Today's stock market is not for the faint-hearted. At a time when high-frequency traders and hedge funds seem to have the upper hand, one might ask what the average investor is to do.

Turn to the rock-solid advice in Burton G. Malkiel's best-selling guide to investing. A Random Walk Down Wall Street now features new material on exchange traded funds and investment opportunities in emerging markets as well as a brand-new chapter on "smart beta" funds. And as always, Malkiel's core insights-on stocks, bonds and money markets as well as property investment trusts and tangible assets-along with the book's life-cycle guide to investing, will restore confidence and composure to anyone seeking a calm route through today's financial markets.
