Mr. Witt is very enthusiastic about the amount of money you can make using Wade Cook's rolling stock method! At one point he even says flat out that you can make a million dollars in 3.5 years with it! This is true, if you make a 20% return each month, but the problem with this book is that it treats that sort of return as a given. Witt made it seem very easy to make a killing, and I spent a few days dreaming what I would do with all that money! The more I thought about it, though, the more questions cropped up. Several of these, I imagine, you could get answers to at one of Wade Cook's seminars, and Witt seems more to want to whet your appetite for those instead of answering questions himself. In the final analysis, though, this is a viable strategy even if it is a lot more risky than he makes it seem. People can & do make big bucks with it, with a lot of work. Even though Witt focuses mainly on the bright side, you will come away from the book with the concept firmly in grasp.

Wade Cook runs seminars, priced around $3,500, that explain his strategies for investing, with emphasis on writing covered calls. Much of the same information is available in his book, The Wall Street Money Machine. Don't be fooled by Wade Cook's book. I read it, did some studies of covered calls. Most cheap covered calls are written on stocks that are in the process of declining in price. According to postings in Dejanews, some people admit to having lost a bundle following Wade Cook's trading programs. When I read his book, some of it seemed too good to be true. And, as the old axiom says, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is." I had a conversation with a commodity trader several years ago. He told me that he was continually amazed at people who had demonstrated expertise in their respective fields, and were somewhat successful at their work. Then, they would read a book about commodity trading and think that they could start making a living at it. Basically, the same principle applies to trading stock options. Go slow, crawl before you walk, walk before you run. To use a baseball analogy, go for base hits first. The triples and home runs will come with practice.

If you're brand new to trading and options, then this book may be a below average introduction. I've traded for years, and am sending this book back. The author speaks of all of the advantantages of high risk option & stock trades, but doesn't adequately note the risk or the steps to get out of a bad position. If all trades were sure things, you wouldn't need a book. Read "Trading For a Living" by Elder if you want to learn something, or something by Pring or Murphy about technical analysis.

My book will appeal to investors who are concerned that the investment markets may not rise forever. Corrections and even bear markets are an inevitable and even normal part of investing, though they tend to happen when we least expect them. However, this is not a book about bear markets or how to predict when they will occur. Instead, it provides insight on how to hedge investments so that a pullback in the market need not be a concern. The book will teach you how to create an "insurance policy" for your portfolio. Sleeping Like A Baby starts with the basics of building a high quality portfolio, then offers you the tools needed to quantify and control risk. I explain more than a dozen strategies designed to protect the value of your portfolio from bears and perhaps even make money in declining markets. I welcome questions, feedback, and comments at rylchmn@aol.com.

Wade has certainly outdone himself this time. By far the best book regarding Stock Market investing Wade has ever written. Most of Wade's other books seem to be large advertisements for the “Wall Street Workshop” seminar that he offers (they still offer great information). This one gets into the meat of things. If you have ever thought of attending the Wall Street Workshop read this book first! (Yes, I have taken the Wall Street Workshop) It will definitely keep you from being lost during the course, and if you don’t go to the workshop, it will help you in your investing. I would suggest you get "Saftey 1st Investing", “Candlestick Charting Explained”, and “The Visual Investor” long before you ever make a single trade in the market! Thanks for the new life Wade!

I really enjoyed reading The Millionaire Next Door. The Millionaire Mind, however, seemed to restate many of the things already said. At times this book was outright boring to read, whereas I found the first book fascinating. If you've read neither I'd urge you to spend your money on The Millionaire Next Door instead. For those of you who read Next Door already... honestly, I wouldn't bother with this.

We all will identify with one of the two dads...most of us with Poor Dad. For all but Generation X, we were told that a good education and a good job with a large, solid company were the keys to the good life and a secure future. Well, most of us now know that it just ain't so! Robert Kiyosaki tells us why we got where we are. The Kiyosaki/Lechter team certainly will not be remembered for their mastery of prose, but the book is worth its price for the graphic presentation of financial statements that will make it possible for us "poor dads" to fake it and explain personal finance and wealth-building to our children in ways they can understand. Who knows, it might also reorient our own thinking enough so we can reverse some of the effects of following bad advice ourselves.

This book does explain through ancedotes the timeless values of thrift, frugalness and careful investing. It does not however speak in an effective way to lower income people whom the authors describe as "economic dropouts" looking for information as well as inspiration. For an upscale person with money problems this book could be the basis of a needed paradigm shift. For working folks it doesn't amount to much. The are many good books on the market about the basics of personal finance and investing. This airy philosphical tome doesn't quite fit that category.

