I have read Rob Carrick's investment articles in the Globe & Mail for a long time now and this book is a concise summary of his best advice. He is an advocate for any investor, has no investment firm bias and will save you money!
No nonsense, clear explanations of the market....boy, does he "un-muddy" the water!

Rob Carrick is a prolific writer, of books as well as journalism, about personal finances, real estate, etc. His style and manner of conveying information are marvels of clarity. Some have criticised his background of studies in journalism, rather than in business, but perhaps it is his journalistic orientation that helps him to avoid the conformist mindset, and rigidly unworkable and outdated theories behind them, of Bay Street and of Wall Street.

One probably should seek out that more purely professional advice on finance and balance it with what hard-hitting, non-conforming (to the business elties) Carrick has to say about the same matters despite the mindset of the business community, which often is far from having the average individual's interests uppermost in mind, even in Canada, where regulation protects the public's interest, and most certainly does not so regard the public with any kindesss in that cynically greed- and corruption-beset, callously unregulated (or very insufficiently regulated) banana republic, the U. S. of A., or in the U.K.
