Not how to make it or invest it or any of the ordinary topics but how to be with it.

Tobias, “the funniest of financial writers” (Newsweek), writes a “refreshingly honest” chronicle (Kirkus Reviews) of his own financial exploits and escapades, in a book that is part financial memoir, part investment how-to, and part comedy of errors. Index.

I usually enjoy books by Andrew Tobias. This one contained an interminable harrangue about auto insurance and Ralph Nader. Really too long. And too involved. I have had my share of dealings with insurance companies and with trial lawyers.
Tobias is usually succinct; not this time.

we often forget (or do not want to) deal with a lot of what we have to, especially finances. This book makes you think about what you are doing

I realize that this book is several years old (the hardback came out in 1997), but the ideas and stories are just as relevant today as they were back then. I found my copy a couple of days ago when I found a box of books that had been packed away for about ten years, picked it up and read it through again and enjoyed it just as much the second time around. You will have to make allowances for dollar amount and current event references, but that (for me anyway) did not detract at all from the book.
A word of warning, this is not a rehash or continuation of his most famous book, "The Only Investment Guide You Will Ever Need", it's pretty much what the title suggests, a recap of his various investments and other related and not-so-related topics, liberally sprinkled with wry and humorous observations. This is a fun book to read, and it's one of the few books of its type that can bring a smile to your face, and maybe even a laugh-out-loud moment or two. And underneath it all, in a low-key sort of way, this book makes you think. And that's a good thing. This might be an olde, but it's definitely a goody.

In this volume Andrew Tobias shares his adventures in personal finance and politics. The political part is only relevant as a guide to how things are actually done in that arena and also as a warning about how such things affect one's personal finances ( and perhaps as a plug for auto insurance reform). Tobias uses his personal experiences to support his position that slow wins the personal fortune game, even for those with a small fortune to start with. His involvement with auto insurance reform cost him money. His real estate investments are still up in the air. His Russian company and advertisments on smoking hazards worked to a degree. What is really great about this book is that Tobias takes you along on a ride through his personal finances:where his money came from, where it went to. Those looking for a finance guide in this book alone will be disappointed. It is more like the "laboratory research" that supports his point of view in The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need. The only quibble I have with the book is that Chapter 6 Your Vast Fortune appears rushed and scattered. As another reviewer pointed out most of this book is magazine articles collected together. It may be that the parts written to hold it all together are second rate. However, the book is humorous and a good read. It is definitely worth the time. It is also very self-effacing although I am not sure of the sincerity of the author in this regard.

The other reviews cover the contents quite well. This is a book that has tidbits which have stuck with me over time, such as Tobias' account of how he purchased air-time in Russia to warn people there about the dangers of smoking and foreign cigarette companies. Probably the most influential chapter for me in this election year is the one on auto insurance reform, in that it paints a picture of Ralph Nader as someone who is all-too-human on this issue. Mr. Nader appears to make up his mind early on to support his lawyer friends, and has a "please don't confuse me with the facts" attitude. Obviously this is Tobias' own view of the world, but as a liberal and a man whose father helped Nader first become famous, he is sad to see Nader refuse to even discuss the issue with him.
The book occasionally meanders through topics and areas with little focus, such as his account of protracted real-estate headaches. That said, it is enjoyable overall in many ways and I definitely recommend it.

Ah, the elusive and mysterious world of personal finance. I first heard of Andrew Tobias from his website, where he dissects and explains all mutual funds expenses. Not all no-load funds are created equal, and I realized that thanks to him. This book is great to get a sense of who Andrew Tobias is, what his core investing philosophy is, and be entertained in the meantime (he has lived a fascinating life). I can see where those readers who know a couple of things about personal finance might be a bit frustrated with the book, which is more than anything an autobiography. It was certainly worth my while to read it, and I recommend it.

OK. Not bad but not great.
I'm a huge Tobias fan since I read his most popular book "The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need" in eight grade. I'm now 35 and read everything he put out. The content of the book (car insurance lobbying,Russia, and Miami Apartments, etc were all extensive features written by him for Worth Magazine. I felt that I didn't get my monies worth with this one. If you haven't read these previously published articles then by all means buy the book for he's true to form with his way of telling stories in a humorous light.
