I liked this book. Very practical guide to options. Does a decent job of explaining the risks.
Don't jump into options if you are a gambler. I think options can be a good addition to your portfolio.
The book mainly talks about why we don't notice with very little of the book telling you how to notice. I'd still recommend the book, but basically the book tell you what not to do to miss something. This is hard, but worth reading and practicing.
If you work somewhere where you work or drive innovation, I would recommend reading this book. It has some interesting perspectives on when and what types of innovation are successful. It may taking some thought to apply this to your situation, but read it and see what you learn.
The book explains how you mind tricks you and what you need to do to be organized. With this information I've been able to more effectively use organizational systems I was already familiar with and adapt them to my own traits.
The closest book I've read was "Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills", but this focuses more on the effect of some of the same issues with thinking on science.
When the author talks about how highly organized people organize their mail.
I have been able to organize my email more effectively using the principles in this book.
I would recommend anyone who's job revolves around email to read this book and most others.
Nothing really useful. I'm not talking about the subject just the book.
Leaves out critical information you need to execute the method.
Detailed textbook like book on distressed investing.
College lecture like
Professional distressed investing.
Great book, love the perspective.
Very practical guide to property management.
No, take you time to understand this book.
The first few chapters give the best advice. Many chapters are about money management, which as the treasurer dealing with a property manager I dealt with much of that. Your experience therefore will probably vary.
The author spent a large amount of time citing facts, but not enough time convincing me that actually prove the hypothesis. I felt like I was being pelted with facts.
The actual story was only a small part of the book.
Maybe, I felt the voice was chosen to give credibility to the story. If anything, to me it was a distraction.
Don't waste your time with this book. If you do, read the last few chapters where he state his conclusion, before you read the beginning chapters where he is trying to prove it.
There was very little practical advice, but a lot of theoretical advice.
The little book of Main Street Money
Barely, but I don't regret listening to it.
If you want something you can directly apply, look somewhere else. If you are looking for all the financial education you can find, I think this is worth the read. The title suggests that it take the concepts of the wealthy and applies it to those of us with smaller portfolios. I found it does the former, but not the latter.
A lot of good advise packed into a small book.
The book was somewhat inconsistent. Claiming at points that investors were rational and irrational with no explanation.
Read more than this book. It has good advise, but I think of it as a starting point.