Toni Turners's book is a must for those who want an honest concise look at what Online Trading is all about. I have had the distinct pleasure to sit alongside Toni for two years and have walked away amazed at the poise and discipline that this professional brings into our trading environment every day. I too agree that much is written on this subject by those who do not have first hand knowlege of our craft and that is exactly why I am pleased to see this book! It comes from an active participant in our profession not an observer nor a "paper tiger." This book is filled with easy to read techniques and tactics that you will need as well as an honest assessment of the hard work needed as you begin to trade against the best the "Street" has to offer. This book offers a solid, clear , concise plan to start you on road toward self sufficiency and the first step in your growth as traders. This is all then grounded in just some down to earth common sense. This book,although titled for a beginner, can benefit all those who wish to further themselves as professional traders.

I try to read all the newest stock market books. This one is full of new insights that I will be able to profit by in my future trades. This book should be in the library of all serious investors. Another book that I highly recommend for those who are interested in picking high tech stocks is MAKING DOLLARS WITH PENNIES: HOW THE SMALL INVESTOR CAN BEAT THE WIZARDS ON WALL STREET by R. Max Bowser. Bowser has 25 profitable years of investing in high tech as well as other stocks, mostly in the low-priced range. Bowser explains twelve factors that one should look at before picking a stock. His system is compatable with the methods written about in THE GORILLA GAME.

It's so straghtforward it's silly. How to Make Money in Stocks. The funny thing is that what William O'Neil discusses in this book really works! His CANSLIM method makes sense and my favorite pattern, the cup-and-handle, has made me a very happy camper. His explanation of volume and volume spikes has help me find big moves on a regular basis in my trading. I think that this book helps people earn more on their capital immediately by translating seemingly random price action into meaningful signals for investment that most people can understand. If you don't believe me, take a look at what a few of his students have to say. Kevin Marder and Loren Fleckenstein (formerly of O'Neil's newspaper, IBD) talk the talk when it comes to trading at TradingMarkets.com. Jeff Cooper, another successful trader and author, can't get enough of what O'Neil has to say. Bottom Line: A very good investment of time and money.

"Essential Lessons for Investment Success" sums up the information presented in this book wonderfully. Playing the stock market is a very tricky business and success is reserved for those who know how to play the game by knowing what to look for. This book along with "How To Make Money in Stocks" completely changed my life by turning mediocre success into wealth in a very short time. O'Neil's books are a must for anyone who is serious about making money in the market. It is also worh mentioning that while O'Neil's books provide the strategy his paper, Investor's Business Daily, provides the most objective and complete data base available to implement his winning formula. His books go with his daily publication like a hand in a glove to give you the Midas touch and are truly worth their weight in gold. I cannot recommend his books or daily publication too strongly.

This book was absolutely wonderful! I thought Rich Dad Poor Dad was pretty good, because it taught me somethings I never knew and reminded me of where I do and do not want to be in the long term. Cashflow Quadrant abolishes the myths about investing and I loved how he seperated the Employees and Self Employed on the left side and the business owners and investors on the right side. I am starting to invest into some mutual funds, and plan to get educated to sell and invest in real estate. I know just about everyone in the world is described well in this book. For example, my grandfather is a self employed person and belives it is wrong to obtain any money through investments. My dad on the other hand thinks it is foolish to only rely on a job or being self employed. I just want a career and to have most of my money towards investments. Most of my co-workers that have gotten fired are in deep trouble because they never knew or took advantage of the information in this book. If they have investment money, then they wouldn't have to be worried about getting fired. Buy this book! If you don't, you will never be aware of investment opportunities, and will have no choice but to take orders your whole life. Remember, what you do with the paycheck in your hand is your choice. If you blow it all to consume, then you will be poor. If you take the paycheck and put some of it towards investments each time, then you will be getting out of the rat race quicker. But like Kiyosaki says "The choice is up to you"

I found this book useful because of its amazingly wide coverage of investment strategies (stocks, bonds, T-bills, mutual funds, bank accounts, retirement accounts, real estate, private companies...). It is also quite well written, compared to the other books from the "dummies" series. Nonetheless, the reading of this book did not give me all that I expected. The amount of information on each particular method of investing is not sufficient to use this book as the primary and the only reference, and the author himself occasionally recommends the readers some other books on the subject. On the other hand, the book is too detailed to be a basic simple introduction for people who have no clue what the investing is. While I certainly learned a few things from this book, I do not feel that this book was helpful enough to advance my knowledge far from its starting point. My advice: if you know what sort of investing you prefer, borrow this book from the local library to read a couple of chapters which you need, but buy a more focused and detailed book.

