But the prospect of reading 130 pages of small print stopped him cold. Instead, he threw away the prospectus and relied on his financial adviser to explain the offering to him. If you are one of the many people who are averse to reading prospectuses, let me explain something: Prospectuses are like kung fu. They teach you self-defense.
