5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS BOOK!, 17 Dec. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Financial Times Guide to Selecting Shares That Perform: 10 Ways to Beat the Stock Market (The FT Guides) (Paperback)
5 stars and a title of ...'buy this book'. Difficult to justify when I don't feel that this is an easy reading bed time book or particularly pleasant so why the rave review?

This book is prescriptive, it cuts through ALL the niceties and pleasantries and tells you what to expect and then 10 different methods to successful trading tailored to, I should think, all different personalities and types of people.

Hanging onto the tails of successful investors, finding those people or funds with exceptional long term performance and how to emulate them. Reviewing the charts/trends for a company over and using the business documentation to establish how this growth has occurred, sound business theory or a bubble type bull market?

Looking at the specifics of shares which perform in different markets, different capitalisations and different times and reviewing how they have performed and how you could have analysed them. Examples included profiles and discussions on Jessops, Filofax, Fortune oil etc etc.

A difficult review, yet at the same time the easiest I have ever had to do! This book is great and worth 5 stars all day long every day. If you intend on trading in stocks and shares then this is a MUST. Just dont expect to lay in bed and enjoy a 5 minute read!
