David in post 17: << If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to hear 2-3 sentences from you as to why this book was your favorite. That helps us figure out what we did right, so that we can aim to do even more right in future. >>

I think your writing style has matured considerably, and as a result each of your books has been more enjoyable than the last.

The Motley Fool Investment Guide and You Have More Than You Think were educating and entertaining, but Rule Breakers, Rule Makers is replete with more philosophy and style than the first two books.

Okay, so some of the images are kind of, shall we say, indulgent ("Pfizer's business is growing like a weed, all over the planet"; "Columbus died a Tweener"). But I enjoyed it that way.

It's hard to believe that at the time of writing Amazon was a $6 billion company. That seems so far away in time (in the past, and possibly in the future) from the $22 billion behemoth Amazon has now become.

The only thing I might have liked is for a little more discussion of Tweeners. Ah, but since Tweeners didn't make it into the title, I guess it wouldn't have been worthwhile to give them too much real estate. Plus it leaves room for a sequel... the fourth book in the Motley Fool trilogy...

Anyway, thank you for writing the book, and I will tell my 117 closest friends to buy it, too.

Meanwhile, in the Kua`aina Partners investment club, some friends I met on these Motley Fool message boards and I are applying the RBRM philosophies to fuel our selections for an alternative Rule Breaker portfolio and an alternative Rule Maker portfolio (actually, our Rule Maker port is allowed to have Tweeners, too).