This was the first book I read on picking stocks, and I still refer to it occasionally. It contains some very good information on how to evaluate companies. Some of this information has since been updated on the Motley Fool website, and continues to be. That's one thing I like about their outlook: they are willing to change their approach as they continue to learn. On the downside, I find that they completely rule out some very worthwhile aspects of investing as being worthless. For instance, they have a section in the back of the book which practically compares technical analysis (chart reading) to snake oil. Although I personally would not pick a stock only on the basis of its chart, I must allow that charts help us pick good entry and exit points, and provide other pertinent information as well. One of my favorite investment authors, John Murphy, has an entire book on technical analysis. I regard him as a scholar and a very astute thinker who would never dabble in snake oil.....with resources like Murphy's books out there I can't understand TMF's cavalier dismissal of the entire field. They similarly denigrate the entire field of options and futures, which I think perhaps shows a lack of understanding on their part. Aside from these criticisms, however, I recommend this book as a very good primer on how to evaluate a company you are thinking about investing in.

I bought this book after checking out the reviews on Bob Pastorie’s book on Stock Options and after visiting the author's web site. I wanted a thorough understanding of stock awards, stock options, and option strategies. I’m glad I bought this book. It’s packed with facts and how to-do-it information that takes the mystery out of stock options and pre-IPO stock. This is a complicated subject and the book does justice to everything. I especially liked the first couple of chapters that reviews the basics of taxes and terminology before launching into stock awards and stock options. Despite plenty of examples and clearly written material, this is not a book that you’ll read once, and retain everything. The IRS has made sure of that. I will have it close by to refer to. Besides the book, the author’s web site is very helpful. He promptly responded to my specific questions. Wish I could say that about others! There's a great potential to make some serious and costly mistakes when it comes to stock options. Yes, you’ll need help from lawyers and tax professionals, but without this book, you won’t understand anything they’re talking about. In fact, I think you’ll spend more than the cost of the book in legal and professional fees if time has to be taken out to educate you about the basics. I read the book at light speed the first time around. I initially thought that things were confusing and unorganized. I realized that this was a mistake on my part. The subject matter is complex, especially on the various kinds of options and when they vest. I read the book a second time to get prepared to see my lawyer, tax, and estate planner. The book gave me the knowledge to fashion some specific strategies on my stock grant and also how to exercise my options. The benefits of the book’s organization have now become more obvious to me. Is there a negative aspect of the book? Sure. It didn’t get into estate planning or suggest ways of sheltering the potential wealth that could accrue from stock and options from firms going to an IPO. I also wish it would have talked more from the perspective of a firm getting ready to do an IPO, although there were some examples of this. I was also only interested in Nonqualified Options and not the exhaustive coverage on Incentive Stock Options that employees usually receive. However, this was no reason to give it less than 5 stars. I think the estate planning aspect is a great subject for Mr. Thomas’ next book or something that the web can handle. Bottom line here: the book is well worth the price and your time. Read it once, twice, and keep it handy. You’ll definitely refer to it today and in the years ahead.

I received this book as a gift from a dear friend of mine about twelve months ago. When he gave it to me he looked in my eyes and said ... "STUDY THIS BOOK." And I did what almost every normal person with little time on his hands does .... I put the book in my book case and did not read it. Six months went by, and Laura, my youngest daughter (26) came to visit for a couple of days and asked to borrow the book. Two days went by and Laura called me and asked if I thought Mr. Dent was on the money in his predictions. She was surprised to hear that I have not read the book yet, and made me swear that I will buy another copy and read it, and I did. This took place in October 1999. After reading this book, I was a believer that technology will lead us to better places and I started investing heavily in the stock market. At the same time, I read another excellent book on short-term trading, "Stock Trading Wizard" by Tony Oz, and he talked about cost averaging for long-term growth. He wrote about the QQQ which tracks tech stocks (nasdaq 100 index) and I started buying into this stock. I also bought other tech issues and on the morning of January 2, 2000, I sold half my portfolio for more money than I initially invested. I took my initial investment off the table, plus some profits, and I have the rest invested in QQQ for long-term growth. I am staying with technology. I want to thank Mr. Dent as it was for him that I saw the opportunity. I still think that his predictions will come true, and I have my money where his mouth is. So if you believe him or not, I think you should read it. So far, I have more than 250,000 reasons to believe him.

