Great information but sloppy,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: All About Asset Allocation, Second Edition (Paperback)
This is a great book for someone looking to assemble their portfolio and not only successfully diversify it, but understand WHY diversification among asset classes works to reduce risk and increase returns.
My only real complaint is that it's sloppy - thus the three stars. I almost had to put the book down because I found so many spelling and grammatical errors in the first chapter. It was very distracting to me.
One has to wonder if this book was even proofread. (I think one or two errors in an entire volume is somewhat acceptable, but not the level of errors seen here.) I asked myself "Can I take the advice of such a careless author?" But in the end I think the concepts are mostly sound and it's a helpful intro.
But please, do a revision and fix all the errors!

Thanks for your review. I like what I've heard and read about Rick Ferri, but I despise reading books that are poorly edited. I think I'll give this book a pass, and just stick to Rick's Forbes blog.
