Sorry, old thread resurrection.
My thoughts are along the same lines as yours. I enjoyed Failsafe Investing by Harry and agree with most of his principles, but I couldn't quite handle the 25% gold thing either. I'm roughly 60% stocks 25% cash, 15% gold.
Sad to see Harry go, he really challenged me to think about long held beliefs.
