Despite detours into personal stories about poker, chess and other matters, the author offers some good ideas about long-term investing. The ideas aren't necessarily unique, but that doesn't make them worthless. For example, he suggests investing in companies with good management and a history of dividend increase. He also suggests using demographics for picking the sectors to invest in.
This book was published before the 2008 housing and financial crisis, so it is interesting to consider the author's specific recommendations with the benefit of hindsight. I'm not a stock analyst, but many of his picks seem to have survived the crisis, and perhaps even thrived. Altucher may have clumsy social skills, but he is a smart man with unique experiences and insights in investing and entrepreneurship.
