Okay, so on page one of Chapter 1, we have ... a concise summary of evolution (education)for use in defining "our" terms on page two (good debate and discussion technique). Next, we wrap this up into a tight metaphor regarding the purpose of the chapter as a whole, and I quote Aristotle (in Poetics), "...the greatest thing by far is to be the master of metaphor."

This is what Jaffe calls "overwritten to cover a lack of substance."

Rubbish.

I think Jaffe has spent so much time reading the garbage that floods the business and investment section of the bookstore that he doesn't recognize good writing when he sees it. Poor guy, that is if he actually read the book in the first place.

It's a good read, and it has a clearly presented investment philosophy. It was worth all $15.49. (Being a Fool, I know you didn't expect me to pay full price!)

Fool on (and write some more),
