The Rogue Investor ebook is the only
information on investing I've ever found that was useful and understandable. I
enjoyed its format and its brevity. I'm not sure what improvements there would
be to make on the book. It is something everyone should read whether or not
they are interested in serious investing. Thank you very much!

I wanted to let you know that I've spent the last several
hours reading [your book] and I'm having a great time with it. It's
a terrific read and you should be complimented with the care and
detail you've put into it.
Thank you very much,
