About the Author

Phil DeMuth is an investment advisor. He was valedictorian of his class at the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1972, and then went on for his master’s in communication and Ph.D. in clinical psychology before anyone could stop him. A psychologist and investment advisor, Phil has written for the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Forbes, the Journal of Financial Planning, Human Behavior and Psychology Today (and anyone else who will dare to publish him), and is the author of nine books on investing, most co-authored with his pal, economist Ben Stein, and some of which have been New York Times bestsellers.

His opinions have been quoted in the New York Times, the Financial Times, Yahoo! Finance, On Wall Street, Fortune, Research Magazine, Investor’s Business Daily, Motley Fool,, and Playboy (not a pictorial, though) and he has been seen on various TV shows, including Consuelo Mack WealthTrack, CNBC’s Worldwide Exchange, On the Money, Squawk Box and Closing Bell, as well as Fox & Friends, and Wall Street Week (basically, anyone who will stick a microphone in front of his face).

Importantly, his high school rock band opened for Herman’s Hermits at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, and he served as a judge for one episode of the immortal TV reality show America’s Most Smartest Model.
