About the book:

The Halfwit Crustacean is a book about Gwen Hofmeyr’s investment beginnings, as she recounts all her most embarrassing mistakes made during her first year as a budding investor. From costly micro-trades to a fortunate kiss from Lady Luck, The Halfwit Crustacean provides an unorthodox look into the chaos of the retail investing world.

“Gwen’s gripping and down-to-earth account of her beginnings as an investor contains a glimpse into the mindset of a highly self-aware, talented investor. By revisiting mistakes and examining forthrightly what went wrong, Gwen takes us on a journey that is bound to make each of us a better investor. The reader will find the lessons contained in this book to be invaluable. A must read for anyone looking to learn and grow as an investor!” –John Mihaljevic, CFA
