“[Mr. Spier] is worth listening to. A graduate of Oxford University and Harvard Business School, he runs the Aquamarine Fund ...that has beaten the S&P 500 by an average of 4.9 percentage points annually. He believes that most investors pay attention to the wrong things and allow their minds to get hijacked by bad ideas. Individual investors are constantly being exhorted to try beating Wall Street at its own game of trading like crazy to chase whatever is hot. But why should you bother trying to play a game that even most professional players can't win? Instead, take a page from Mr. Spier's book and play by your own rules. The faster Wall Street runs, the more you should slow down and step back from that madness.” ―Jason Zweig, The Wall Street Journal

Some positives about this book- The opening chapter is the best part of the book. It describes his time working in a dishonest Wall Street firm at the start of his career.
The author's observation on how corrosive and poisoness the Bloomberg terminal can be if used too frequently is also noteworthy. Those multiple screens with blinking lights and moving graphs and flashing numbers don't mean a thing if the user does not possess a skilled mind.
In conclusion I would like to state that I admire the author more then his book
