Method

methodStripping away the fluff, the book has 47 chapters of content – which I’ll translate into as many blog posts as needed.

If there’s no UK-specific translation required, then I’ll just not post about it.

Just want the big picture? Skip to the summary.

Of course, I’m assuming that either you’re as dumb or as clever as me – feel as insulted or complimented as you deem appropriate.  In other words, if I don’t understand something, I’ll dig deeper until I do.  If I think it’s obvious I’ll not dig at all.

Take heart! I’m not (generally) that dumb, but also, I am not at all knowledgable about making investments.  If I don’t understand stuff, it’s probably worth me posting about it. If something’s obvious to me, then you’ll probably think so too.

If a chapter title is greyed out, it’s because I think the chapter is self-explanatory.
