The problem with many investing books that are written is this: They are U.S. centric. And this is a problem when it comes to the practical application step as they will be confined to the U.S. examples. Good for those living in the U.S. but not so good basically for the rest of the world.
This is fortunately not the case with this book. The book gives examples of how you can apply the strategy, index investing, not only in Singapore but also in Canada and Australia. U.S. citizens should not feel excluded as you have a section in there as well.
