Some great ideas at a good price.
There's some good chapters here and I found it worth the $5 and it's a pretty easy listen. I can't say that I was blown away by it, but there's some good parts. I especially liked the chapter on why selling short is good. It's the first pro-short-selling discussion I've heard that wasn't a sales pitch and actually made a good argument for it. It also has a great section on how modern media reflects and influences stock trends.
