In 2011, a 26-year-old libertarian programmer named Ross Ulbricht launched the ultimate free market: the Silk Road, a clandestine website hosted on the Dark Web where anyone could trade anything - drugs, hacking software, forged passports, counterfeit cash, poisons - free of the government's watchful eye. It wasn't long before the media got wind of the new website where anyone - not just teenagers and weed dealers but terrorists and black hat hackers - could buy and sell contraband detection-free.

Extremely well researched, written and delivered. Nick is a refreshing craftsman.

The details of accuracy and truth are magnetic inertia.

Mitza Maric has always been a little different from other girls. Most 20-year-olds are wives by now, not studying physics at an elite Zurich university with only male students trying to outdo her clever calculations. But Mitza is smart enough to know that for her, math is an easier path than marriage. And then fellow student Albert Einstein takes an interest in her, and the world turns sideways. Theirs becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage.

At the age of 31, Betty Eadie died after routine surgery. The events that followed can only be described as the most profound and extensive near-death experience ever recorded. During the time she was clinically dead, Betty was given knowledge of the afterlife that would make even the greatest skeptic think twice. As she traveled through the spiritual realm, she learned more about the laws and history of the universe than perhaps anyone before her.

What did you love best about The Disciplined Investor?

The unique way it insures understanding of each subject.

What other book might you compare The Disciplined Investor to and why?

I can not think of another book that presents as nicely as this one.

What about Andrew Horowitz’s performance did you like?

Yes he performs like the lovable social animal he is.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think, the sharing points of risk associated with each subject are quite valuable. Horowitz creates a solid footing for laymen or seasoned investors to build on.

Any additional comments?

I found joy in new discovery, but more importantly I discovered what I did'nt know that I did'nt know.
