5.0 out of 5 stars Logical breakdown of common investing advice
Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2021
I read this on my iPhone on the Kindle App. I'm including a couple of screenshots to show how the formatting lines up for that device (I actually like how it looks, and I don't particularly like reading on my phone).

The entirety of my (slim) investing knowledge comes from listening to Dave Ramsey's podcast and reading some of his books (and books from people on his team). I love what they have to say and it has always made sense to me. However, in one chapter Spicer completely breaks that thinking down bit by bit, giving examples along the way. The conversationalist tone of his writing and simple formatting of his examples make the logic easy to follow, even if you don't consider yourself a math person.

I think this is a book everyone needs to get their hands on (or get the eBook).
