Andrew Allentuck is a longtime investment author and journalist who knows more about some of the topics he writes about than do some of the investment experts he interviews. Better yet, he has an entertaining, easy-to-read style that makes it a pleasure to absorb the insider knowledge he delivers in Cherished Fortune.

Andrew Allentuck and Benoit Poliquin’s unconventional approach to investing — to treat your portfolio as you would a small business — aims to make a complicated topic more welcoming for the average investor. The simplicity in their recommended tactic — to invest in what you know — is sure to resonate with those who are new to investing or find it intimidating. In addition, their strategy for managing risk will help more experienced investors adopt a buy-and-hold strategy and diversify their assets while avoiding the high-flying stocks of the day that are likely to fail.

If I were to suggest one book that any new investor should read before entering the market, it would be Cherished Fortune. Practical, smart, and highly readable, authors Allentuck and Poliquin convincingly illustrate how knowledge and common sense are paramount to building (and cherishing) your fortune.

Cherished Fortune is a great approach for the long term accumulation of wealth. I have used this common-sense financial planning process successfully to my clients for the past 30 years. A highly recommended read.

Cherished Fortune is an extremely well-written and detailed look into the complicated world of finance, seen from the lens of two industry veterans. It offers the lesson that investors don't need to be overly fancy to achieve their goals. Allentuck and Poliquin give the reader historical references to certain milestones in achievements and failures – an excellent portrayal of humanity at both its best and worst. Having worked in the financial industry for about a quarter-century, I am glad to see such a comprehensive book that is accurate, factual and a great read.

Andrew and Benoit take us on an amazing journey of financial knowledge – their ability to cover so much in one book is a testament to their inherent understanding on how to make your money grow. I've never seen a book beautifully cover all asset classes through a lens of simplicity versus one of complexity quite like Cherished Fortune. I can say with certainty that I can share Cherished Fortune with my family, friends and clients knowing that they will be empowered and gain a sense of confidence that they too can make their wealth grow.
