I know everyone disagreed with me last time this came up but why is reading vol 1 + 2 a bad thing or something that is so un-doable? I did it and I am sure a lot of other did as well (even though I was there for a lot of vol 1). Some people acted like it was impossible. If you are passionate about anything dont you do your research? For example you dont start trading stocks and just ask people what stocks they are buying and go with it..
