Now I am not going to say that the book is for everyone. It is not. The author (James Grant) is idiosyncratic: he is a fan of returning to the gold standard and that permeates through his writings. But he is one of the most insightful analysts/journalists out there and his writing contains pearls of wisdom, mixed with economic/business history and his analysis is usually spot-on.
What this book does is provide a reader with a succinct analysis over many years of bunglings by numerous luminaries. It provides to readers that having clarity of thought and not being wrapped up in panics/manias, should lead to persistently above-market returns.
I really liked the author's description of the financial instruments, especially CDS derivatives. Even if you are not a financial expert, you should be able to understand it because the author has described it in simple terms. Although there is so much evidence supporting the idea that Mr. Market miscalculates, I am amazed at how many institutional investors believe in efficient market theory and have managed their investments through indexing.
