Publisher's Summary

The personal finance book of the year - Mad Money and CNBC star Jim Cramer's guide to high-yield/low-risk investing in a recovering economy.

Tired of false promises about getting rich quickly, promises that lead to reckless decisions, the stepping stones to the poorhouse? How about trying something different? How about going for lasting wealth based on thirty-five years' worth of insights from Jim Cramer, a grizzled stock veteran and host of CNBC's Mad Money with Jim Cramer . . . How about getting rich carefully?

Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully gives you the plans you need to make big money without taking big risks. Drawing on his unparalleled knowledge of both the stock market and about the mistakes and successes he's made on the way to his own fortune, Cramer explains to you, in plain English, why you can get rich in a prudent, methodical way, as long as you start now. In his own inimitable style, Cramer lays it on the line, no waffling, no on-the-one-hand-or-the-other, just the straight stuff you need to get wealthy - everything from the best long-term investing themes to the discipline you need to exploit them.

Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully may be the most invaluable book savers and investors could ever hope for: a tell-all that tells you all you need to know to turn your savings into real, lasting wealth in a practical and, yes, because it's Cramer, readable and entertaining fashion.

Great Stock Mkt. Analysis with Timely Trends

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.

Highly Recommend!

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.

Horrible infomercial-like performance

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.

Great as usual

Would you consider the audio edition of Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully to be better than the print version?

Yes for me because i cant stay focused enough to read a book for a long period of time

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

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

Experience,emotion,perspective,the feeling that may not be convyed if it were someone just reading it

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

N/A

Any additional comments?

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. ;)

Waste of time if you're trying to learn

Really a waste of time if you're looking to learn about how to invest.

Jim jaborjaws about stocks and gives insights that are 3 to 4 years old. Useless today.

Needs to be updated

Several of the ideas are good, but this book does not transcend time. Bottom Line, it needs to be updated.

Great book, Enlighting

If you could sum up Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully in three words, what would they be?

Great book, Cramer’s truth telling and explanations about investing has been tremendously educational and inspiring to me. I’m excited to put some of his lessons into practice with my personal investment strategies.
