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".

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.

It all sounds so simple:

1) The stock market has been the best place to invest historically. [I say: but not over the last 10 years]

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'.]

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.]

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.

This is a good book for beginners who wants to grasp the most basic principles of stock investing. However, some things are still not thouroughly explained.

Well written so that neophytes such as myself in the investing world can understand some very complex concepts. Haven't even finished the first chapter, but I look forward to the insight I'll gain with the rest of the book! I think of particular importance is his explanations of what data is critical to keep track of and which data is less important, and why. I'm going to need to re-read the book and take notes!

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.
