To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The Joys of Compounding was fantastic: a broad wander through many topics I've been reading & learning about recently, but sufficiently deep that I gleaned new information & book recommendations from it.
The content of the book reads as follows, as an example: Lifelong passion is critical for happiness. People who nurture life long passions are most likely to be happy. Happy people are passionate. Passionate people also report that they are focussed. That'ss because Passionate people are focussed on things that bring happiness. So Focus is critical for passion. Therefore, happy people are focussed.
So on an so forth, it ambles along .
The author takes 4-5 jargon terms such as A B C D and strings a phrase connecting A and B, then B and C, then strinsg C and D, then string D to A. Then dumps them all down into one paragraph. .
It's a book that lacks momentum. It's a copy paste of quotes from munger, buffet and taleb. Insights that are worth a 100 words have been stretched to a 1000 or even 2000 words.
I really wanted to return it. . But I missed the return window.
Avoid wasting your money.
Read Saurabh Mukhejea and Monika halans books instead. Or watch free YouTube videos on Munger and Buffet.
The Joys of Compounding has become a personal top-5 book on the field of finance. Gautam intelligently intertwines and connects wide concepts from different fields so one can become a better imvestor. But also gives the recipee to be a better human being un a very inspirational way. I amb sure I will revisit this book in the future.
