From today until February 20th, Andrew Horowitz, author of the Disciplined Investor and host of a largely popular financial podcast series and blog, is making his book available for free through MSN Money Central.

The MSN Money Page also summarizes some of Andrew’s strategies for surviving in a down market and how you might protect your investments as well using strategies that can be beneficial in both bull and bear markets.  The page – including the download link (PDF) -is entitled “Three Ways to Make Money in a Downturn.

A description from MSN Money:

“Andrew Horowitz, The Disciplined Investor, wins the 18th round of the MSN Money Strategy Lab Stock Picking Challenge.  With this monumental success he will offer a limited time free download of his book, “The Disciplined Investor – Essential Strategies for Success” to MSN Money users. Despite market conditions and within a public forum Andrew managed to gain 14.5% in a market that was down over 34% in the past several months using his QuantaFundaTechna strategy. The book contains several tips and tricks that Horowitz used in developing the strategy and is a great resource for both the novice and more experienced investor.”

On a personal note, I was interviewed by Andrew for one of his Podcasts entitled “Making the Grade with Afraid to Trade” which was a fun and enjoyable experience.  We’ve kept in touch since then and I was able to have lunch with Andrew during my trip to the Money Show in Orlando and was quite impressed with him.

I asked why he was making his book available for free and his response was that he wanted to make basic investment education available to those who have been hit hard in the recent stock market downturn.

I really like the way he combines fundamental, technical, and quantitative strategies in a simple method to help improve investment choices and overall analysis.  In his book, he also discusses strategies beyond the stock and bond markets for investment alternatives which can give a more holistic approach to investing.

Go ahead and check out the book and be sure to drop Andrew a ‘thank you’ if you get a chance to do so.
