    Sounds like this guy wrote this book while watching television and labeled his points with the thesis of the movies


    Has Against the Herd: 6 Contrarian Investment Strategies You Should Follow turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    What didn’t you like about Ross Douglas’s performance?

    Too fast and just didnt seem to fit with the context


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
    Its seems that if a person has been in this industry as long as he claims he would be able to provide more useful information.
    Gold Bubble? “REALLY” Gold has been going vertical since the year 2000 and has had a +14% increase from it yearly average price since then.
    Dont buy stocks? “REALLY” The Dow has returned +30% since 2000
    I am sure you will never get that from your beloved bonds
    Many other examples but wow I wonder what this guys portfolio looks like!
