5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent investment book for small private investors, 11 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Up on Wall Street (A Fireside book) (Paperback)
I've read quite a few investment books and this is one of the better ones. When I first started reading investment books, I naively hoped they would tell you exactly what to invest in and when. They don't. Nor can they. At the end of the day it's up to you to make investment decision using your own talent. The most you can hope for in a book like this, is to take you as far along the investment decision path as possible, give good practical advice and help you avoid making silly mistakes. On this basis, "One up on wall street" is one of the best I've read (the worst incidentally is "Rich Dad, Poor Dad"). This book is especially helpful for those (like myself) without specialist financial knowledge. It explains how you can use everyday knowledge that we all have to pick stocks and explains key financial data in a simple way. More generally, it reads easily and is quite short (roughly 300 pages). I would recommend it if you have a small portfolio and have limited financial knowledge.
