      "Great for some, but not for all"

      My rating of 4/5 is based on the intent of the book. While I do agree with Jeffry, a previous reviewer, in that I did not learn anything.

      However, the book is clearly written for those will little or no experience with investing. The book provides tons of good information and little nuggets for thought.

      The book presents the information in simple terms and is (I assume) easy for new investors to understand. This is the basis for my 4/5 stars.

      If you have no investing experience or if you are an current but not well versed in investing then the book is a great tool for you.

      If you are already an intermediate investor the book will probably serve well as a check and balance to help you keep yourself on track.

      If you are an expert investor, the book is not for you as you will learn little or nothing.

      "Who is this book written for?"

      Not sure who the audience for this book is supposed to be, but with sage wisdom like "just because you like Japanese food does not mean you should open a sushi restaurant", I'm not any more enlightened than when I started the book.
