Some useful ideas, some less so
This book provides some interesting ideas on how to manage your investments, but as another reviewer has already stated, some of the strategies are not easy for the individual investor to employ. I don't think I'll be able to meet the bankers of the companies I am investing in anytime soon!
So, I would not put this at the top of my list of investing books to recommend, but do not completely pan it either. The author does espouse a long term investment strategy and offers what appears to be some sound advice for choosing investments. One particular bit of advice was a set of 14 points, some of which can be used as a screen to look for potential investments.
If you have not read (or listened to) "One Up on Wall Street" by Peter Lynch, that is a work I highly recommend.

Struggled with monotone voice, but good book
I thought the book was useful, but I struggled with the reader's voice. This book took me much longer than I anticipated because I had gotten lost in the monotone voice. I had to rewind and review parts multiple times to get it. I ultimately used a summary to help me get the jist of the book, which helped me the most.
