Ok, you know that I'm not so interested in this topic. Still, I enjoyed this book immensely. Malkiel is easily the wittiest man on earth I have ever read.
For ones who are interested in the subject, this is absolutely a fun and useful read at the same time. I never know finance can be taught so clearly, straightforward and still so engaging. I thought the book would lose its charm after a while (when the author starts talking some technical things), but it does not. Ok, after finishing it, I admit that it does, but not considerably.
The first half talks a bit on history, then some theories of investing, which I find most important for beginners in the field and also the most amusing part. The other less-interesting half is more about investing advice, which I am not so fond of, but I read anyway for they are useful (even though I have no serious intention of making money at all). Basically, Malkiel recommends the "Guide to get rich slowly (but surely)". And after reading it, I'm kinda certain that I'm not born for this. Still, observing only is incredibly fun.
