"Any opportunity to learn more from such people is an opportunity that should not be missed." (Roy R. Neuberger, Neuberger Berman, Inc.)

useless dribble

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

It's designed for investing novices and marketed as containing wisdom from great investors. People familiar with the topic will be disappointed with the selection of writings as most are either too superficial or not the best published for that author.

What was most disappointing about Peter Krass’s story?

The assumption that a wealthy man was a wise man. Several of the authors quoted herein made a fortune at one point of their lives using what they preached, but then died penniless, and in debt, or killed themselves when their trading didn't work out. All of which isn't investing wisdom. There were a few tidbits of information worthwhile, but the book lacks a theme, there seemed to be no thought in which quoted papers to add to it, with the intention of just representing as many wealthy men as possible.

Would you be willing to try another one of Stuart Langton’s performances?

yes

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.