I've known the BASIC concepts of investing for some time, but I've invested in mutual funds only. After reading this book - easy, fun reading packed with sound tips that make a lot of sense - I feel that I now have the knowledge, tools, and confidence to begin investing in stocks without losing my shirt. (I admit that I was a bit skeptical when I discovered that the author is affiliated with MSN MoneyCentral whose tool he recommends. But guess what? This is indeed a great site loaded with powerful tools.) I'm about to try out one of Jon's supermodels, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book for those who want to make use of what's available on the Internet and also learn more in general about investing in stocks.

My Wife and I have only been married about a year and 1/2. I went to college but have been in the workforce for a good 2 years now and never expected so much financial responsibility. They really don't tell you these things in college and if they do, you rarely remember them. This is such a great book to pick up for referance and for just wanting to know how to start off "On the Right Foot". It is very well written and explains things in words that anyone who doesn't know anything will know something once they complete reading this book. Thanks Suze Orman for your time and effort in writing a fabulous book!

In this bold and potentially urgent volume, Robert J. Shiller, a respected expert on market volatility, offers an unconventional interpretation of recent U.S. stock market highs and shows that Alan Greenspan's term "irrational exuberance" is a good description of the mood behind the market. He warns that poorer performance may be in the offing and tells us how we--as a country and individually--can respond. Shiller credits an unprecedented confluence of events with driving stocks to uncharted...

The authors make a convincing case why internet stocks are enormously overvalued right now. They also provide insight into the machinations and manipulations that happen in the background, far away from the centerstage where the stocks are paraded in the limelight and small investors are convinced to part with their money. While the authors are confident that the internet is here to stay (and grow), they are concerned about the insane valuations of internet stocks. On reading this book, any rational investor will go back convinced that the internet stocks are the tulip bulbs of the current era. One wishes small investors will heed this warning. But knowing the previous outbreaks of stock-market mania, not many will escape the ruinous effects of this one either.

I just got this book a few days ago and have been very surprised and impressed by how well it is put together. It not only covers the basic fundamental topics necessary in understanding the system, but it also provides colorful and easy to understand diagrams that coincide with a plethora of information tidbits. A great book for the investing novice and ideal for anyone who needs some help filling in the gaps!

I saw this book in a local business publication. I went out and bought it the same week. I am the woman David writes about. I thought I had a good grasp on the finances, after all I balanced the check book, helped pay bills, knew where the money was, etc... But invest? No, my prince charming took care of that for "our" retirement, while I spent my money on daycare and the children's needs. I had a strong marriage with a husband who was looking out for us. Well, prince charming left me 4 days after my 30th birthday and 5 weeks after the birth of our second child. I am left with two children under the age of 4. I have learned soooooo much from this book. I have pitched it to all my friends that will listen. Women MUST save their OWN money. It is incredible what I have learned so far. I've signed up for 401K and written out all my values and goals. I've even discussed "savings" with my 4 year old son. I plan to buy this book for birthday gifts to my friends. Do yourself a huge service and READ THIS BOOK! Women empower yourselves. This is easy to read, follow and put into action. I now know what mutual funds, bonds, stock, and IRA's are. It's not hard and knowledge is power. Good luck!

I found Pastore's "Stock Options" book to be an essential resource for any employee or entrepreneur needing to understand this very complex subject. It is one of the few comprehensive accurate resources available on the topic. While my book "Engineering Your Start-up" contains some overlapping material and more specific guidance to the entrepreneur in granting stock options, Pastore's book is an essential supplement. It is more complete in some areas, and is up-to-date on the related tax laws. The financial risk of not optimizing one's tax exposure in deciding when to exercise or sell stock options, for example, far exceeds the cost of this book. I recommended to all my friends who have any stock options at all, to buy, read, and keep this book for future reference.

