Top Customer Reviews
* The book was very clearly written
* Complex topics were explained in the most basic of terms
* The book did an outstanding job of Illustrating the macro monetary situation we are in currently in by examining the recent and current financial situation, the fed's intervention and the like.
The juciest section for me was Section 1 where the Author painted an elaborate and elegant picture as to the situation we are in and how unprecedented it is. Atop of this he covered disciplines that one needs to understand in order to frame the picture that we are now in the midst of: historical contexts, long wave cycles, etc and he also does an excellent job of providing facts and charts which illustrates his points in the clearest of terms. He tends to allude to where things may be headed but never says it outright. So its pretty gripping - and like good Hitchcock movie it feels like foreshadowing of really great things that he will cover later in the book. Bravo for section 1 - get the book for this reason alone.
I was a bit disappointed in the second section - namely the investment section:
* the book did an excellent job of going through the different investment options one may face in the current environment yet I felt it was overly simplistic in some cases -- while the complexity of the first section was closer to what I expected, the investing section felt a bit like a "beginners guide" - perhaps too simplistic.
Finally, I was also disappointed as the book didn't make any predictions.Read more ›
The book gives the reader a very good understanding of the big picture and the macro factors that affect it. I learned quite a few things.
The reasons that I can not give it a 5 stars is because
1 There is very limited coverage of equity selection. For example, what type of equities will do better relatively in an inflationary period, or the characteristics of different equities and how to select them. The author talks about equity as a whole and at a high level.
2 The author gives the Federal Reserve too high a grade. His evaluation of the incentives of the Federal Reserve system and the motives of the people running the Federal Reserve is too high and off the mark. He also praised the Fed for saving the world from a total collapse (in 2008-2009), which can never be proved true or imaginary.
Despite these short comings, investors can most likely benefit from this book.
This is a fantastic gift book for high school seniors and college aid students to introduce them to real world issues regarding finance and investing topics. This is especially true for his individual chapters in Part II regarding asset allocation, stock markets, interest rates and the bond market, U.S. Dollar, Gold, Commodities, and Real Estate. Very well written for whatever level of investor you are, new or very experienced.
