This is an excellent book for anybody who want to learn about ETFs. It is very well written and the firstly type of this book for the UK consumer. At last we have somebody who offers a balanced view on synthetic ETFs which are far more efficient in terms of tracking error with no more (or even far less) counterparty risk than physical ETFs which engage in stock lending.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By E. Kraev on 26 Feb. 2015

Loved this book. In my opinion, most non-full-time investors should have the bulk of their assets in ETFs, and this book gives one all the information needed for that, and then some. The list of 25 must-know ETF types at the end, with specific ETFs discussed for each, is worth its weight in gold.
My only complaint is that the book is now several years out of date, which matters a lot for such a fast-developing area. The book would be perfect if that list of ETFs at the end had a companion website that kept the ETF lists and price series up to date - or at least had a new edition to bring its data up to today.
