The Naked Investor: Why Almost Everybody But You Gets Rich on Your RRSPThe Naked Investor: Why Almost Everybody But You Gets Rich on Your RRSP by John Lawrence Reynolds

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well-written book illustrating the perils of institutional investing in Canada. I appreciated the many examples of people who got cheated by advisors and the clear direction on what to look out for.

Unfortunately, being published in 2007, the book is a little dated by now, but otherwise a good read. In addition, one of the main problems I see with a book like this is that it frightens all investors and they just put their money in GICs or under their mattress. It would have been nice if he had presented more positive options.

A worthwhile read if you keep in mind the problems.
