The Turnaround Experience: Saving Troubled Companies
The Turnaround Experience: Saving Troubled Companies
Price: £4.49

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but quite an old text and older industries, 17 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although it says copyright 2013, the acknowledgements were written in 1995, and many of the tables referred to were 1990. You will not find much , if anything at all in here about more modern businesses such as software companies. The book contains some useful information for the kindle price.

For both the patient and the family it's a welcoming read. It is inspirational and is realistic on what will happen and what needs to be done to get well. Thanks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors, 17 July 2016

Too many simple errors. I actually liked the style - straight and to the point but not worth the money. Ignores key Information required when trading crude oil.

I read it in a day and was expecting more for the money! There were also annoying errors in several of the tables. Some of the content was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Technical Analysis, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent book. Mr Bodek understands the issue very well. I read Michael Lewis's book (excellent) on HFT, then Scot Patersons book on a similar theme then ended up at this book which really nails the issue. Any authority who reads all three books will realise there is a serious problem in the markets. Supply and demand in the old fashioned sense do not drive the markets any more. Basically - HFT's and MM's playing silly little games and sucking the life out of the markets will kill the markets unless all markets jointly fix the problem. One exchange, and a level playing field where research and analysis leads to "safer" investment decision making will suit us all much better. its hard enough as it is but these days buying shares in the markets is like throwing your money into a pool of sharks where what happens next is more down to psychological games being played out in the market. Shake-out's, bots selling 20 shares to knock a price down, delayed trades etc ... what chance does the guy on the street have?


Fundamentals of Investing in Oil and Gas
Fundamentals of Investing in Oil and Gas
by Chris Termeer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.39

3.0 out of 5 stars Not an investment book, 24 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
3 stars because for the price it is a worthwhile purchase - and covers plenty of ground but at a much cheaper price than the other similar books on market. However this is NOT a book on investing in the oil industry - the title is wrong. It a a worthwhile read about what would be best for you to know if you are to invest in the oil industry. Armed with the book you will probably understand more when you next get that RNS or read some of the BS on the bulletin boards. More on offshore drilling would have made it 4 stars. The correct title 5 OR 5 if it contained real advice on investing in oil and gas. Six stars !! if it covered new frontier regions such as some parts of South America e.g Uruguay, Falklands, and West Africa e.g. Namibia, Morocco etc and how the majors need to start getting acreage in these new regions which has been bought up by the smaller independent oilers. M&A anyone?

The Scramble for African Oil: Oppression, Corruption and War for Control of Africa's Natural Resources (New Politics, Progressive Policy)
by Douglas A. Yates
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Page turner, an eye opener, 30 Dec. 2012
I have developed an interest in Oil Exploration and wanted to read wider than simply how do you get it out of the ground. I was not prepared for what I read but now having completed this excellent piece of work I can safely say that I will never look at the industry in the same way ever again. Nor will I look at oil politics, colonialism, or neo colonialism in the same way ever again - these terms were known to me but I never really paid any attention to what they REALLY meant. An outstanding piece of work that will become a reference piece of work - to be read over and over again - especially by me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Out of the box - did not work, 29 Dec. 2012
Unfortunately my purchase did not work. Time-consuming episode where I checked everything multiple times. Not a great first introduction to this brand which I have never tried before. Draw your own conclusion on whether I will try it again.


Bear Essentials: The Secrets of Forensic Accounting and Profitable Trading
Bear Essentials: The Secrets of Forensic Accounting and Profitable Trading
by Simon Cawkwell
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars 10/10 For Humout, 5/10 for lessons learned, 3 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hilarious in parts - so much so that I shall no doubt use some of them and claim them as my own! There are some 'reinforcers' in that it told me things I had figured out so realised I was not on my own in thinking a certain way about aspects ot the market. Its called bear essentials, but it is just about bare esentials. If you want a laugh then its worth a read. Pithy - but pity it could not have had some more useful details. Its also a bit out of date and some of the companies he mocked actually are now very strong indeed - others he nailed and are extinct. At least he knows what he is doing, and trades for a living which does come through loud and clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb.Succinct., 30 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fantastic book. Easy to read - although with some technical aspects I am unfamiliar with (not being in the Oil Industry). Key aspects I needed to understand, I found, digested, and am happy with the investment! Well done to the authors!
