“Bears make money, bulls make money, pigs get slaughtered” is a statement I have heard many times from Jim Cramer(the host of Mad Money, mentioned in this book). It is one sentence that really says a lot about the stock market. Knowing how to choose a quality company, who is controlling the market, the bulls(optimistic), the bears( pessimistic), and oh yes, not believing Gordon Gekko(Wall Street, greed is good), provides an average investor the opportunity to make money over time. I am not a new investor, but continue to read books that provide different stock market strategies and perspectives. This book is full of simple advice that hopefully convinces investors to not let emotion control their decision making as well as how to be a disciplined investor. The author makes suggestions for those who state they don't have any disposable income to invest( do not smoke or drink, carry your lunch to work, look for free entertainment, conserve energy, and many more). Deciding to invest in the future requires discipline, but historically, the rate of return on your portfolio makes it worth forgoing some things now to ensure a better future(how many people dream of early retirement but don't have the funds). The author covers the pros and cons of hiring a financial planner, holding stocks for the long-term(at least 10 years), buying when everyone else is selling, as well as investment principles and strategies. Personally, I didn't learn anything new from this book, but as I said, I am not a new investor and always try to do my homework before buying or selling stocks. I did though get validation for some of my own personal stock trading decisions. I think a new investor would find this book a great introduction to the stock market as it is an easy read that doesn't rely on technical jargon(which really was over my head when I was a newbie). I received a DRC from BookBuzz.net through NetGalley.
