    Unlike any investing you've ever done online!

    Extremely unconventional. Unbelievably original. This is way outside conventional market theory, and it is chock full of stories from the REAL WORLD about how to make money in stocks without doing any derivatives, technical or fundamental analysis. What is presented in this book is a authentic, original approach to actually doing the HARD WORK to discover poorly disseminated information about publicly traded companies. By doing hard work and getting a true, important, and exclusive edge on the general investment community, you can realistically put your money in situations of 1:30+ risk:reward situations. Brilliant work here. Read it for the stories, the strategies, and even a few laughs! An absolute pleasure to read. I am already starting my first sleuthing engagement this week!
