    This book is all about asset allocation, a topic I've been great

    This book is all about asset allocation, a topic I've been greatly interested in for at least 10 years. During that period I've read many books on the subject and found that they are in remarkable agreement on what makes sense for most ordinary investors: Diversify, use low cost index funds and ETFs, rebalance as needed, and keep a long-term perspective. This book is not in direct conflict with those other books, but is by a long margin the least useful. Darst is highly philosophical and gives no guidance that can easily be converted to specific actions. For the most part he describes what an investor should do, but not how he should do it. And in cases where he does describe the how, the prospective investor would have to set aside probably months of full-time effort to accomplish it. For the reader seeking useful advice on asset allocation, any of the following books are far superior: Index Funds, by Mark Hebner; The Lies About Money, by Ric Edelman; TheSmartest Portfolio You'll Ever Own, by Daniel Solin. Don't waste your money on this one.
