In his earlier work, Beating the Dow, O'Higgins presented his "dogs of the Dow" investment strategy that involves investing in "out-of-favor" Dow stocks to result in returns ahead of most average market strategies. Now he explains how to prepare for what he projects as a rapidly approaching time of decline in today's overvalued market with his survival strategy that involves allocating assets among Dow dog stocks, T-bills, and T-bonds. The arcane world of U.S. Treasury bonds and bills is well presented, helping investors better understand how these ventures work as well as how to achieve better returns with these less risky tools. O'Higgins insists incorporating bonds, once considered the ugly stepchild to stocks, in a portfolio, rather than focusing entirely in the market, should beat the Dow Jones Industrial Average in a low-risk manner. Investors worried that the bear market on the rocks below is about to overtake their investments will find this advice of great value. Jack Perkins's immediately identifiable presence lends credence to this valuable contribution to the finance genre. Highly recommended for all public libraries.ÄDale Farris, Groves.
