No representation intended. Since I posted that reply, I've seen many more recommendations for A Random Walk Down Wall Street.

>>True he likes index funds and writes about efficient markets, but he also invests in stocks. He offers a few ideas to help pick good ones. His views and reports of research will challenge many investors ideas on how the market works. But that might move them to refine their own thinking not adopt his.>>

How Foolish! The more I read about investing the more I'm learning about just how individualistic it is. I guess I'll have to move Malkiel a couple notches back up my reading list after all. ;-) Thanks for the reply.
