Have you listened to any of Brian Holsopple’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
The announcer did a great job.
Any additional comments?
I call this a feel bad book. It offers no actionable advice only a lot of regurgitation of cliche admonishing the reader to not follow the crowd and not be an all out contrarian. It flips back and forth saying the market is full of surprises but is not a random walk. It even spends a whole chapter naming many better books you should have bought.
The one tool it introduces is LEI saying it is the only tool you need but admits it did nothing for investors before the biggest market correction of our lifetime the crash of 2008. But he says they fixed that it would have worked in its new form. Worthless! In the past Ken used to tout a concept called PSR but stopped talking about that when it was clear it never did work.
Ken also cherry picks some articles he wrote in Forbes, where he was right and reads them in a "how smart am I manor". but this book has conveniently forgotten his many wrong bits advice in Forbes.
Ken Fisher is a hanger-on hack whose father Phillip Fisher was a great author of books on walls street. Looks like another child of greatness trying to sell a few books to pay the rent.

Beside the real objective contrarianism, the book has many general informative guidelines for investors. Moreover, the authors recommended many splendid books that all investors should read as well.

no clue what Ken Fisher is talking about or how one can beat the crowd by reading this book, there is nothing to learn except listen to past references explained in most complicated and worst possible way... the only white elephant in the room is this book... i am Ken Fisher fan, you can learn so much more from his interviews because he talks straight and direct in his interviews but this book is just disappointing from start to the end...
this book is riddled with references to familiar childhood movies, phrases and quotes whilst providing information that although are factual. are warped into what seems to be intentionally misleading the reader into doing the exact opposite of what its title indicates...waste of money
