New Permanent Portfolio Book Available for Pre-Order

Post by craigr » Fri Apr 06, 2012 1:17 am

We’re pleased to announce that the new Permanent Portfolio book is available for pre-order from Wiley publishing directly or through Amazon.com.

The book is entitled: The Permanent Portfolio: Harry Browne’s Long-Term Investment Strategy.

We are very excited to write this update and hope to fill the very large shoes of Harry Browne. This book provides updates to his strategy that mirror his ideas and philosophies, and provides options to investors to apply the strategy to whatever situation they find themselves in with their money.

The book is available directly from Wiley at this link:

The Permanent Portfolio: Harry Browne’s Long-Term Investment Strategy

Also it is available from Amazon.com. The title at Amazon is in error and will be updated to the correct one shortly:

The Permanent Portfolio: Harry Browne’s Long-Term Investment Strategy (A Kindle version will be available in the near future)

The book will also be available from other outlets as well. We appreciate the readers of the blog and forum for all your support and hope you enjoy this book.

Best of luck with your new book! Will it have information that even a fairly knowledgeable PP'er could use?

That's a question that probably can't be answered until the book is out there and people are providing reviews.  I think that we did our best to be exhaustive without turning it into one of those 19th century-style 12 volume sets.

Yep. It's nearly 110,000 words. We could have probably doubled it if necessary!

I definitely think even knowledgeable Permanent Portfolio investors will get something from it.

craigr,

You know we're going to buy it regardless, but I didn't think you could get a whole lot deeper than we've gotten on this forum.

Nice work!

Is there any advantage to pre-ordering the book?

Sounds like it's finished... does it really take 6-7 months to print?

Looking forward to it either way.  I've been Kindle-only for a while but might actually like to have a paper copy of this one (or both, right? ;) )

There is probably some minor editing and formatting to be done, along with the addition of some material at the front and back of the book.

The timeline is the publisher's.

There will definitely be a Kindle and other eBook versions. We just don't have word from the publisher on all of that yet. But yes it will happen.

Great, I'm looking forward to it.  I'm definitely going to buy it when its available.  I'll place it right next to my other Harry Browne books.
