Praise for Be Smart, Act Fast, Get Rich

"Charles Payne's book is blunt, provocative, and right on the money. This book is a lot like Charles himself: insightful and to the point. If you have time to read only one book on how to make money . . . this is the book."
—Dr. Bob Froehlich, Chairman, Investor Strategy Committee Deutsche Asset Management, and Vice Chairman, DWS Scudder

"Be Smart, Act Fast, Get Rich is a book for all investors from first-time stock buyers to seasoned investors. 'Be Smart' suggests you understand the fundamentals of the company you are purchasing. 'Act Fast' suggests that action must be taken if you are going to increase your wealth in the stock market. All too often we find interesting ideas to invest in but never have the confidence to act, only to watch the stock's price rise while others reap the benefits. This book is an easy read, and a must-read for all investors."
—Tom Dorsey, President, Dorsey Wright & Associates and author, Point & Figure Charting

"You should buy this book just for the super job Charles does in explaining everything you need to know about charts, graphs, and the other 'voodoo' of technical analysis that he makes so simple to understand. Charles really gives you a street fighter's education in the markets . . . I wish his book was around twenty-five years ago . . . it would have saved me millions in market mistakes I've made."
—Tobin Smith, founder and Chairman, ChangeWave Research

    ACT SMART AND BUY QUICKLY ...

    Countless times my friends and I would repeat the phrase 'If we only had stock in a particular 'hot' product that we would be rich.' And sadly, not one of us has ever taken the initiative to find out how to actually get into the stock market because we thought only the wealthy could afford the risk of investing. The author, Charles V. Payne, clearly wants folks to stop making the 'fat cats' richer off our spending trends and learn how the stock market works by understanding the concept, the language, and game strategies to enrich our lives and reap those benefits. He 'keeps it simple' and 'keeps it real' in his thoroughly written, knowledgeable, and witty book, 'Be Smart, Act Fast, Get Rich.'. It's a winner. The only way one can get in the stock market game is to play. And why not learn from one of the truly successful men on Wall Street, who hailed from humble beginnings. Throughout his book, as one turns and reads the pages, you can feel his tenacity as he vividly describes his life when he purchased his first mutual fund at age seventeen and later started his own company. Mr. Payne's book should be required reading for all high school and college seniors before they set out in the real world of financial dealings. His book is not to be shelved, but used as a every day reference tool for those who delve into the stock market. It's a great gift for family and friends for the holidays, or any day. Hindsight is 20/20 --count my friends and I in!

    Great book for the first time buyer of stocks.

    Very easy to follow along for a first time buyer of stocks. The author explains in a systematic way of how to set up your investments, and reinforces strong points to remember. After changing jobs, and cashing out my 401K. I've been inspired to take the plunge in buying my own stocks. Could'nt really find anything negative in the book.
