Rational Expectations: Asset Allocation for Investing Adults (Investing for Adults Book 4)
Rational Expectations: Asset Allocation for Investing Adults (Investing for Adults Book 4)
Price: £6.72

4.0 out of 5 stars great stuff, 6 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyable, pragmatic. Can be a little US focused for international readers ( eg in the discussion of various retirement account structures and index / ETF products) but that is a marginal downside for a great book

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good read, 3 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I come to this a long time after it was written and I suspect that it has lost some of the impact it had when it was first published as people have become more familiar and maybe even accepting of the excesses it portrays. But it remains a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Consistent to the end, 30 July 2014

This review is from: The Quarry (Kindle Edition)
Funny and bleak. Hard to avoid interpreting the book in terms of Banks' own illness. Selfish thought is that it is a shame that there won't be any more from him.

3.0 out of 5 stars fine but..., 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite an engaging read but a very long way round to making a few simple if important points. And if baseball or poker don't excite you, you might find yourself skipping a few chapters


When the Money Runs Out

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear & convincing, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written and engaging. Very accessible and plausible on the interactions of economics, politics and the social contract. Unfortunately the least convincing elements were the recommendations to start dealing with the challenges we in the UK and the wider world face.
