Read in October, 2011 — I own a copy

I found Malkiel's arguments convincing and often entertaining. They were convincing in large part because he takes time to consider opposing arguments and even gives them credit in a few cases. In addition, it helped that he examines how some of the attitudes and counter-arguments to his long-consistent suggestions have changed over time.

The original book was published decades ago, but there is so much about recent events woven throughout the 2011 edition that you wouldn't guess it from the text itself (except that Malkiel himself points it out).

I found it a little odd that he constantly referred to phone numbers that could be called first and only then would mention a website. But I suppose that may be appropriate for much of the target audience. At any rate, that quirk is just amusing.
