  1. Harriman's new Book of Investing Rules.I only just got to see the full list of other writers. There is one (very obviously NOT you) who I find so distasteful and foolish had I known of his contribution I would not have written my chapter. I don't know of all the other writers or their careers but the one I refer to is a salesman of the worst order. Pity. A mistake in my view b Harriman.
