  1. Thanks for the overview Mike. I thought John Lee’s book was quite good; a bit lacking in detail but doused in very sensible basics. As you point out, the “ISA millionaire” thing is romantic, and might pull in the get-rich-quick investor, but on balance I think the world is better with John’s contribution than without.

      I totally agree, and I wish I was an ISA millionaire (I was paying more attention to my SIPP until recently). I just think that doing it all over again starting in 2016 would be a lot more difficult.

      I also think that people should try to master several approaches to investment, as they don’t all perform well all of the time. So even when someone is as successful as John with a single style, I prefer the pick ‘n’ mix perspective.

      I realise that everyone is different, and some styles suit some people better than others. But since 2008 I haven’t felt comfortable with a single approach.
