The author's single point is that only fools believe they can time the market or consistently predict which stocks will perform well. Experts who do are just lucky and are usually expert only at selling their services (as they hyperactively trade your portfolio to maximize fees). When you invest in index funds containing domestic and international stocks or bonds, your fees are low or nonexistent, your risk is low, and the historical earnings are far from shabby. Solin's message is helped immensely by the businesslike, easy-to-hear narration of Craig Wollman, Though Solin recognizes the skill of stock-picking geniuses like Peter Lynch and Warren Buffett, his argument is that most individual investing experts are not that smart and are not to be trusted if they say they are.
