Excellent book

I am a reasonably knowledgeable person in finance.. but was blown away from this book. It really goes into details and shares the secrets to outperform the market. Will recommend to any serious investor who is ready to put in work to get great results.

Old content but still interesting

The book was published in the mid 90s and I guess put into audiobook not that long ago? It was good. Some interesting insights. Though examples etc were quite dated.

Misleading title

He specializes in alternative investments not typical investments that most people seek. Corny sense of humor and u won't become a genius reading this title. I actually think it's a super big waste of time and the guys a fake. Did not improve my investment skills.
