Jim Cramer is the Neil DeGrass Tyson of investing. He helps you understand what goes on in the market without making you feel like you need an investors dictionary. These are simple tips for young beginner investors, retirees, and everyone in between. This book pays for itself.
This is a good book to get you fired up about investing, but it constantly emphasizes the need for prudence and diligent homework while evaluating prospective stocks. I thought the narration from Mr. Kramer sounded a bit odd, like he was reading a book written by someone else. The reference charts and diagrams that he refers to would be great, but audible doesn't yet include these, so it is a little harder to follow in this format.
Last 3 chapters really get DEEP into investment strategies! Love it!
Just heard the whole book and have taken notes. Going to listen to it one more time and continue to hone my knowledge!
His energy and enthusiasm keeps you engaged. I watch his show most days the market is open, and have read this book in print. I get insight each time.
He brings his energy and engagement... his clear passion for this material. Reading the book, you get the information. Here is a concise (it is abridged I believe) version of the information brought to life by his lively personality.
Starts with the basics of valuing a stock from a professionals point of view.
Yes, because he looks at a stock from a different point of view.
Not to believe the national analysts comments
Cramer does a great job of describing what it takes for the average person to invest his or her money wisely in the market. The 2 most important things he talks about are diversification & his idea of buy & homework. He teaches the everyday investor how to evaluate stocks with publicly available information so that we can make our own decisions when in get in or get out. Anyone looking to improve the performance of their investments would do well listening to what Cramer has to say.
I like Jim Cramer from his tv show on CNBC, but in this book, with his style of high volume energy, he makes the book come alive and really get you interested... Listend to it twice and learned more stuff every time...
Will definetly buy more of his audio books
First, Jim is fun but he does not read well. He has to pronounce better.
Second, the book contains good ideas and concepts, but too many!!!, and they are not presented in a structured way to facilitate the understanding.
