"Nick has a genuine gift - while he uses rigorous empirical evidence to make his case, he also manages to tell the story in such a way to keep the reader's attention and give them practical, actionable advice. In addition, he has just enough of a mischievous streak to challenge some long-held assumptions about investing, but in a manner that makes the empirical data a fresh, interesting story. Investors, new and old, will benefit from Nick's practical approach to investing."

“Nick Maggiulli clearly delights in flouting the received wisdom about how people should manage their money. The end result is a book that’s full of both aha moments and practical takeaways. As a fellow writer about personal finance, I felt a creeping sense of jealousy in what I was reading. Nick takes the tired topics of how to save and invest well and managed to make them utterly fresh and even quite a bit of fun.”
Christine Benz, Director of Personal Finance, Morningstar
“The first time I read Nick Maggiulli's writing I knew he had a special talent. There are lots of good data scientists, and lots of good storytellers. But few understand the data and can tell a compelling story about it like Nick. This is a must read.”
Morgan Housel, bestselling author of The Psychology of Money
“Just Keep Buying is the ideal combination of thoughtful and actionable. Maggiulli not only uses evidence to guide his suggestions, but he is also among the best at boiling everything down into ideas that are easy-to-understand and apply.”
