“Read Jack Ablin’s ‘five factor’ approach to investing and you not only will sleep better at night, you’ll be a smarter, wiser human being. Ablin takes you on his twenty-year journey toward a unified, rational approach to investing that can help you weather even the most turbulent financial storms. This book may be one of the best investments you will ever make.”

--John Callaway, Senior Correspondent, WTTW, Public Television

“This book is based on verifiable data trends and years of experience with a broad array of economic and market numbers. Regret over investment losses need not lead investors to disengage their brains or to be robbed again by schemes hawked as ‘new and improved.’ Reading Minds and Markets will help jump-start an honest investment dialogue that has been sidetracked by excesses of greed and fear.”

--Bill Barnhart, Former Financial Editor and Columnist for the Chicago Tribune

“The author has taken the complex world of investing and provided an extremely practical approach to success where others have failed miserably. His grasp of the financial markets makes him eminently qualified to develop an extremely sound and practical approach in order to protect and enhance wealth for investors.”

--Edward (“Ned”) Riley, Jr., Former Chief Investment Officer for State Street Global Advisors and Chief Investment Officer, Riley Asset Management

“With nearly three decades of experience, Jack Ablin’s superb intellectual thinking is reflected in Reading Minds and Markets. This is great reading for the motivated investor.”

--Professor Israel Shaked, Finance and Economics Department, Boston University, School of Management

You can do more to protect yourself from market risks and down markets. The secret: Understand the big picture and know when to shift money toward more promising industry groups, sectors, or asset classes. This strategy is called “global macro investing”--and, as Chief Investment Officer for Harris Private Bank, Jack Ablin has used it to deliver results for many of the world’s wealthiest families and individuals.

In Reading Minds and Markets, Ablin distills his techniques into a remarkably simple, commonsense five-step plan that any investor can use. You’ll discover how to anticipate some of the more significant shifts in global markets and move investments toward areas that are more likely to grow. Equally important, you’ll learn how to overcome bad habits that inevitably lead to failure--habits all too often reinforced by the financial media.

In today’s unforgiving markets, you need to make smarter high-level decisions and fewer mistakes: This book will help you do both.

Why you must take a top-down view of the market--and how to do it Avoid getting caught off-guard in choppy, highly volatile markets Respond to the market’s powerful signals about relative risk Master strategies for improving return without increasing risk Discover the five factors that consistently tell you where to invest Cut through the clutter of irrelevant dаta: find what matters and use it Stop being your own worst enemy Overcome the #1 obstacle to structuring your best portfolio: human nature

Anyone who intends to select individual stocks or even ETFs owes it to themselves and their dependents to take at least a year and watch the markets carefully, read a few good journals, understand some basic metrics, and start getting into the heads of professional investors who - like it or not - own the capital markets. This book is a good way to get started. I just finished a very good MBA program (which does NOT make me a financial expert). But this book brings together the things you need to understand to have a fighting chance as an individual investor.

Some of the other reviewers rated this work highly, but I respectfully beg to differ. Chapters one through four read like a Infomercial or promotional speech -- they are interesting and build enthusiasm for what the author might write later, but do not contain nuggets of information to keep. As Kenny Rodgers sang, "You have to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em", but that is hardly information that will help the reader build a successful investment strategy.

The five factors that the author says are instrumental in helping the investor make a decision take up the bulk of the book. But at the same time, the author points out that developing and using those factors takes an enormous amount of time and effort -- something an investor with a portfolio below several million dollars probably can't spare. I think the threshold for devoting extensive time in investment analysis probably occurs when the investor can consistently buy stocks in 1,000 share blocks. The author's approach simply leaves the investor who only has four or five stocks in his portfolio in the dust. Nor can the small investor realistically look at foreign markets, commodities trading or currency positions. I remember the advice J. Howard Marshall gave to his son when he became a stockbroker in Houston, "You're at the end of the lever. The action is in New York, and if you're not where the action is, you can't play." Well, the action may have broadened to more locations than New York in the ensuing forty years, but one probably still needs to be in one of those locations to be more than moderately successful (Warren Buffet nothwithstanding.)

