It was an eye-opening book and opened my eyes to the nuisances that come with risk-taking, and how one can incorporate it in not just financial securities, but life in general. It was an enjoyable, and easy read. The examples Gerd lays out to you are clear and numerous, which allows you to learn more from your reading sessions, as you can apply his principles to something more concrete in your everyday life.
