Amazing book, helps you keep your wealth.

Explains concepts that most modern people either don't know about or they are unwilling ti find for themselves. It reinforced the ideas and my strategy for investing.

Really a must read for anyone wanting to build and HOLD a large amount of wealth. This should be part of the curriculum in my opinion. Really a good read.

Simple easy to follow advice that anyone can follow. Now its up to the reader to execute.

Author wastes hours proving his points.

This book has very good concepts, but the repetitive examples used to prove his points become tiresome and annoying. This book could have been half the length. I found myself saying constantly, "Okay, I get your point, move on!" Perhaps investors make common mistakes with their money, but smart investors make the most of their time. So be a smart investor and find a 30 min book summary and skip the book.

Got one big lesson from this one

Don't time the market and, when you have money to invest, just invest it all right away and then forget about it. Then hold on for a long time. The advice, backed by some statistics, was helpful to me. Geared towards the index investor not anyone actively selecting stocks but still worth the time invested I thought.

very informative on a novice's level

I loved it! There was a lot of information that challenged me to understand but that's exactly what I wanted. The author was extremely knowledgeable. I wouldn't mind reading again. There's a lot of strategy that I can apply today.

Targeted at a US audience

Some good generally applicable principles and advocating passive investments for the most part. However, quite digestible and you don’t need an understanding of investing to get it.

The Must Read

I am not going to be able to find the words to express how good this book is.

I am an IFA in the UK and because of this audiobook I have brought the paper copy and carry it in my bag.
