The Dangers of Ordering Books Online

One Up on Wall StreetSome time ago I placed an order at my local book supplier for Peter Lynch’s One Up on Wall Street. Since it had pretty good reviews on Amazon and it was also on Jim Puplava’s recommended reading list, I thought it was a sure bet. Every now and then, I order a book that has relatively good reviews but in the end turns out to be a waste of time and money. Since this book was so high in almost every list, I didn’t have doubts about it. Boy, how wrong I was. The book came in today, everything looked fine until I opened the package and discovered that the book was made for little kids, not adults – it was smaller than a pack of cigarettes. What kind of a cruel joke is this? An investment book that you can read in five minutes? What the f***? This isn’t even funny.
