    Great book. I bought it when I read about it in the CV Record newspaper…. I would like to know how you would suggest investing a small windfall….. By dollar cost averaging you take some of the risk out over the long haul, but what do you do when you want to purchase lump sum. How do you mitigate the risks of buying at the top? Sit and wait? Buy a little each month? I look forward to reading your site on a regular basis.
