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.

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My only complaint is that the book is now several years out of date, which matters a lot for such a fast-developing area.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.

In this fantastic book, Stevenson completely demystifies the world of passive investing (i.e. not trying speculate to beat the stock market) using ETFs and index tracker funds, including any pitfalls and tax considerations associated with them. However the book is quite a challenging and lengthy read as it is jam packed with technical information, research and financial jargon that may easily bog down someone new to all of this. Nonetheless, readers who prefer to skip the lengthy academic and technical aspects of the book will find the final chapters on Master Portfolios and Essential 25 funds extremely useful to get yourself started. Unless you have a photographic memory, you may find yourself frequently using the book's well organised index to quickly zero into a topic you want to know more about! All in all, this book is a pure gem for any investor.
