I take Cramer's advice with a grain of salt. The reason is, I'm a mutual fund guy, and I don't buy a lot of stocks. That said, I always pay attention to Cramer, because he's the smartest stock mkt. pundit out there, he doesn't follow the crowd, and he's not afraid to stick his neck out, by making recommendations that could easily come back to bite him in the ass, as some inevitably do.
The book analyzes some new trends that most people aren't aware of like stealth technology, which is how non tech companies use tech to revolutionize their companies. Examples are Amorall's use of clothing that wicks sweat, dries fast, and stays warm, Doninos Pizza's use of online ordering, etc He also discusses which companies should break up, and why. And the notable 20 best CEO's.
Cramer does a good job of reading his book, although he has an annoying habit sometimes of talking too loud, which probably helps hold interest on TV, but hey I've already purchased the book so I don't need someone shouting in my ear to hold my interest, like that right wing gadfly Rick Santelli.
Very informative and entertaining. It kept me interested throughout. Cramer gives sincere and motivated advice to invest in stocks.
I only write a review if a book is really great.
Very annoying performance that turned me off and made me lose any trust in what he's saying.
Promoting his tv show heavily and possibly his CEO friends.
Would really do himself a favour if he has someone else read his book in a more credible fashion.
I have over 500 books in my library
Yes for me because i cant stay focused enough to read a book for a long period of time
Experience,emotion,perspective,the feeling that may not be convyed if it were someone just reading it
Cramer know’s his stuff and all of his books I have found helpful to learn about companies,markets,investing and trading. His analysis and experience,in the field is much needed as you sure wont get many insights from so called guru’s that operate behind tightly locked doors unless of coarse you pay 3.5Million to have dinner. ;)
Easy to understand real world application.
Cramer is passionate about teaching the basics and helping you make money.
This is a book best suited for chapter by chapter study and review.
Jim is very smart and fully understands the market, however his voice makes me want to fall asleap. I still haven't finished the audio book. Jim you're a VERY boring narrator. informal info in book, but boring to listen to.
If you want to be a disciplined investor, take Jim's advice in this book. Not necessarily the actual picks of stock, but the logic behind the madness. Mr. Cramer keeps this topic interesting throughout the book.
