    I learned a lot

    Since the book can be used as a reference, it is very repetitive, which I found to help remember things that I read in previous chapters. I highly suggest reading it if you know nothing about stocks like I did before I read this book.

    Very disappointing

    I found this book to be poorly written, poorly organized and lacking expert authority. I have read and enjoyed numerous financial and investing books but not this one. The space devoted to individual stocks was particularly weak and uninspiring. I felt more confused when I finished than I did in the beginning.
