Raleigh, NC, Dec 17, 2020 -- “Joe Christian has written the ultimate guide to become a do-it-yourself investor. With excellent storytelling and powerful insights, you won’t be able to put this book down.”

- Marshall Goldsmith
, world-renowned executive coach and author of the New York Times #1 best sellers Triggers, Mojo, and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

“In Investing with a Full Deck, Joe demonstrates an insightful understanding of the human psyche that unblurs the lines between the world of money management and the poker table. There are the investor and the gambler, the patient and the anxious, the stoic and the emotional- all distinguishing traits that separate the winners from the losers. I have hired successful poker players as money managers, and I have witnessed many retired hedge fund managers go on to become successful poker players. There is often genius in simplicity, and this book is just that. The reader is furnished with the step-by-step guidance necessary to win the game of achieving financial independence. A fascinating read.”

- Louis Bacon, founder, chairman, and principal investment manager, Moore Capital, a multibillion-dollar hedge fund

“Joe has written a gem of a book filled with fresh insights, cleverness, and humor. He also provides some interesting perspectives into our often-precarious relationship with money. This book is both educational and entertaining!”

- Deborah Price, CEO and founder, the Money Coaching Institute

“Who knew there could be a fascinating, engaging, and even gripping book about investing? Well, this is it. And it’s a book about life. Short, punchy chapters will entertain you and give you plenty of guidance about the most important issues for prosperity and happiness. It’s full of great stories and memorable quotes. I wish I had read this as a young man. Enjoy!”

- Tom Morris, best-selling author of If Aristotle Ran General Motors, The Art of Achievement, Plato’s Lemonade Stand, and The Oasis Within, among many other books
