2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive, November 30, 2012

This review is from: How To Really Ruin Your Financial Life and Portfolio (Kindle Edition)
I really like Ben Stein and I like Iistening to him on financial shows. I think he has a lot of common sense when it comes to money. Unfortunately, this book is excessively repetitive. He chooses every financial way there is to make money [stock markent, bonds, ETF, etc] and lets you know all the ways a private investor can go wrong considering the advantages giant financial institutions have when investing. Unfortunately, all the ways you can make mistakes are pretty much the same for every type of investment. It all comes down to the fact that giant investment houses are also trying to make money and they employ thousands of people all around the world to gain an advantage in the market, and as a private investor you can never match that. His advice: Don't think you will beat the street. Invest with the crowd. Sadly, you will have learned this in chapter one, and by chapter three it is monotonous. I didn't read the last chapters.
