Friend Lauren Templeton and husband Scott Phillips recently wrote a book on investment strategies. You can find it here.

Lauren is the grand niece of Sir John Templeton, “the greatest stock picker of the century” according to Money Magazine (he's also responsible for the 'Templeton' in Franklin Templeton Investments). Applying principles learned from Sir John, Lauren made a name for herself in the investment world in her twenties when she launched a successful capital management company and two hedge funds. She's an amazing young woman, and you can meet her at Davis Kidd Books later this month. Here are the details:
