"I am the head of a small but successful international funds management operation and I also teach a post grad course in Market and Risk Analysis. When I saw this title I was hopeful of learning something or at the very least being able to point my students to the book to explain basic concepts. Unfortunately I couldn't recommend this book to anyone. It has no insight into economics, financial systems or market cycles. It does have a whole lot of unsubstantiated opinion about the benefits of unregulated markets, most of it so simplistic that it's almost embarrassing. You also get a lot of folksy homilies that take the place of thought and analysis. And just to round things out the author promotes his prejudices as fact. Well to be fair, he does quote other people who share his prejudices, but none of them provide any substance to his point of view either."--Paul Zahara
