Publisher's Summary

How do we find hot stocks without getting burned? How do we fatten our portfolios and stay financially healthy? Former hedge-fund manager and longtime Wall Street commentator Jim Cramer explains how to invest wisely in chaotic times, and he does so in plain English, in a style that is as much fun as investing is, or should be, when it's done right.

For starters, Cramer recommends devoting a portion of your assets to speculation. Everyone wants to find the big winners that can bring outsized gains, and Cramer explains how to allocate your portfolio so that you can afford to take this kind of risk wisely. He explains why "buy and hold" is a losing philosophy: For Cramer, it's "buy and homework". If you can't spend an hour a week researching each of your stocks, then you should hand off your portfolio to a mutual fund, and Cramer identifies the very few mutual funds that he'd recommend.

Cramer also reveals his Ten Commandments of Trading (Commandment #5: Tips are for waiters). He explains why he's not afraid to compare investing to gambling (and tells you which book on gambling you should read to become a better investor). And he discloses his 25 Rules of Investing (Rule #4: Look for broken stocks, not broken companies).

Cramer shows how to compare stock prices in a way that you can understand, how to spot market tops and bottoms, how to know when to sell, how to rotate among cyclical stocks to catch the big moves, and much more. Jim Cramer's Real Money is filled with insider advice that really works, information that Cramer himself used to make millions during his 14-year career on Wall Street.

Written in Cramer's distinctive turbocharged style, this is every investor's guide to what you really must know to make big money in the stock market.

What the Critics Say

"[Cramer's] enthusiasm should prove inspiring, and even investors on the wrong side of Wall Street's recent shakeups may find the courage to get back in the game." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great book but quite heavy"

    Lots of great information in this book, but probably not a lot that you will use unless you really want to get deep into the market.

    Mad Money goes even deeper if you really want to get into trading rather than investing.

    If you want a more passive approach to investing then read Rule #1.

    "Very Advanced"

    I loved this audiobook. This book is FULL or great information. However, I was very suprised at how in depth his approach was to explaining how the market works. I am a finance major in college, and have spent many years trading as a professional, and there were many new insights for me. This is definitely NOT the first book you want to read in regards to the market. Unless you are for real and you have an insatiable thirst for stock trading knowledge, read something else first.

    "Great Advice"

    Cramer gives some great guidance on investing. Great ideas, very good presentation. But I would temper his enthusiasm by listening to "Fooled by Randomness" as well. The two balance each other very well.

    "Great basics"

    Mr. Cramer definitely has an engaging delivery though it can wear on you after awhile. He has some great ideas and advice. He's not modest though if he's done everything he says he has, I don't really care. He shares valuable insights from someone with Wall Street experience telling you what happens on the inside. He makes succint points with examples to reinforce them. His book is good for the new investor trying to decide how to start playing the stock market. It's worth reading.

    "High Energy!"

    I'd heard of Jim Camer but wasn't familiar with his trading style. Jim did an excellent job with the narration and certainly kept my attention. I like his style and I learned plenty from this book. Thanks Jim!

    "Good Audiobook, but actual book would be helpful"

    This book is read by the author, Jim Cramer. His energy and excitement brings to life his book. Although the information is great for some and others will hate it (depending on if you are a buy-n-hold or "day-trader") seeing the words in print would make it easier. If you don't have a lot of time to read, but spend a lot of time traveling in a car, then it would be beneficial to use the audiobook for the information and the book as a reference.

    Story
    "Love It"
    What did you love best about Jim Cramer's Real Money?

    It's good to listen and learn from such a successful investor. Good basic information. He has a broad knowledge of the market. Not a narrow approach to investing at all.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Who writes these questions???


    Which character – as performed by Jim Cramer – was your favorite?

    Jim Cramer!!!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Jim Cramer's Real Money?

    I have listened to this book about five times and continue to study the techniques. I'm finally making some money in the market now. Mostly Cramer gives you information and really encourages you to do research, or as he says, homework.


    Any additional comments?

    Best information about investing I've read/listened to. I have become a big fan of Cramer. Not only read his books but read his articles everyday and listen to his TV program every chance I get. I'll have to admit that his goofy antics on the program initially made me skeptical but he has a very broad and common sense approach to investing. If you are a logical person, you will begin to see logic in his approach. He's an acquired taste!!

    "Cramer's investment guide book read by Cramer"
    What made the experience of listening to Jim Cramer's Real Money the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What does Jim Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.