The author's five factors are undoubtedly critical elements of intelligence information for the decision-maker. But this presentation really promotes the author and his bank as being on top of heap with respect to market knowledge and the ability to make money under most situations. Ok, maybe that's so, but how does that help me? The metrics presented are too vague for me to put into an investment model without an undo amount of work, and even then they will only provide the correct signals when the signals prove to be correct. Other times they will be incorrect.

The author belittles the "random walk" correctly and the notion that the best time to invest in the market is always now. OK, timing is important, and one needs to analyze trends. I love the gold bugs who tout the rise in the gold price since 2001, but how about the rise since 1982 when it stood at over $800.00 per ounce? And who doesn't remember the idiot saying back in 2003 that the market was being ruled by a new Paradigm and would reach 30,000 by 2010? I thought the author's stress on timing was one of his two most valuable arguments.

The second best point was that the investor should always look at alternatives to the stock market. Absolutely, but why the focus on bonds? The small investor is not looking for income at a low percentage rate or tax-free income. How about real estate, collectibles, gold, foreign markets, commodities, venture capitalization, third-party lending, money exchange markets, etc, etc. Where was the analysis on these alternatives, and how do the author's five metrics aid in making decisions concerning them?

Yes, you can spread the risk by investing across an industry instead of just a single company in that industry. But the investor who would have done that after 9-11 in the airline industry would have done poorly compared to only investing in Airtran Holdings that was less subject to terrorist actions due to having small planes and short flights. In fact, there is an exception to almost every general rule, including those promulgated by the author. And again, does the small investor have the financial capability to spread risk? And if he chooses to spread the risk by buying an index fund, game over.

At any rate, the "Putting It Together" chapter doesn't, and I, for one, came away wishing I hadn't bothered to read the book. Yes, there is much good for an investor who knows nothing about the factors presented by the author, but can this read modify the investor's behavior for the better? I think not, unless the reader wants to put his money on the author's bank.

Please note that everything I have said in this review with respect to investing can be refuted, and that is significant in itself. A 200 page book purporting to help the investor minimize risk and maximize returns without getting down to the nuts and bolts is also not much help.

If you are not a retail investor just starting out, then save the time and don't bother with this book. If you are a retail investor just starting out you will get much more out of something like "investing for dummies". The author has a pretty good writing style, but the book just doesn't offer anything meaningful even for a retail (armature) investor. This book is targeted to the retail entry level investors and while it claims to be focused on global macro investing, it just doesn't have anything more for the retail investor than what can be learned by reading something remedial. In addition, the author uses this book as a platform to repeatedly promote himself and his investment outfit, in fact the first several chapters are strictly focused on self promotion. Furthermore, the matrices and critical statistics used by the author are vague and provide very little insight. I wish I hadn't wasted the time to read this book. I have read many books on investing and this is by far the most useless book I've read on investing. This must be my only 1 star review.

...this book actually offers basic, time-honored, and largely traditional investment strategies.

So, no, this book won't help you "read minds" or "read markets" but does provide many ways to structure your investment portfolio.

If you are looking to personally manage a portfolio of, oh, say $200,000 to $2 million and you don't want to have a professional handle it for you, you will find a lot of valuable information here. For example, he provides some structures for you to use in your asset allocation. And he shows you how to use P/E to your advantage. There's quite a bit of puffery about this being a "global" and "global macro" investment strategy but virtually NO information on how one might go about intelligently investing in foreign stocks.

If you want some "meat and potatoes" investment advice in a quick and easy read, this might be the book for you.

I generally enjoy reading the latest business/investing books when they come out, but this one was quite disappointing at many levels. Far too general, it has that ghost writer feel - and surprise! The "author" had a ghost writer! One of the most bland investing books I've encountered in some time.

Here are some other criticisms:
1. Too much emphasis on efficient market hypothesis.
2. The author doesn't realize that gold is heavily manipulated, and that the Plunge Protection Team took it down as the stock market cratered to herd the Sheeple into Treasuries for a proper fleecing.
3. He's in favor of bailouts to failed companies.
4. Too much focus on how his system works with bonds - how would the system work with other markets?
5. What is a smaller investor to do with this book? Would a larger portfolio manager have anything to gain?

Consequently, I'm afraid this book deserves just one star.
