Disappointing and repeats the same obvious points.

Talks about market cycles but lacks detail in how to spot where exactly we are in one!

Few good points but repetitive

This conflicts most other investing advice that you can’t time the market. So I’m actually a bit more confused after reading this book. A good different perspective.
