First off, I just want to thank the hundreds of people, many of whom are also in the wealth management biz, who have emailed me to tell me how much they’re enjoying the book. When I get emails like these from my colleagues, my eyes well up with tears, swear to god…
Just wanted to say that I bought the book yesterday, via digital download, and it is unreal. I am 100 pages in and love it. I have been in the business for 12 years and independent for 11 of those years with 12 advisors under my OSJ. At times I felt that you took the words out of my mouth and utilized some of the same sentiments that I have seen and feel about our business. Can’t wait to finish the book. I am actually going to buy the hard copy so I can keep in my must read library along with, “Liar’s Poker”, “Predator’s Ball” and other Wall Street classics.
Job well done!

LOVE getting notes like that!
Anyway, my friend Meb Faber, author of the seminal book The Ivy Portfolio and the blog World Beta, shot me an email the other day asking me why I don’t have many reviews at Amazon. I didn’t have any answer. Meb schooled me on how important it is to ask people, if they liked the book, to post a review at Amazon. The more reviews the more visible the book becomes, I’m told. And visibility is good for a book, no?
So anyway, if you liked it and you want to make sure more people read it, the best way to show your love is a book review. And if you’re too busy, believe me, I understand that too, just a thought.
Thanks again to everyone who’s read it and reached out, I am completely overcome with gratitude.
