Cons - not much depth to information
Pros - its free and could be a good entry level book
I have to say that I know quite a bit about trading but even for a beginner there nothing really useful.
It contains some good advice on why you shouldn't just jump on the bandwagon, why buying low and selling high is not as easy or straightforward as it seems and what else you should take into consideration when deciding on which company to buy shares in. There's a few tables of companies that fit under something mentioned and actual Australian companies mentioned. The whole book would only take you about twenty minutes to get through, a lot less if you just skimmed it. What I do like about this is that it doesn't read like a high school textbook.
What this isn't, is a book giving you stock tips. It isn't suggesting any companies you should invest your money in or evaluating companies (like the main Top Stock 2012 book does) for you to make a decision to likely invest in after looking at current market announcements and so forth.
I found the Top Stocks 2012 Guide to Leading Australian companies book to be helpful, this one wasn't really as I'd read what was in this, in that one. Basically this is an excerpt from that much longer more detailed book. But as I said, if you're not going to buy that one, this might give you some good advice.
However there is not really a great deal of useful information here for either the experienced or the beginning investor.
The author mentions a number of different types of investing, however each is discussed in a superficial manner. Some of the tables that were thrown in seemed to come in from left field as well and did little to assist the reader to find the top stocks of this year.
The author discusses a number of different Australian Stocks (not so useful for our US friends) however they were given the waffle treatment as well.
From the perspective of the beginner investor it would be been useful to give examples and breakdown some individual companies financials and market data to make some predictions. Sadly, this was lacking.
