Thanks! To clarify my initial post, what I'm trying to do in part is to keep my investment knowledge itself deliberately diversified. That means learning about ways to invest which lie outside the style I'll develop. After all, my aim as an investor should be to make money, not to uphold a particular style. I'm convinced that unless Congress finds a way to enforce a ban on nucleosynthesis, the world will always be generating wealth one way or another. My task is to get in on those ways which work.

So for example, I'm not really sure if there is a good way to make money with bonds right now (am I correct?). But those circumstances might change in the future. Therefore, maybe I should read an excellent book on bonds, just so I acquire the knowledge BEFORE I need it, not AFTER. It also seems to me that the various areas of investing are just aspects of one art. So that even if one wants to be a value investor, one might do well to learn about reading charts like a trader, so that one can refine one's timing a bit.