I have to say after reading Dr. Elders book for the second time, I am even more impressed with the wealth of knowledge and understanding of what makes the markets move. I prefer the triple screen method that is presented. This book covers all of the basic knowledge for the beginner as well as the experienced trader. If you are new to trading you will find this an excellent source to build your dreams on. I believe study is the key to sucess in any endeavor. This book is easy to read and you will be amazed at the insight you will gain as to the day to day operation of the markets. I think it is important to decide on what method makes the most sense to your trading style and then learn all you can about it. The more knowledge you have the better decisions you make. I find the hardest part being money management. I have to control my urge to follow my gambling impulse to bet the farm on what looks good in the charts. Even though I know it is a sure way to loose in the market. This is a game of the most interesting kind that changes on a moment by moment basis. What a great way to make money. My word of advice on any trade where you have the slightest doubt of why you are in it is to GET OUT IMEDIATLEY ! . If you do not know why you are in a trade and what you expect to happen and why, then you are guessing. If guessing is what you like to do go to Las Vegas and have a great time. Best to you all in trading. If anyone has a real-time quote service they are proud to have please let me know who they are. Thanks

I read this book in the early 1960s upon the recommendation of my then Dale Carnegie instructor. For me it was most effective because of the clear, simple style in which it is written. I participated in an employer sponsored stock purchase plan during my entire career with AT&T.; In addition, the employer matched a percentage of each dollar saved which is like found money. Whenever I wanted to buy something NOW, I thought about the suggestion in the story to "never sell your children," referring to not spending earned interest. I never forgot that. I am enjoying a comfortable retirement today. I credit the suggestions in this wonderful book with keeping me on track. Now it's OK to spend some of my "children."

In THE COURAGE TO BE RICH, Suze Orman reminds us just how spiritual our relationship to money is. She reminds us how our past views impose upon present realities determining our ability to open ourselves to more abundance or the lack thereof. Thanks, Suze, for writing a book that is both practical in its applications and revelational in the way our soul manifests material reality from the infinite correlations we place our attention upon. -- Samuel Oliver, author of, WHAT THE DYING TEACH US: LESSONS ON LIVING.

The book was excellent reading to supplement my knowledge of penny stock investing. Weaknesses include the strategies and emphasis on trading exclusively on the over-the-counter bulletin boards. Any reader who is interested in unemotional, systematic strategies including trading penny stocks on Nasdaq, New York Stock Exchange, and American Stock Exchange, may wish to browse through MAKING DOLLARS WITH PENNIES: HOW THE SMALL INVESTOR CAN BEAT THE WIZARDS ON WALL STREET, by R. Max Bowser. Bowser shares his twenty-two years experience in the penny stock arena. I think it encompasses a more comprehensive approach to investing in these type stocks.

I figured the "dummy" in the title meant that someone totally clueless like me could buy this book and get all the information they needed about online investing (which is really just investing). Instead, Sindell's book is a bloated list of links to other people's information - the book itself has little useful instruction or guidance, and the information it does have seems to be written for a more investment-savvy audience. Anyone who knows what a P/E ratio is wouldn't need to buy the book in the first place - so why doesn't she slow down and explain what all that stuff means? Indeed, I could have gotten the links in her book for free from a search engine - what I really wanted was a central location for all the information I could have gotten in 100 sites if I had the time to browse through them all. Instead of doing that, Sindell gives me the 100 sites and says, go look it up. She still doesn't tell me HOW I'm supposed to use these sites to determine whether a company's stock is solid or not. Some of them were dead links - another point to be made for minimizing web links in print manuals. Altogether a disappointing read.

This is a great book to start out with and read. Seth Godin wrote this book seriously but humouring. This book tells you how the stock market works,tell's you about churning and price manipulation, how much of the pie Uncle Sam wants. This book will walk you through the balance sheet and how to understand them, How to read the stock tables, what the index is about, and so on. This is just a great book and it has helped me open my mind to understanding the stock market. The only down side I could fine is if you don't like a little bit of humour then this book may not be for you. The great side on the humour is if you got sweaty palms like I did the Godin's humour relieve the stress. I learn a lot from this book and you will to.

Harry S. Dent is an optimistic visionary that uses simple techniques to explain historical data and how it relates to potential future events. He mistrusts modern economists ,who he believes are over-analytical, and contrives a simple plan to assist all laymen (or the "average Joe" like myself). There is a bit of fluff regarding tax planning and obtaining a financial advisor which is more suitable for those with substantial capital (not in that group, YET). Read this book and start a mutual fund with some of your savings and have faith and prosper! I personally have started a global technology fund, if any of you were interested.

I am new to the investment world and for the last year, I have read several books on investing. The problem was I didn't remember all those equations and definitions.

Good job, Fools.

