"If you liked his first book, you'll love his second. Kraft builds on what the reader learned in his first book by going much deeper into the strategies and by discussing some new products, as well as viewing these from an investment perspective as well as a trading perspective. A must-read if you are serious about wealth accumulation."
Phil Schwegler, Vice President, Investments, Smith Barney

"The Smart Investor's Money Machine is essential reading for investors of all ages. The timeless and tested strategies detailed by Mr. Kraft are well written and logically set forth. Superb information for the investor who desires to learn the intricacies of investing for maximum returns."
