Okay. I am not an alcoholic in the sense that I get drunk every night nor do I pass-out or lose my memory after drinking. I do have a drink after work and I enjoy getting together with friends and tying one on - consuming a lot in a short period but not to the point of passing out. (I can "handle" my alcohol - based on years of experience :))

After listening to this book (twice) I have realised that I am fooling myself - I do have an addiction. I have since changed my perspective on alcohol and have EASILY (without using will-power) reduced my consumption. The jury is still out if I will quit but I am already feeling the results of consuming less "poison". Thank you Annie G. for sharing your story and insights.

Never to late...

I wish I had read this book 10 years ago. This book has changed by perspective on long-term investing and while I still enjoy "trading" I realize that long term steady gains require a simple buy and hold philosophy - and is probably my best strategy for Retirement fund. Picking individual stocks to do this with is not easy (i.e. GE). So the concept of buying the "Market" makes sense, and at the same time avoiding high fees associated with Mutual Funds is a no-brainer. RIP John C. Bogle and Thank you.
