Ray Dalio

Do you guys even take what he says serious anymore? Out of all his predictions over the last two years I don't recall any of them coming to fruition. Does anyone have a different take on that?

Unpopular opinion here, but I hated "Principles". I didn't think it was very useful or entertaining. Other investing books are MUCH better for developing an investor mindset (countless ones - I'll leave the lists to people like thebrofessor ) and other biographies are much more inspiring.
