My Review:

A critically important book for these times. This is a must-have if you are a serious investor. If you are a dabbler or are yet to start your adventure in stocks, then this book may not be for you yet. The key aspect of this book is that you MUST own it if you have any significant play in the stock market. At this point, for most people with good portfolios, is they rely on an 'expert' to tell them what they need to know. This book changes that dynamic forever. This will be a must-own to every person who invests in stocks.

Phillip B. Chute has created a very readable book that is organized in an effective fashion. Each chapter lays out a clear definition of what is being discussed. The format for each chapter is similar and that allows the investor to key on the chapter that relates directly to his/her interest. This is not stock tips for dummies. This is an intelligently written book that gives the intelligent investor a chance to know what his broker is talking about...possibly for the first time.

My Rating: 5 stars
