5.0 out of 5 stars Scholary yet readable!, July 10, 2008
This review is from: Precious Metals Investing For Dummies (Paperback)
This work by Paul Mladjenovic is an excellent contribution to the Dummies series. Rather than trying to entertain the reader which some Dummies authors try to do, the author writes in a serious yet comprehensible style. True to the title, the author gives dozens and dozens of websites helpful in educating oneself and in determining where to invest. The twenty-four chapters, Diversifying with Metals, The Beauty and Benefits of Metals, Discovering the Secret of Silver, Buying Metals Direct, etc. all add another dimension to the world of investing by oneself in precious metals. The work is slow-reading due to all the details but never boring or cumbersome.

I found this review rather odd. It states that the author writes in a serious yet comprehensible style, yet I felt that he did exactly the opposite and--like most other Dummies books--tried too hard to entertain. There were numerous "jokes" about his wife's gold jewelry, him trying not to use the word "crash" in the stocks section, etc. etc. -- very slapstick and painful humor attempts. The other issue I found with the book--though I enjoyed most of the content--was the atrocious editing and rampant grammatical errors. There were so many grammar issues, in fact, that it became downright distracting midway through the book.
