Format: Paperback
I see this book as a manual for good investing. Besides explaining in understandable words some of the financial jargon for the beginners, Jim Slater states clearly what he thinks are the key variables and ratios to keep an eye on.
His explanation of how these figures work together and correctly evaluate a growth company is very convincing.
One of the great books for good investing, without any doubt.

Format: Paperback
As a newcomer to the world of equity investing I was looking for ways of picking shares to make me money. This was driven by my first efforts at picking shares, which contained more dogs than Battersea. As I was reading round the subject of shares the name Jim Slater came up time and again as a well respected, knowledgable and successful dealer in shares and his book "The Zulu Principle" was recommended in a number of places.
Being the cyncial type I was relucant to believe the hype. However Jim Slater sets out a simple, yet effective way of selecting ordinary equities that will produce extraordinary results. He outlines a system that give a good framework to come up with quality shares, makes the maths involved looking at the finacial figures easy and has a good track record.
My only criticisms are it seems a little dated now (his examples are up to ten years old) and the book will not pick the winners for you! An excellent book to give would-be investors a method for sorting shares.

Format: Paperback
In my view,'The Zulu Princple' is Jim's most encompassing,informative and enduring work - indeed,as far as fundamentally inclined stockmarket books go,there are few i know of on either side of the atlantic with anywhere near as much to offer.
I dont agree with all he says,most notably his personal opinions on charting,but overall,the insight he gives on sectors,earnings-power,management and so forth,mean the only nutshell word i can find that sums the book up adequately,is this : excellent.
In fact,what 'Technical Analysis of Stock Trends'(Edwards/Magee) is to technicals (i.e.teaching you WHEN to buy),the 'Zulu Principle' is to fundamentals (i.e.teaching you WHAT to buy) - enough said !!

How to be a sensible investor 21 Jan. 2005
By D. Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is, as it goes, a beginner's book. It explains what a share is; what statistics are calculated and used to help to gauge the value of a share, and so on.

However, even if you already know such things, you should still read this book. It teaches common-sense investment. I suppose that, maybe, common-sense isn't something that is taught, but it can't hurt to stop and think about why you are (or aren't) buying a particular share (stock).

So 5 stars for the book - it will help you to keep your feet on the ground, which is a necessity for any truly good investor.
