This was a good overview but I think I would have liked reading the book because I could have gone back over some of the investment strategies and terms. However, it did give me some background information that was helpful.

Repeatative and Left Me Regretting
It seemed like the author repeated himself half a dozen times saying the same stuff over and over. He failed to really yield any information that was really useful to me. I was expecting a discussion on the different types of investments (which he sort of does) and then theories and suggestions on which types of investments to use in a game-plan approach. That is, if your investment portfolio was a train made up of cars (different types of investments), what type of cars work well together to make a strong portfolio...
I feel that instead, what I got was a half-hearted attempt to explain individual types of investments, and long, wordy lists of specific companies and their investment options to use if you wanted to use that type of investment. All of this I could have gotten online for free. Nothing as to why to string those types of investments together...
Maybe my expectations are different than others, but that is what I was hoping for. Maybe another book for me?
