    I Also Recommend:

    Learn from the masters, but don't assume that you can replicate them.

    The book is written well, and contains a good synthesis of the wisdom from investment gurus like Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham, and Bill O'Neil. Some people say that there is "nothing original" in this book; but I'd prefer a good round-up of proven techniques from real gurus rather than an unproven brand new "idea".<BR/><BR/>But I'd like to inject a note a realism. Just because these techniques have worked for some successful investors in the past, it doesn't mean that you will make them work in the future.<BR/><BR/>It all sounds so simple:<BR/><BR/>1) The stock market has been the best place to invest historically. [I say: but not over the last 10 years]<BR/><BR/>2) If you can find a ten-bagger stock you can turn $10,000 into $100,000 in a single investment. Re-invest the $100,000 in another ten-bagger and you have $1,000,000 after two trades! [I say: It's possible; but don't confuse 'possible' with 'probable'.]<BR/><BR/>3) All you need to do is find a sound company, with great products, with good growth potential, which is currently undervalued for some reason. [I say: determining that a company is undervalued based on its fundamental ratios is not proven beyond doubt by my own recent research.]<BR/><BR/>When reading any stock market book, even a good one like this, I think that a degree of healthy scepticism is a good thing. Learn from the masters, but don't assume that you can replicate them.<BR/><BR/>Tony Loton, author --<BR/>"Stock Fundamentals On Trial: Do Dividend Yield, P/E and PEG Really Work?"<BR/>"DON'T LOSE MONEY!: (in the Stock Markets)"

    Where are the charts?

    I am new to the concept of stock investing and so far, this book is great for learning all of the basics and concepts, and would give it 5 stars. The problem is that the images and charts the author is writing of are missing! I really want to buy this book for my nook, but missing figures is a huge negative. Not the authors fault though and I do plan to purchase a physical copy, but not happy with b&n about it one bit.
