This book has lots of detailed, accurate information about NASDAQ and the stocks that trade there. Unless you plan to buy and sell these stocks (which I would advise against for most people), this information is of little value. The book is a good implementation of an inappropriate book concept for most people. The author makes a great comment. ' . . . [T]he market is a place for risk capital.' I interpret that to mean money that you can afford to lose, like money you have after you have provided for your retirement, paying for college educations, getting rid of your credit card debt, etc. Now, very few people are in the circumstance to have risk capital. Unless you do, stop thinking about investing in individual stocks now. If you do have risk capital, I suggest you read 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' as your first step. Because it is unlikely that your risk capital should be going first into stocks. If for some reason, you feel you must be in stocks, please read John Bogle's Common Sense About Mutual Funds. My favorite quote in the book is 'If an investor had used only P/E ratios as a guide to purchase stocks, she or he would have missed out on many large gainers.' That is certainly true, and missing out on those gainers would also have allowed you to miss out on many losers . . . and gainers that became losers. Can you think of a stock with an overpriced P/E in March 2000 that is higher today? Skip this book unless you are thinking about becoming a stock broker. After you read this review, I suggest you think about other areas where having less knowledge is an advantage. For example, would it help you to know more or less about post-surgical complications? Take advantage of all those situations when less knowledge is more! Keep your risk capital where it belongs, as the author recommends!
