    I consider myself a relative beginner with respect to mutual funds, yet I already know more about them than this short, vapid and irrelevant book could tell me. The obvious point first: as another reviewer has already commented, the second half of the book has nothing to do whatever with mutual funds. It addresses itself instead to procrastination in the tradition of inspirational self-help business literature, à la Dale Carnegie or Paul Getty. This second section, of nineteen unnumbered pages in large print of unidiomatic English, comprises more than half of a book that is slender to begin with. As for that part of the book you may think you were purchasing for insights into intelligent ways to invest in mutual funds, let me offer a sample, on bonds and interest rates: “Funds that hold bonds with longer maturities are exposed to greater interest rate risk. With average maturities of bonds from the portfolio used another indicator and that the average rate of interest. This indicator points to a few things. First, higher interest rates mean lower interest rate. Second, if the high interest rates associated with short maturities, the interest sensitivity and the risk is minimal, and vice versa. Third, the high rate of interest on bonds also leads fund in danger when market interest rates fall significantly, the issuer revokes bond.” Had enough? I’m a former copyeditor, and I’ve proofread my transcription of this passage twice.

    James Chen may conceivably be able to explain in person the workings of mutual funds so that no question a listener had would go unanswered. But what he offers in print is something else entirely. I can’t escape the impression that this book was dictated and transcribed verbatim and published without ever having passed under the eyes of a copyeditor. Even had it been copyedited, you’d already have to understand, say, what bonds are and how the bond market functions even to guess at what Chen may be getting at.

    I can only wonder where all those five-star reviews are coming from, and why.

    Seems badly translated into English, March 8, 2015

    From the very first paragraph, the syntax is awkward and some of the sentences make no sense. Seems to have been translated into English by someone who doesn’t speak English. I didn’t see much about how to invest wisely. The book was mostly a description of the different types of mutual funds. If you wade through the convoluted phrasing you might learn something about mutuals and therefore be a wiser investor, but in my opinion it’s not worth the effort. Also FYI, the second half of the book is a completely different article about procrastination, from the same publisher.