Expect this little work to be exactly what it is titled, "Dictionary of Finance and Investment Terms". It does not contain a story, or financial advice, or commonly used terms. It is a financial dictionary. Its binding is "professional" softcover with very thin pages- required due to the 600+ pages. I notice some of the reviewers’ felt it was not worth the money. Where else can you find a professional dictionary of specialized terms for under $? I found the book so useful, I purchased Barron's Investment Guide, which includes the dictionary. I recommend both of these books on my web site, Finance and Investment for Beginning Investors. If your looking for an enthralling read, the Finance Dictionary is not that. If you’re looking for an inexpensive, professional little reference book, full of pertinent terms and explanations, this one will definitely earn its keep.

This is the sixth book I have read on investment in one year. Along with "A random walk down wall street" by Burton Malkiel it has bee the best and most informative. For a while I do not think I will read any investment books before I make sure I can follow Mr. lynch's SIMPLE AND PROFITABLE advice. His classification of stocks are great and his timing for buying and selling each of these classfication are also great (fast growers, slow growers, turnarounds, asset plays, cyclicals). His chapter "stocks I would avoid" is full of sincere warnings of foolish mistakes we make over and over. Add to this the introductory chapters where he explains why we should invest in what we already know makes this book a must read. It is amazing how many opportunities we all miss on stocks that are right in front of us, yet we ignore them and waste our time finding the hottest stocks when mostly these stocks are overly priced. Let me tell you about a small example of what I am talking about. I use Yahoo finance alot in my research almost on daily basis, but I never thought of knowing the company that provides it with all this wonderful information. And while once scrolling down the Yahoo page I read that Tibco Software provides it with the quote technology. (I remembered Lynch when he says that we spend most of our time trying to find the great stock when the great stock has been striving to find us). I rushed to check the stock out. Too bad it has already increased more than tenfold in a month time. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU WITH YOUR NEXT TEN BAGGERS.

I have bought investiment and financial planning books throughout the years, but never got past the first chapter or two. But I read this book from beginning to end in one sitting. The difference? This book presents dry, boring financial information in a witty and humorous way that makes you want to keep reading because it is so funny. But it also educates...I am going to follow their investment strategies after speaking with others who have used it and prospered. Anyway, if you want to laugh and have fun learning about the stock market, get this book. By the way, the fools say that they can make investing fun for you and they did....even more fun then spending and I love to shop!

After reading "The Motley Fool Investment Guide", finishing up this book and spending a few days around their web site I feel these guys are really on to something. Their investment advice is straightforward and easy to follow. This book will show you how to identify those potentially very lucrative stocks that can't really be valued with current techniques -- ones that require a more subjective determination. It then shows how to identify those companies that will continue to produce good returns and offer a great long term investment opportunity. The writing style (as with all of their books) is extremely conversational. In fact, in some cases this book can probably be too conversational. I enjoyed the style at first, but just wanted to get right to the details by the end. The measurements they use to make judgements about a company are clearly explained and then followed up with several case studies. Throughout the book they provide many examples of their techniques put into practice. It would have been nice summary sheets were provided for the major techniques introduced. I've found that after the first read I had to go back and takes notes.

Packed with much information in an easy to read format. Contains a wealth of information on trends, charts, indicators and intermarket relationships. This is the book to get you on the road to learning visual analysis. Covers the basics in an easy to comprehend approach. It has a non-intimidating style unlike any other I have seen. This is the one to get you started on the road to successful T.A., or at least peak your interest in the subject. I highly recommend this to anyone with limited, or like me, no experience in tech. analysis, but wants to learn.

We all know that it's OUR money and we should watch out for it but there's so much information out there that it's hard to even figure out what we should look for. That's why Ms. Savage's book is so useful. She walks you through the decisions and questions you have about money and points you in the right direction. She's direct and sometimes funny and is never condescending. It's as if she's in your living room looking over your shoulder as you read your brokerage statements or balance your checkbook. A great book for anyone who wants to take charge of their money!

This reasonably short book summarizes the basics of personal finance in an easy to read witty style. It's aimed at the intelligent but beginning investor looking for practical advice and guidance on investing and money management. Although it does discuss buying options, day-trading, etc. readers looking for detailed comprehensive information and advice on these and similar topics probably should look elsewhere (or perhaps they should look here first-- after reading this book they might think twice about investing in more complicated schemes). For those looking for sound unbiased advice and information on basic investing and money management however this book will be very helpful. And as an added bonus, its actually fun and enjoyable to read.

Whether you are a short or long term trader, this book is a must have. Once you read this book, you will want to use no other charting method but candlesticks. More important than teaching very common chart patterns, you come away with a good understanding of what each type of candlestick is telling you about the psychology of the market you are studying. Although his clear illustrated examples use mostly futures, these methods definitely apply to equities as well. You will no longer fear shorting a stock when you can clearly see the "dark cloud cover" on strong volume. If you want to know more about technical charting and have money for only one book, this is it.

