Mr This book is a collection of Andrew Tobias' writings during a time when it was believed that only a fool would invest in the stock market or in real estate, when interest rates were.

Tobias is a sensational financial writer, despite being a staunch Democrat, LoL. "Getting By on 100,000 a Year" is a collection of stories concerning money management, or mismanagement, that are (mostly) both funny and amazingly educational, despite being written in the '70s. This book is a collection of Andrew Tobias' writings during a time when it was believed that only a fool would invest in the stock market or in real estate, when interest rates were expected to go up forever, and when high inflation was considered to be a permanent part of the "new economy".

0671255185 (ISBN13: 9780671255183). Tobias is always interesting, and this book - extremely dated and set firmly in its time, during a period of overall dismal US stock market returns and high inflation, with most of its pieces written in the late 1970s - represents a fascinating look back. But there's little coherency among topics, and except for investment and finance nerds like moi, this isn't likely to be of great interest to readers 30-plus years later.

Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

  • Mr. Tobias is a sensational financial writer, despite being a staunch Democrat, LoL.
    "Getting By on 100,000 a Year" is a collection of stories concerning money
    management, or mismanagement, that are (mostly) both funny and amazingly educational,
    despite being written in the '70s. (The guy who gives it 2 stars evidently thinks
    financial common sense is an outdated concept. Maybe he works in government, or banking....)

  • This book is a collection of Andrew Tobias' writings during a time when it was believed that only a fool would invest in the stock market or in real estate, when interest rates were expected to go up forever, and when high inflation was considered to be a permanent part of the "new economy". The advice is just as relevant today, since the moral of the book is whatever opinion the public has adopted as a nearly unanimous consensus, is demonstrated by Tobias to be exactly the opposite of what will actually happen. In current times, with everyone crazy about real estate, it is fascinating to learn how Tobias purchases a huge apartment for sixteen thousand dollars in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Everyone he knows thinks he's crazy for doing so, since they all figure that New York real estate will never recover. It is also marvelous to read Tobias describe how, when silver was selling at the insane price of $50 an ounce, he goes to one of the tiny gold and silver shops that sprang up in the late 1970s all across the country. Two hundred people are lined up around the block to enter the store. Tobias surveys the crowd. Only 3 people want to sell their silver; the others are all eager to buy at the top of the market. Replace "silver" with "real estate" and it's completely relevant for today.

  • Financial advice from a guy who owns 17 oil wells. I saw this book in a $1 store, and bought it mainly for the title and the author's rather funny style. BUT it was written in the 1970s, so the financial advice (why not to buy gold, etc.) is badly dated. Still, some things (his reaction to the first-time introduction of disposable razors and his worries about the environment) are really worth reading from a historical standpoint. he profiles famous men and women of finance (including a blind female stock-market whiz billionaire, and a male scammer with a pyramid scheme who made a mint and was never arrested) and comments on then-timely issues such as the battle over the King Kong remake between Paramount and UNiversal. At the end of the day, this is a book for history buffs, and people who want to trace the roots of today's financial crises. But if you're looking for How-To-Expand-Your-Portfolio, this is not it. Strictly historical/anthropological value.

  • Andy Tobias wrote a bunch of really interesting magazine pieces back in the 70's that got me hooked on his witty, no nonsense business advice. This book is a collection of those articles and is notable for it's relevance to the time. It's also fun to see how 35 years later the statements in the book remain true today.
