Top critical review

The author has much to say about his life and investment philosophy. Unfortunately I never found the book come to life. In part it may have been Mr Dalio’s writing style, which I found dull. But mainly there was simply too much of it ! The result is that, for this reader at least, it was difficult to get anything really useful to stick in the memory bank. I also found many of his principles to be of too general a nature to be of much use.
There are more inspiring business biographies out there and there are better investment philosophy books too. This book tries to do both but achieves neither, IMO.
