Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is very useful for people that do not have strong investment skills or are just starting to invest. Mr. O'Neil provides strong insight into chart analysis and investing fundamentals that everyone should have and practice regularly. Unfortunately, a lot more useful information could be included if there were not so many advertisements by Mr. O'Neil for his other products.
This book makes understanding the Market simplified and concise without alot of technical jargon. Very easy read and easy to comprehend. If you buy only one book on investing, this is the one to buy.
This book has a bunch of useful information but really it should be called "A plug for Bill O'Neil's other products". He talks about the other products in his line Incessantly. He also writes in kind of a condescending manner. I had to stop reading the book because it was irritating me so much! If you can get past that it seems to have good info...
I feel this is a very good investment book. I had to read it more than once to truly get the most out of it. I really felt the sections about market direction are really good. I never truly understood, how to take into account general market conditions. I now realize how it can be done and why it is so important. The rest of the book is great too. I also feel a subcription to IBD is worth it. If you don't want to buy it, go to your local library and read it.
This book is a must for any individual investor, only interested in making good money, in the stock market.
I really am impressed with the author since he puts his ideas into action. Some of the stock investment ideas he discusses are really effective. He is a believer in investing in small companies that have plenty of room to grow.
