The book definitely contains interesting and engaging information, and it does a fair job of providing examples of the various biases through historical and current market conditions. It also discusses various types of biases in the context of famous (and not so famous) past and current investors.
I really liked the way the book mentioned past scientists who tried to introduce new ideas into society -- and their ideas were right -- but society did not accept them until much later, and often only after the scientists died. This is an example of how the author introduces very interesting stories and facts into the main narrative of the book; these kinds of things really add to the color and flavor and interesting nature of the book.
So it's quite an interesting book; the author enriches it with interesting stories that exemplify the principles being explained; and often the author's sense of humor shows up well in various sentences scattered throughout the book.
My main issue with the book is that many -- and I do mean many -- sentences in the book seem much too long and awkward to me. I found myself _repeatedly_ having to reread sentences multiple times to parse the grammatical phrase and clause structure of the sentences, to see where the missing comma or emphasis should be in order to have the sentence make sense.Read more ›
