Clem Chambers plainly knows what he’s talking about, and much of this book contains sound common sense which can be summed up as ‘due diligence’. His website ADVFN is an excellent source of information about the stock market – perhaps one of the best free websites available. Having said that, I have some reservations about this book. Many of his 101 suggestions have a certain repetitive quality. Some of his suggestions are implausible – one of them is that one should telephone the CEO or financial director of a company and speak directly to them. If they’re not available, they might be doing something more important than speaking to me about whether I should invest £500 in their company. If they are available, they’re unlikely to offer an unbiased opinion on the merits or otherwise of their company. On the positive side, the book is easy to read and cheap, and reinforces the ideas of good practice. The graphs and charts are of poor quality – which is a common problem with kindle editions of this kind of book. In summary, not too bad a book for the price, but it’s unlikely to teach you anything you don’t know unless you’re a complete novice. And it’s a good advertisement for the ADVFN website if you haven’t already discovered it.

On the whole, brilliant. For example, he says that the best yearly gain you can hope to average is 25 - 30%, a blow to those who want to become a millionaire tomorrow - most of whom end up in Poverty Street. And don't put too many of your eggs in one basket, never mind what Warren Buffett did - he has very rare abilities.

The big themes come through time and time again, but with different slants, different ideas.

This is not a get rich quick book. It is a guide for managing a large portfolio of stocks.

The large portfolio (number of stocks) should be every investors aim.

Included are multiple ideas for picking stocks to buy.

This book gets straight to the point and carries on going, strength to strength. The book is packed with great ideas and would definitely recommend it to everyone who currently invest in shares. The only bad thing I would say is that the book could explain its ideas more, but with 101 ideas to get though in a small book I cant really complain about lack of detail.
