Overview

Tired of phony promises about getting rich quickly, promises that lead to reckless decisions (the stepping stones to the poor house)? How about trying something different? How about going for lasting wealth—and doing it the cautious way? In Get Rich Carefully, Jim Cramer uses his thirty-five years of experience as a Wall Street veteran and host of CNBC’s Mad Money to create a guide to high-yield, low-risk investing. In our recovering economy, this is the plan you need to make big money without taking big risks.

Drawing on his unparalleled knowledge of the stock market and on the mistakes and successes he's made on the way to his own fortune, Cramer explains—in plain English—why you can get rich in a prudent, methodical way, as long as you start now. In his own inimitable style, Cramer lays it on the line, no waffling, no on-the-one-hand-or-the-other hedging, just the straight stuff you need to accumulate wealth. This is a book of wisdom as well as specifics. Cramer names names, highlights individual and sector plays, and identifies the best long-term investing themes—and shows you how to develop the disciplines you need to exploit them. 

The personal finance book of the year, Get Rich Carefully is the invaluable guide to turning your savings into  real, lasting wealth in a practical, and yes—because this is, after all, a book by Jim Cramer—highly readable and entertaining way.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

With thirty-five years of Wall Street experience and a fair share of early mistakes, MSNBC Mad Money's Jim Cramer knows that get rich quick schemes often fizzle. His new book teaches readers to act prudently in these still uncertain times. Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully spells out the basics of high-yield, low-risk investing. Cautious words that you can take to the bank.

Kirkus Reviews
2013-12-04
Forget about getting rich quick: The new investment climate, writes Mad Money host Cramer (Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World, 2005, etc.), is "treacherous....[B]izarre stock movements have become the staple, if not the hallmark, of this era." It's an age of "random gyrations" and irrationality, and the 2010 "flash crash" may have been a technical hiccup, but it's spooked investors ever since--and Cramer, formerly known for his exuberant approach (and often lampooned for it), has since taken a visibly more deliberate approach to the matter. This new book reflects his caution. For one thing, he observes early on, the stock market is now "hostage" to sector exchange-traded funds whose movements make the fundamentals meaningless; the big-basket approach is the tail that wags the dog. Of course, ETFs are easier to own than individually selected stocks, and, as Cramer observes, if you want to understand the cyclical nature of the market, you "have to be on top of world events, particularly in China, pretty much every day," which, in theory, is just what fund managers do. Still, the author stresses fundamental wisdom pitched at different categories of investors: For a conservative investor, for instance, he recommends "pipeline master limited partnerships" as a point of entry into the energy market, while he notes the tea-cup shifts in commodity producers like Domino's Pizza that, properly timed, can yield wealth. But who can time the market? Not the Federal Reserve, for sure, for its minutes are a month old and are worth "nothing at all." Cramer's long list of dos and don'ts (Relative valuations don't justify a purchase"; "Stop falling in love with your stocks") is worth the price of the book. Look to this book for guiding principles rather than specific tips.

The post-Great Recession investing environment is much different now than when investors sought refuge in the "safe" investment of bonds, as the bull market in bonds has come to an end. Cramer (host of CNBC's Mad Money with Jim Cramer; Jim Cramer's Getting Back to Even; Jim Cramer's Real Money) offers his response with this guide to a high-yield, low-risk strategy for investing. Each chapter covers a separate topic, from insights CEOs can count on to what moves a stock price. Chapter summaries cover the main points in a succinct fashion, while the rest of the section contains examples and stories in Cramer's typical down-to-earth manner, reflecting 35 years of industry experience. VERDICT A practical guide meant to give the reader real advice on how and when to invest, this book will be popular among Cramer's followers; its guidance differs slightly from previous titles to account for the current market circumstances, so there will be something new for everyone. While some of the examples will become quickly outdated, this is a highly recommended resource for stock investors who want an inside look at the market.

    I like gutsy books involving money making, power, development and ideas Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully fulfills that. There are tons of advice in the book on making money. And not only is it well written, it is also fun to read. This book along with Disciples of Fortune are among the top insightful books I read recently.

    Probably one of the least helpful financial books I have ever reviewed. The books was obviously written for a 3rd grader's mentality. Would definitely not recommend for the mature person.
