    DOES NOT TELL YOU 'HOW TO' ANYTHING

    Very Negative book. The whole first chapter tells you that you're probably not cut out to do this. That's for me to decide given proper INFORMATION, which is lacking and disorganized. Stock Investing for dummies was EXTREMELY well written and helpful; I can not say enough good about that book. I expected the same from this one and was extremely disappointed. Definite DO NOT BUY.

    Recomended

    I have very little patience when it comes to reading badly written books. This one is very well written with solid unique points, but i feel it should cover more on how to pick hot stocks for short term profits. For those who think hot stocks is the way to go in this volatile market I recommend MomentumStockPick com

    Rough going and not very helpful

    So many "warnings" and "Cautions" and no real HOW DO I DO IT inside. Not what I wanted/needed/expected and way, way too general.
