"The Intuitive Investor: A Radical Guide for Manifesting Wealth" Named a ForeWord Reviews 2010 Book of the Year Finalist, Business and Economics Category

Ex Fund Manager's Book Challenges Many Conceptions About Investing; Offers Enlightened How-To Plan for Coupling Intuitive, Right-Brain Thinking With Analytical, Left-Brain Thinking to Make Better Investment Decisions

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - The Intuitive Investor: A Radical Guide for Manifesting Wealth has been named by ForeWord Reviews as one of its 2010 Book of the Year Awards list of finalists, business and economics category. Written by former fund manger Jason Apollo Voss, the book challenges many conceptions about investing while offering readers an enlightened How-To plan for coupling intuition and right-brain thinking with analytical, left-brain thinking to make better investment decisions.

ForeWord's Book of the Year Awards program was created to spotlight distinctive books from independent publishers. Representing more than 350 publishers, finalists were selected from 1400 entries in 56 categories. Winners will be announced at the American Library Association Annual Conference in New Orleans June 23-28.

Voss was a Wall Street wunderkind investor who, as co-Portfolio Manager of the Davis Appreciation & Income Fund from 2000-2005, bested NASDAQ by 77%, S&P 500 by 49% and the DJIA by 36%; the fund was named a Lipper Leader, received Morningstar's highest rating for ethical stewardship of investor money, and was ranked No. 1 in its investment category.

In the book Voss asserts that while facts, probabilities, and performance records are certainly useful tools in assessing investment opportunities, investment decision-making is as much an intuitive, creative "right-brain" process as it is an analytical, "left-brain" procedure.

To support his position, Voss analyzes the use of key right-brain functions to address crucial issues faced by the investor such as: understanding potential risks and market bottoms, properly evaluating an investment target, recognizing the "mood" of financial markets, and how to turn fear and anxiety around investments into a valuable asset.

In its March 1, 2011 review of The Intuitive Investor, ForeWord said, "For the most part, every book about investing deals with the ins and outs of the financial marketplace and offers advice that relates to how and when to invest... The Intuitive Investor puts all that aside and comes at investing from a completely different and, in fact, unique perspective."

Continues ForeWord, "The Intuitive Investor is engaging and comprehensive in its study of how intuition can play a defining role in determining investment strategies. Interestingly, this book should offer a reader much value in the way of understanding intuition, even if investing is not a person's primary objective. The Intuitive Investor won't reveal any secrets about great investments, but it will teach investors to think differently about how they make their decisions."
