Get's annoying and not that insightful

I love watching mad money so I wanted to purchase one of Cramers books. I understand how he can say that the concepts of the book are still relevant despite it being written years ago but really he is analyzing stocks in detail that are no longer relevant. Many of the stocks he recommends in this book have actually gone under or went private. This book is much more one that you would need to read within a year of it being written. There isn't much you learn here. I understand that you would find this same challenge with any investment book but if you read Peter Lynch, which is significantly older, his lessons stand the test of time and focus less on actual individual stocks. Cramer really puts too much emphasis on individual stocks as opposed to the concepts that make those stocks or strategies successful. Yes, he mentions some of that information but it is far too much in the context of the individual stocks. I would avoid this book, it is a waste of money. You are much better served reading the books of the people who really defined investing strategies such as Lynch or Graham. Not to mention he is actually wrong almost as much as he is right so it is hard to really take his advice too seriously. This book if anything is a good lesson in caution with listening to anyone who tells you to buy a stock without doing your own research.

I wish

I wish I would have read this book when it came out and invested in many of the companies mentioned In this book. I would be a lot wealthier than I am today.

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.

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.

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. ;)

Good Investment Advice, but a bit dated.

I've seen Jim Cramer for years on CNBC and generally thought that he was not a true economist because his television persona was over the top. I realized recently that there is real substance behind his bravado and I have been watching him nearly every day now. I've finally found someone to replace Louis Rukeyser as my financial guru! This book explains many concepts and the narration was not as histrionic as he can be on air. My only criticism is that many of the stories were from a very narrow segment of time so this book is rapidly becoming very dated.

Glossary

Something to help with the nomenclature would be extremely appreciated. One of the biggest problems, for me at least, is the different context in which one word can be used.

Needs to be updated

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

I love Cramer but...

The personality he brings on his show does not work well with the audiobook. I found the book tedious and hard to get through.
