I believe individuals who are invested in equities will benefit from reading or listening to this work. This book includes useful information on investing strategies that one might want to consider. He also presents some interesting information that runs counter to common beliefs held buy many investors. For example, which would you have chosen in the early 1990's: To invest in China or in Brazil? Brazilian stocks did far better although the economy there grew very slowly during the study period. Stocks in China did not do so well despite a torrid economic growth rate. Jeremy Siegel has conducted extensive new research since his last book, "Stocks for the Long Run" (1994). As a result, he has changed some of his recommendations and strategies. My only negative comment is that he perhaps spends a bit too much time on some of the negative things that were said about him during the peak of the bubble. He questioned some of the ridiculous valuations of Internet stocks and received alot of hate mail as a result. Of course, history proved him right and I'm sure he enjoyed including his "I told you so" comments in the book.
Overall a worthwhile book. I recommend this, along with Peter Lynch's "One up on Wall Street".

This is an outstanding and thoroughly researched audiobook that provides a roadmap for making long term investment decisions and the rationale for why those decisions are best. Siegel clearly knows his stuff and has great credentials. This should be required listening for anyone managing money for the long haul.
