5.0 out of 5 stars Ouch, this is so good it hurts!, 22 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Ouch!: Ignorance is Bliss, Except when It Hurts- What You Don't Know About Money and Why It Matters (More Than You Think) (Paperback)
On a whim I picked up a copy this afternoon, which I have just finished in a single sitting. I have just solved my Xmas present problem! I will be going back for more copies. What a really excellent job this is. I have never been a finance guy but I do have an unhealthy obsession with monetary history (and central banking!!) and am an active private investor. I have tried many times, and failed, to make coherent to my friends some of the complex ideas in the book.

So I was a bit cynical at first but this reads like a clear and concise distillation of every quality finance book I have read plus quite a few more. There are so many really important truths about investing, behavioural traits and monetary history that it should be overwhelming. But it is not. Read it now!

Ouch!, so good it hurts......
