I read a book entitled "latticework" by the same author and I ordered this title thinking it would be a continuation of the subject. Unfortunately it is the same book with the different title. I am a little ticked because it was not obvious when I submitted my order

Yes, it's a book worth reading for it's liberal arts ideas and a need for well rounded education which has gone out of style. Funding for the liberal arts university courses is clearly declining in my area.

However, for investors, your better advice would be read "Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

This extremely well researched and written book argues for a liberal education - that is a process of continual learning in different fields/areas in order to improve understanding of how the world works. In relation to investing this means that just doing a finance or economics degree is not enough (although obviously helpful) and that knowing something from areas such as Psychology, Philosophy, biology, history will help you improve your performance.
As well as about being about stock market investing, the book makes a strong case for a more liberal education at University, not only to improve students'job prospects, but also the way they will live their lives (and consequently affect others).
Read it.
