Brennan's book

This was a disappointment. First, I overlooked the fact that the book was actually WRITTEN in 2002 (recorded in 2007)....that makes it rather outdated. Second, considering the size of the book (length) and the cost of it, one would think that it would have a little more substance. Yet it did not. It might be good for the college student or teenager who needs a very long lecture in the importance of saving money....but it's not for the person looking for information on investing.
