The best investing advice I've received over the past 18 months has come from Jim Cramer. If I had heeded it all I would be in far better shape than I am. The parts that I did heed put me in a much better position than I would have been in otherwise. This book offers a variety of strategies for recovering from the freefall of late 2008 - early 2009. Not all strategies will work for all investors. As a busy working Mom, options are not for me. I do like his small, healthy bank strategy -- which is how my Mom accidentally made a killing in the late 80s. What's best about this book is that its given me the courage to make some moves after being paralyzed for six months longer than I should have been. I have long been a disciple of the buy-and-hold gospel, which just about destroyed me over the past year. Cramer makes solid arguments for why that doesn't work any more, and I am benefitting from the parts of this book that are suitable for my particular status in life. He understands basic things that other investment gurus often ignore, such as that the investing goals of recent college graduates are immensely different from the investing goals of parents like me, with several children in college. Cramer is on the side of the small investor. He confesses when he's wrong and explains how he made the error. I appreciate his honesty. If you're still in shock over the status of your portfolio or IRA, you need to read this book.

This is a man with a proven track record that tells you the way it is. Even trade secrets, that he draws a lot of criticism for. I am a long time private investor, that has noticed the propaganda put out by well known publications to sell certain stocks (the stocks would rise in volume before the stories were release). Cramer debunks the propaganda. The most useful thing I learned was when to sell. The second is trading a stock to get leverage. Cramer explains market logic. His stock picks are not always right, but nobody is. He is not giving you a fish, but teaching you how to fish. Cramer's main point is "Buy and research" (as opposed to "buy and hold") and he teaches you how to do the research. I benefited from his teaching of market logic and the motives of the professionals. Good Hunting

The book has a few great points, and others that I would not heed. However, I would NOT follow the advice of Jon Stewart. Seems like previous reviewer did not even read the book. Seems like reviewer can't even put a coherent sentence together. Since when is Jon Stewart a financial expert or anything other than a bitter old man? Has he ever said anything positive about anyone? (besides himself?)

I've been making many mistakes regarding options trading thru the years. The chapter regarding options is great. I've already made a bundle using his simple conservative methodology.

As usual, Mr. Cramer writes a book with interesting and thoughtful insight into ways to recover from the losses of 2008. There are many useful ideas but the emphasis is on homework. Some of the previous opinions before this book have proven wrong such as the opinion that Lehman Bros would recover but each of his books goes back to homework. Markets have changed since the book was wriiten so it is useful for how to use some financial tools and gives some investments to consider. However, I will not trust my finances to anybody without doing my own research. I believe that is a point to be remembered from the book above all else.
