I have an anti-recommendation, this is a book to skip.It is "A Remarkable Medicine Has Been Overlooked" by Jack Dreyfus.He is the Dreyfus that founded the Dreyfus Fund. (Remember the lioncoming out of the subway commercial? That one.) The problem is thatthe book has only about 20 pages on financial stuff. The rest of thebook is his childhood and a lot of stuff on Dilantin.The book is not well written. I can't decide if it was incompetentlyedited, or was not edited. As an example he refers to the author "Graham Dodd" rather than the Graham and Dodd we are familar with.The Dilantin stuff seems to verge on crackpottery to me. It certainlyhas its uses as an anti-seisure drug, but I doubt it is the wonderdrug he makes it out to be. The wikipedia article on it underthe generic name of phenytoin mentions Dreyfus and that his theoriesare not widely held.Skip this one and read "The Little Book Of Value Investing" by Chris Browne.Chris - wants those minutes of my life I spent on this book back
