The best investing advice I've received over the past 18 months has come from Jim Cramer. If I had heeded it all I would be in far better shape than I am. The parts that I did heed put me in a much better position than I would have been in otherwise. This book offers a variety of strategies for recovering from the freefall of late 2008 - early 2009. Not all strategies will work for all investors. As a busy working Mom, options are not for me. I do like his small, healthy bank strategy -- which is how my Mom accidentally made a killing in the late 80s. What's best about this book is that its given me the courage to make some moves after being paralyzed for six months longer than I should have been. I have long been a disciple of the buy-and-hold gospel, which just about destroyed me over the past year. Cramer makes solid arguments for why that doesn't work any more, and I am benefitting from the parts of this book that are suitable for my particular status in life. He understands basic things that other investment gurus often ignore, such as that the investing goals of recent college graduates are immensely different from the investing goals of parents like me, with several children in college. Cramer is on the side of the small investor. He confesses when he's wrong and explains how he made the error. I appreciate his honesty. If you're still in shock over the status of your portfolio or IRA, you need to read this book.

The book has a few great points, and others that I would not heed. However, I would NOT follow the advice of Jon Stewart. Seems like previous reviewer did not even read the book. Seems like reviewer can't even put a coherent sentence together. Since when is Jon Stewart a financial expert or anything other than a bitter old man? Has he ever said anything positive about anyone? (besides himself?)
