    " This is a book on investing. But look a little harder, it's a book about the fallacies, weaknesses, and overconfidence of humans. It's actually a bit of a horror book to see how wrong and short-sighted we are. "

    " Decent book. Since I'm already familiar with much of the content of the book however, I found that there wasn't really anything in here that stood out in my mind as new or innovative. "
