William J Oneil has got it down!I have bought several other stock market audio books from audible and Oneil is the one that really knows his stuff.Get ready to subscribe to IBD you need it to effectively benefit from this book. I would buy it again if I didnt have it! Also Phil Town and Cramers real money were beneficial. William J Oneil is the best!!!!!!
The book does provide some good pointers to look for before investing however it doesn't really teach you how to look for them.
To reap the benefits of this book you will likely need to subscribe and pay a membership to a good screening tool. Otherwise the book is very much useless.
The book is also overwhelming at times, a combination from the reader's voice and the amount of information being thrown at you all at once.
In short if you are a beginner investor start off with something else like Rule #1 or the little book the beats the market(although views on this book contradicts those methods) and expect to pay for a screening tool if you want to apply the main lessons of this books.
This Is one of the best book you can read ever! If you want to learn how to trade stock.Buy this book today...... and read it.... five time and make a million dollars in 10 years.
High up there, I liked how he had a minimal amount of fluff and story telling that other financial authors try to apply but are no JK Rowling, that's for sure.
I've listened to this audiobook several times, and purchased the book and have read it through twice as well. This book put me on an entirely different way of trading. The two biggest helps for me were for cutting losses and simplifying my technical analysis. Granted, you basically need to subscribe to IBD to be able to use all the tools, but a great book nonetheless.
May not be a great book for newcomers to the stock market, but for those who have been buying and selling but feel pushed around it can help bring some understanding to why the market moves the way it does.
William O'Neil is a maybe. Chris Ryan, definitely not.
A muppet. A five year old. Anyone. Please make him stop.
This is a must read weather you are a novice or a season trader. It is like a bible for every trader.
I highly recommend this book to ANYONE who wants to make money in the market. Don't listen to current media reports on the stock market! Listen to Bill O'Neil, he knows the real truth and tells you REALLY how to manage your account.
"disappointing little depth here."
disappointing this book would be okay total beginners. but for those looking to formulate a serious strategy will need to look elsewhere. The lengthy tiresome metaphors pad out the little content. Like many audio books this fails to go into the depth necessary to really master the subject. moderately entertaining but no real content here.
