    Excellent Investment Blueprint, February 10, 2013
    By 
    Andrew Gurman (New York, NY USA) –

    This review is from: All About Asset Allocation, Second Edition (Paperback)
    I found this book to be exceptionally useful in developing a long-term investment plan. Ferri makes excellent use of academic findings and statistical data to support the use of various asset allocation strategies. He provides a fabulous investment blueprint along with specific investment options for the layperson to structure an investment portfolio. Also, he lays out his points in a concise and compelling way.

    I have now read John Bogle’s “Common Sense on Mutual Funds,” Burton Malkiel’s “A Random Walk Down Wall Street,” and this book. They each naturally have different emphases and taken as a whole are quite helpful. I found this book by Ferri to be the most useful in actually structuring a specific investment plan, and I agree with his well-reasoned critique of Bogle, who de-emphasizes international investing to too large an extent. (I also commend Ferri for what he has done with his investment company, which charges a far lower rate than I had thought existed in the financial advisor arena – merely .25% versus the commonly charged 1%.)

    A few negatives with the book, however, and as noted by some other reviewers (including AmazonGuy), are that it is rife with typos and grammatical mistakes; and it is repetitive, although that can be helpful for people looking only to read specific chapters. Nevertheless, the substance of the book is fabulous, and I will be applying Ferri’s teachings as I construct my investment portfolio.

    Great information but sloppy, August 2, 2011

    This review is from: All About Asset Allocation, Second Edition (Paperback)
    This is a great book for someone looking to assemble their portfolio and not only successfully diversify it, but understand WHY diversification among asset classes works to reduce risk and increase returns.

    My only real complaint is that it’s sloppy – thus the three stars. I almost had to put the book down because I found so many spelling and grammatical errors in the first chapter. It was very distracting to me.

    One has to wonder if this book was even proofread. (I think one or two errors in an entire volume is somewhat acceptable, but not the level of errors seen here.) I asked myself “Can I take the advice of such a careless author?” But in the end I think the concepts are mostly sound and it’s a helpful intro.

    But please, do a revision and fix all the errors!

    Great Guide, May 27, 2011

    This review is from: All About Asset Allocation, Second Edition (Paperback)
    I just finished the outstanding book, All About Asset Allocation, by Richard Ferri. While I am well versed on the topic, I still learned quite a bit as Ferri goes went into detail on every facet of the practice. The only negative was that there seemed to be a lot of repetition, but given how important this topic is, a little repetition is a good thing. Ferri excelled in providing plenty of low-cost providers of index funds to be used in your asset allocation plan, but fell short of suggesting many ETFs as the selection at the time of publication was not as extensive as it is now, 2006 (first edition).

    If you want a step-by-step manual on proper asset allocation, this is your guide. Each chapter guides you along as you build fund by fund until you have a portfolio of up to 12 different asset classes by the end of the book. There are plenty of examples on where the research originated from (Fama and French, Markowitz, and more) and makes for an enjoyable and quick read. His other books are just as helpful.
