The Lazy Investor - Derek Foster This book is one I'd highly recommend to any Canadian who wants to set up a Dividend reinvestment and share purchase plan (DRIP and SPP).Fosters style is breezy and easy to read and full of references to websites, forums, and other sources of help to get you on your way. The book has a lot of specifics and I especially like his how to steps on setting up investments for your kids. I'm a big fan of using DRIPS and SPPs because I saw how well it works when I was buying my employers stock for 20 years. Its amazing!I didn't agree with his philosophy on registered education savings plans...he doesn't use them. I think that is shortsighted because basically, the governement gives you free money to augment your savings.
