This book would have been appropriate if it was published in 1930. Most of us have Internet access and online trading accounts which allows us to react instantly to bad news about our stocks / options / commodities / Forex investments. After the tech bubble burst and the 2009 financial meltdown, most of us understand that there is risk with any investment. The investor today is educated, knowledgable, sophisticated, Internet connected, tech-savvy and does not have the same wholly-dependent-on-your-broker, fear-of-everything mentality as the investor of 1930. Most of us KNOW there is risk, and we WANT those risks and their rewards. We sleep well by MANAGING the risks, NOT AVOIDING them. Most of us use Microsoft Excel with web queries to track our investments with the latest prices from Internet investment sites, alert us when they hit certain price / volume points. I set my data refresh rate to 10 minutes, so, within 10 minutes I know about all the price and volume changes of all my investments as well as things on my watch lists. Because of security regulations, brokers can no longer call their big clients first with important news, we all get it at the same time, it is a level playing field. The author seems to be telling us to avoid everything just so we can sleep easy. Most of us can sleep VERY easily if we know what the news and most recent prices are, and that we can react instantly to that news good or bad.

The author starts chapter 16 by expressing his frustration with Chinese restaurants, to quote him "They may be delicious, but I tend to avoid them for fear I'll end up with something I consider inedible.
