This is the only book that I found easily about Exchange-Traded Funds at my local bookstore, so I bought it, even though it was published in 2007. Interesting to read an investing book written prior to the big crash of 2008... I hope there is a newer edition of this book out now, as there are so many more ETF's than there were in 07.

Pretty good, although frustratingly US centric. Would have preferred less information on specific funds and information that quickly goes out of date, and a better explanation of how you can find out correlation between different funds/indexes and more detail on asset allocation.

Enlightening. Also in response to other reviews' main gripe, this book has been updated around 2011- 2012.
