He also contradicts himself. I bought this based on his interview on one of the early morning news shows, and he specifically said to never invest on your own, to always get an adviser, because, hey, they're the experts and how could you possibly know how to invest. In the book he goes the complete opposite, making the case that financial planners are as good as flipping a coin, and they're probably unethical anyway.
His movie on intelligent design was excellent and still goes unanswered, but this book was not worth my time.
This book was actually an interesting book. I bought the book because it was written by Ben Stein. My first impressions of this book was a little disappointing because I thought it was just a remedial lesson on the do's and don'ts of typical investing. However, the investment advice was good. As the book went on, the book mentions how to build a bulletproof portfolio. The theory behind the bulletproof portfolio was pretty convincing even in this harsh time of beaten-up muni's but good time for stocks. The last part of the book gives advices on issues of retirement and wills. The book was written in a prose that Ben Stein would say.
If you're a pro investor, you could probably skip the first 3rd of the book. If you're a beginner investor, this book would probably be worth reading.
I certainly appreciate that 1) it uses 100 years of historical data to make the case, and 2) it includes the recent large-scale events which have significantly impacted the market.
I was disappointed that there was no mention of tithing, although contributions are mentioned towards the end of life. I think Stein is Jewish, and I thought the Judaeo-Christian perspective was that all creation came from God; therefore He is entitled to the first portion, not to what we have left over just before we die. Heck, what happens when you die? You render an accounting to Him of how you have fed the hungry, clothed the naked, etc.
Anyway, all in all it was a great book. I plan to purchase two more for my kids.
