This would ne a great text book for a graduate school. If you don't have a degree in finance and money markets (I do) then this book is going to be a difficult read. But if you want to know all about the differing types of etf's then this is your book. How useful that information is to the average investor is questionable. But it would certainly be useful to asset managers with large portfolio's.
Very good explanation of ETFs and the how to construct a diversified ETF portfolio to manage risk. Includes explanations regarding the weighting of stocks in an ETF, and how weighting affects overall ETF performance. Also has some great explanations regarding specific ETFs that help you get started (or help re-balance an existing ETF portfolio with new ETFs) to manage risk and return more effectively. Thanks to the author for his years of experience and wisdom.
