About the Reviews

This is a great book. He starts by helping you understand all the stock rhetoric, which was really great for someone like me who knew almost nothing about the stock market. He goes through things in a nice linear fashion to help you understand proven and timeless strategies, namely how to recognize great companies and how to recognize when they are on sale, or at a bargain. He teaches the summary of strategy used by 6 great investors (Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham, Philip Fisher, Peter Lynch, William O'Neil and Bill Miller). Though this is my first book on this subject, I feel like what is taught is a very sound, safe, and a wise strategy for anyone's venture into the stock market. We as humans are so whimsical and emotional and the system and discipline that this book encourages seems really solid. Oh, he takes James O'Shaunessy's research of 83 years of the stock market and teaches what trends and value measures O'Shaunessy found to predict good stocks, too! Check it out!

*********************************

This book is not going to turn you into a rich bastard. However, in the amount of pages this book contains, this book has everything you could need to get started as a beginning investor. The flow to Kelly's word's is easy to understand and not too technical for one just beginning his or her journey into the investing world. He does a great job defining and redefining words that made me say "wait..what's that word mean?". He seems to know the exact areas the reader needs a little help or nudge. I do not plan on using all of his strategies or tips, but I formed my own strategies taking bits and pieces from him and other great investors he mentions. This is what every investor should do, take bits and pieces from where they can and where they agree. Thanks Jason for the insight.

*********************************

This book is very good at what it aims to do. And that is demystify investing. It explains everything from the very beginning answering questions like what is a stock market? and how do stocks make money?

The best part of this book is in the second chapter where the author explains the styles of some of the best investors of all time in a very straight forward manner.

Overall that second chapter alone is worth the money in my opinion.