Options are a very powerful tool in investing. Any stock investor is running half blind if they do not consider using options as part of there investment strategy This book is a great place to start for anyone who wants to have an understanding of what options are and how they can be used as both speculative and conservative investment tools. The author provides a very through tutorial on what options are, what they are used for and how you can used them in your investment strategy. Many examples are presented to insure that each topic is fully understood. In fact there are so many examples that you may want to skip one here and there after you already understand the subject described. However, these examples are great in illustrating the various topics presented. The book will be useful for both beginners and more advanced users who wish to know more about the various techniques used in options trading. Having said that, if you are a very experienced options investor who is looking for complex strategies, you would probably be better of with a more advanced book. The ideal reader of this book would be a person who has been doing some stock trading and is now ready to move to more complex (and potentially rewarding) options based trading.

Buy, buy, buy! This is the best book on stocks and financials that I have ever read. History and perspective (which may be lacking in today's market)that is well written in an easy to digest style. With this book you don't need "Beating the Dow with Bonds" - throw it in the trash, stocks are proved winners; "Random Walk Down Wallstreet" - covered, save your money plus here there is some evidence for the 200-day moving average strategy - not so Random; "Contrarian Investment Strategies" - yes, proved to be the way to make money and covered in this book.... plus, did you know GE is the only original DOW stock or that the Russell 2000 are only 11% of the market's cap or the genesis of the Dow Transport? It's all in there and more.

If you've never read a book about investing in the stock market, this is a great book to start with. Having read many of the authors that Jason cites, I found his distillation of their concepts quite good. Jason first teaches one how to evaluate stocks, and then what the Master Investors (e.g., Buffett, Fisher) can teach us about investing and stock selection. Jason also focuses on a book entitled "What Works on Wall Street." This book by James O'Shaughessy revolves around his study of 43 years of results from 1952-1995 contained in Standard & Poor's Compustat database. Jason's book ends with chapters to help you set up your own core portfolio utilizing the methodology he has set forth. Bottom line: if you're looking for a thorough discussion of the Capital Asset Pricing Model or the Equity Premium, then I would look at more academic texts, but if you want a clear, user-friendly, well-researched discussion of the stock market, I would buy this book. The average 5 star review from 25 people (as of this review) is substantial evidence to this book's value.

I bought this, not foolishing thinking it would actually tell me how to become a billionaire, but thinking it would offer some meaty insights, given the lofty financial position the aauthor holds (Merrill Lynch Managing Director), and because of his previous exceptional book on financial analysis. But it was pretty disappointing. Based around 9 trite truisms such as buy low and outmanage the competition, it never tells you how to achieve this. And the chapters describing each billionaire who is supposed to exemplify each truism are thin, filled with social commentary (who cares if Richard Branson throws people into swimming pools?) and few insights. But the books most glaring void - and the method most accessible to anyone really wishing to be (or is that become?) a billionaire - is its failure to focus on a new and certainly proven method of achieving the titles promise...develop a great internet business idea and take it public. In that the authors place of business has itself helped create a number of these makes this omission even more glaring.

An excellent book that has a fresh approach. This book, unlike so many others, explains various styles, or systems of successful trading. The author's contention is that to be successful at trading one must find the correct methods that fall into, and satisfy, one's own belief system and individual personality. Thus, each trader must find his own individual system and methods that harness one's strengths, and avoid or minimize one's weaknesses, if he or she expects to trade successfully on a consistent basis. Most other books, and I have read many of them, simply explain a single system or the techniques of the author's trading. Readers of these books will usually experience limited success if they then try to emulate that author's methods. Tharp's book gives an excellent overview of the essentials of a sound trading approach and emphasizes the importance of deriving one's own trading system. I highly recommend this book to all traders, expecially those new to trading that are serious and ready to make the necessary commitment. One unfortunate negative development. The book's forward is written by David Mobley, Sr. Tharp touts him as one of his "Super Traders" that he has personally coached and a graduate of his trading school. In two recent Barron's articles (Feb. 12 & 26) it was reported that Mobley has confessed to the SEC and other federal authorities that his fund was a complete sham. A ponzi scheme that bilked investors of tens, possibly hundreds, of millions of dollars. This throws Tharp's credibility into serious question, and all readers should be suspicious of his claims, home study courses and seminars.

