    "Misleading Title"

    CNN's Ali Velshi writes a book that provides an anecdotal, factually vague explanation of the current financial crisis, then proceeds to give advice that you can pick up from any stock broker out there, i.e. "diversify, diversify, diversify". Unfortunately, this is to be expected from a media pundit not paid to provide financial advice, but to entertain. There are better books out there, including Meltdown, that do a much better job of both explaining what happened and providing clues to how one should look at investing going forward.
