Very Poor Update of a Good Book
on July 28, 2017
I bought the original and liked it very much, in fact it has retained a prime spot in my investment bookshelf for all these years. Unfortunately the fifth edition has missed multiple opportunities to be a true update. Sorry Mr. Kelly, it seems like you are just plain milking the original. The original was fresh and engaging with ideas that, while hardly fresh, were very much operand and helpful for the times. This new edition is rather stale and very derivative, just plain weak to be honest. Really, maybe Value Averaging is Mr Kelly's "new" thing but please, it is just yet another old idea and largely discredited by many prominent source and authorities, (where is the money required to buy kept when one must buy?) Could you come up with nothing authentic and original?. The other "updates" are slight, marginal, superficial and would be easily discovered by anyone who has any business investing their real money on line. Your first book help people with fear \on the web, that is gone novel am disappointed and oddly, sigh, a bit sad, please do better is there is a next time, otherwise no next time. OK Mr. Kelly? Save your reputation and my fond memories of you good book.
