To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm a completely newbie on this subject so I'll say that 95% of what I read here was new to me. Read it over a couple of days as it's really easy to digest. Yes, there's a lot of self promotion of the author's tools but is not like you'll be blocked if you don't buy them.
If you are looking for a book for beginners, this is it, am I imagine that’s why you are looking at it. Don’t pay any attention to the negative reviews, I see some saying that all this book does is “self promote” his other books or websites.. well yes that is true, but this book gives you everything you need for a beginner and he is also adding more resources for you to look in to if you want to explore other investing information which is actually great, I’m not sure why some people have a problem with him giving you more information and options but that’s why I say don’t mind the negative reviews. This book is easy to read and gives you what you need to know to start. I have been investing over a year (and done quite well) and never read anything and thought well it’s probably time to learn more, I have many books on the way but even though I don’t consider to be a beginner I wanted to make sure I don’t miss anything, and I can say I have actual Kay learned a lot, I guarantee you will learn something from this book, give it a shot.
I’ve been DIY investing for over the past 5 years, and I can’t ever remember reading a book so simple and yet so insightful at the same time. My returns have been great, averaging 36% per year and I can’t help but be relieved to know that my trading strategies have been similar to that of the author’s.
I wish I had a book like this when I first started investing and not the 300 page books like Peter Lynch’s One up on Wall Street that weren’t as simple in their explanations and as easy to read.
I read this book in about an hour and I would feel so confident to start trading after a couple days/weeks of reviewing its material.
As a wealth coach, I will definitely be recommending this book to my female clients and it’s resources in addition to what I already teach them.
It is a small book, with a big font and surprisingly some real good info for beginners. I read in the very same book that the author reads its review from time to time, so I'd suggest to have a compilation of links, maybe a full chapter only for this. Seems a bit weird to read something and all sudden "click here to...", but you're actually holding a package of pages.
All in all, book is good for newcomers, simple language, straightforward examples and some good quality tips.
