Now more than ever, the value of Investment-Grade Wines (IGWs) and opportunities to invest in wine as an asset class are soaring. With a little research and a little risk, wine enthusiasts on every level will find it possible to gain big rewards in wine investment -- and there's never been a better time to try. IGWs have dependably outperformed blue chip stocks over the past 150 years, and the upscale wine market is still an area in which independent investors can profit handsomely.

A third-generation wine merchant, and CEO of one of the largest rare-wine companies in the world, David Sokolin knows how to turn fine wine into cold cash. And he knows how you can, too. In simple, practical terms, Investing in Liquid Assets provides all the information you need to understand the economic principles that govern the world of fine wine and take advantage of the resources currently available.

Using his insider's expertise, Sokolin defines Investment-Grade Wine and identifies the most financially important wine regions and styles. Defining the key players in the field, Sokolin shows you how to navigate the world of wine critics and understand the impact of their scores, and he explains why it's perfectly fine that your own personal tastes really don't matter. He offers tips on where to find reputable sources for fine wine, how to manage storage and resale, as well as all-important buying and selling strategies. In the second half of the book, he gives overviews of the world's greatest wine regions and offers his predictions about which regions and which wines are likely to represent the greatest investment opportunities in the near future.

Providing information and tactics previously known only to successful professionals, Investing in Liquid Assets turns your passion for fine wine into a valuable resource that will pay for itself.

Alexandra Bruce
Based on a best-selling documentary film of the same name, this books presents the “Law of Attraction,” which, according to the tagline, “has traveled through centuries to reach you.”

By synthesizing “how to get rich” ideas from classic self-help books by Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Getting Rich), Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich!), and Charles Haanel (The Master Key System) with twenty-five modern-day self-improvement gurus like Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Michael Bernard Beckwith, James Ray, Lisa Nichols, and Joe Vitale, author Rhonda Byrne and her team have created an almost alchemically rich and compelling promise.

They claim that “The Secret” was discovered by such historical luminaries as Plato, da Vinci, Galileo, Napoleon, Hugo, Beethoven, Newton, Edison, and Einstein/ that “The Secret” has existed in fragments in religions, philosophies, and oral traditions for centuries . . . but only now has it all been put together. “The Secret is everything you have dreamed of . . . and is beyond your wildest dreams,” trumpet the marketing materials. Could it really be true, or is it just a new spin on the very old (and decidedly not secret) “the power of positive thinking” wedded to “ask and you shall receive”?

Alexandra Bruce goes behind the scenes to investigate the phenomenon, from its roots in Australia to the sales bonanza that has seen creator Rhonda Byrne become the most successful debut author in memory. Bruce takes a hard but fair look at the “teachers” featured in The Secret and the “Law of Attraction” that is the central theme. To truly understand the significance of The Secret, perspective is needed. Beyond The Secret delivers that and much more.
