Solid advice, but a little overwhelming

This book has so much good advice in it, but it is really too much information to readily apply. I have a significant amount of experience in finance (degree in finance and 10 years as a financial advisor) and still this book leaves me with a feeling of "Goodness! There's so much to learn, do, and execute that I'll never have the time!" The information is well thought out and accurate, but the book covers so much ground that it ends up feeling overwhelming.

Don't expect miracles

What did you like best about The Little Book That Saves Your Assets? What did you like least?

There was very little practical advice, but a lot of theoretical advice.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The little book of Main Street Money

Have you listened to any of Sean Pratt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Was The Little Book That Saves Your Assets worth the listening time?

Barely, but I don't regret listening to it.

Any additional comments?

If you want something you can directly apply, look somewhere else. If you are looking for all the financial education you can find, I think this is worth the read. The title suggests that it take the concepts of the wealthy and applies it to those of us with smaller portfolios. I found it does the former, but not the latter.

Too many meaningless metaphors.

Diversification has been described variously as "The only free lunch on Wall Street" and as "A hedge for ignorance". This book clearly takes the former view, and whilst I don't necessarily disagree, I'm afraid this book didn't impress me. The introduction by Jim Crammer didn't help to establish a tone of serious, sober long-term planning, but the bigger problem is that so much of the verbage here just isn't all that relevent. The book spends a great deal of its length on long convoluted metaphores that leave one no clearer on what to do at the end. Suppose I accept that asset allocation *is* a bit like a house, and choosing a manager is a bit like the furniture - how exactly does that help me? And when it's not throwing useless methaphores at you, it's blinding you with pearls of wisdom like "Uncle Frank says - know what kind of person you are". Fine, but what exactly should be the allocation of bond vs equities vs metals Mr Darst? Of course Mr Darst might reply - "You have to figure it out for yourself based on the circumstances ya dummy". But I can't help feeling that message could have been delivered a very great deal more breifly, and without so much day-dreaming. There are several good pieces of advice in here - firstly diversification is *not* just going long ten different equities in the same sector. Second, "you are less rational than you think you are": and "consider your time horizon". There - I've just saved you the price of the book. Sean Pratt's narration will be familiar to anyone familiar with the "Little Books" series, and you'll have already decided if you like it or not. I find it perfectly acceptable.
