In fact, I recommend that you scan the written form of this book first so you know what you'll be listening to. I read a lot of investing books by choice and thought I'd try an audiobook for a change. I decided to start first with what appeared to be a more general investing book. Unfortunately, I chose this one and was very disappointed. Among other things, I feel that Solin's portfolio diversification and allocation recommendations are what you would find going directly to Fidelity's and Vanguard's websites. He also has tunnelvision and a real gripe about investment advisors. I would have no problem with that if he had devoted only one or two chapters on the subject. Well, it permeates his entire book. I'm going to listen to this again just to count how many times he says 'hyperactive brokers,' 'smart' and 'dumb.' Indexers will be elated --they are 'smart.' Self-directed individual investors like me will be devastated to find that we don't exist. We're not even 'dumb' --we simply don't exist in Solin's world.Was this review helpful?