If you're looking for trite, corny advice then this book is for you. He just rehashes information that we've been hearing for years and he doesn't even tell it in a compelling way. He describes himself as the most recognized money expert. If he wants to be accurate, he should describe himself as one of the most boring and unoriginal self-described experts. Amazon sells many personal finance books that are much better than this one.

This book is an excellent beginners guide to the complex subject of options trading. Not only is it a good introduction but it is also useful to the seasoned trader. It is very readable and the subject treatment is very "user friendly." I have read many books on options trading and technical indicators and, for the beginner, this book is, by far, one of the best. It combines methods of stock selecting, trading philosophy, and some of the do's and don't's of trading into a thorough package. Coupled with their website with its daily updates and links, CompleteTrader has a very comprehensive and "complete" package.

Well, if you are expecting another book of "guesses" about where & how you should invest your money, you're in for a surprise. Bob Markman dispells about every investment theory out there. But the exciting thing is that he gives documented statiscal data backing up his theories. For instance, he tells you why investing in large caps is the way to go rather than small caps...read the book to find out why! He suggests American companies rather than foreign. But most of all I appreciate how Bob recognizes how great we have it here with the American economy. Yes, he's a bit red, white, and blue, but perhaps we should all be a bit more inclined to praise what Americans are able to accomplish in this "land of the free." This book will give you great debate data...you'll come off as really sounding creative and informed if you've read the book. Run, don't walk to get your issue.

The first half of this book picks up where his previous (and much better work) One Up on Wall Street left off. About half way through though Lynch veers off and rambles on and on about SNLS and other obscure stocks thereby abandoning his "buy what you know" theory (unless, of course you are an investment banker and probably wouldn't need this book). A big letdown after loving his first book. Difficult to get through after first half. Better to re-read OUOWS again.

If there is a single book on Technical Analysis that I would recommend to anyone, this is it! Mr. Murphy covers quite a large spectrum of Technical Analysis and yet remains easy to understand for the beginners and intermediates alike. The methods are applicable across a wide range of financial instruments. Also, chart examples include market data that is recent and modern enough to reflect the faster online trading markets. You can't go wrong adding this great book to your collection.

The following caption is written by a professional book critque. Psychology rules the stock market, according to Hersh Shefrin. In Beyond Greed and Fear, Shefrin shows how bias, perception, and other aspects of psychology often rattle investors and move stocks. From the individual who keeps losers too long to overconfident money managers who mistakenly think they can predict financial trends, human nature foils investment returns. "Behavioral finance is everywhere that people make financial decisions. Psychology is hard to escape; it touches every corner of the financial landscape, and it's important. Financial practitioners need to understand the impact that psychology has on them and those around them. Practitioners ignore psychology at their peril," writes Shefrin, a finance professor at Santa Clara University. An academic volume geared toward financial professionals, the book details an emerging field known as behavioral finance, in which psychology is believed to be at least as important as market fundamentals, such as earnings and balance sheets. Shefrin describes how investors are motivated by fear, hope, overconfidence, and the need for short-term gratification. The book gives plenty of examples of investment mistakes, and analyzes them from a behavioral-finance perspective. While Beyond Greed and Fear targets professionals, individual investors will benefit from this look at an important mover of markets.

I purchased this book for clarification of "normal" removal of money from tax-deferred accounts. Unfortunately, the money spent was a complete waste for that purpose. I could find no mention, not a single comment, about this all important topie. "Normal" removal in my definition is removing reasonable sums of deferred money from accounts, between the ages of 59 1/2 and 70 1/2. While I have since discovered what I needed to know, I find it most odd that there is no mention of this topic. That said, IF you wish information on the topic of either removing deferred money BEFORE 59 1/2 or AFTER 70 1/2, I would rate the book a 3 star on those issues. However even there, I would dig for details on some topics and find only general information. As they say "the devil is in the details" and that certainly is true when it comes of tax-deferred investments and the IRS. While I have been happy with Nolo Press books in the past, I would keep looking before buying this one.

Do you want to know how everything started ? Do you want to know why this silly "Technical Analysis" really works ? Well, this is the right way to start. Do not believe in these new computer intraday graphs that stockbrokers try to push to you until you really knows how technical analysis really works. You may be a hero to them (who earn comissions on your trade)but your wife will probably hate you for losing your house.Please, learn how everything begin before you start trading in the market.


I Sooaarr... through here daily, see'ya tomorrow! Well Trader!  I hope you found some thing of interest!
