Spear a decent share with the Zulu Principle,
This review is from: The Zulu Principle: Making Extraordinary Profits from Ordinary Shares (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.
