From the Dragon's Den: the secrets of investment success is revealed. From modest small-town beginnings to fame on the runaway hit TV show "Dragons' Den", Richard Farleigh has built his hugely successful career on smart investments. Whether it was the managing the trading desk of a Sydney bank or investing in a fledgling technology company, the same clear principles have guided him throughout. Now, for the first time, Richard Farleigh is sharing the techniques and strategies that took him to the very top. And it's knowledge that no investor, large or small, amateur or professional, can afford to be without ...
Bought this after hearing Richard Farleigh speak, tremendous guy. This is the softback version of his Taming the Lion book & is better value. Great book with priceless advice on different types of investments from a hugely successful, and nice, guy.
Most private investors concentrate upon equity markets and property. This book opens the reader's eyes to the opportunities available in all the major markets, including bonds, currencies and commodities; taking positions both long and short. It is, if you like, a DIY hedge-fund manual, written by a highly successful, retired hedge-fund manager. It contains a blue-print for successful speculation and its genius lies in its simplicity.
This is a nice book which gives you some basic concept about investing. You will NOT be able to trade or invest after reading this book though. The 100 strategies are not strategies so the title is misleading, 100 are just the short chapters of the book. Richard Farleigh is all about fundamental analysis but he does not explain what the fundamentals are, he just says "things that impact substantially the market"...thanks a lot... He does give examples of some of his trades but nothing more. So my advice is, read this book for pleasure and than buy other books if you are a serious trader/investor.
Richard Farleigh provides a vast amount of useful information here. The discussion of the dangers of trading/ investing should be essential reading for anyone considering major investments. I would have liked some mention of short selling however.
I'm not sure what made me buy this book in the first place. Richard Farleigh may have made lots of money from investing and I still don't know how he did it. When I first read it, I thought this book would take time to get used to it. Then I tried to read and understand it again. Maybe I am not very clever. Basic problems with this book are; font to small to read comfortably. Most of the time Richard Farleigh used words and "invester talk" that a novice does not understand. I took it to read on the train again today, give it one more try. But I ended up leaving on the train. There is not one point of knowledge I took from "100 Secret Strategies..", they remain a secret to me.
Richard Farleigh should stick to investing, not writing books.
