Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 2/17/2014

    " jim cramer makes the foray into personal finance advice, most of it is sound advice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 2/16/2014

    " I'm a sucker for these types of books. This one was okay though I felt it could have easily been 1/2 its size while getting across the same information. Easy reading for financial stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul | 2/12/2014

    " The basic idea I got out of this book was to take my 401k money out of the "lifecycle" fund for my target retirement and move 100% (Cramer advocates 0% bonds investment in your 20s, and then 10% more every decade from there, which sounds reasonable close to my conventional wisdom) of the funds into a passive index fund with the lowest management and/or administrative fees that i could find. For my plan, this turned out to be the Dreyfus S&P 500 index. Cramer liked the Vanguard S&P index better. I thought I wanted to do more with managing my retirement funds, but since there seems to be so much work associated with it, this was the easiest move. My lifecycle fund that I was in had management fees close to 1.25%, cutting into my money!! Other than that, the book felt a little dated. I'd be curious how much, if any, of his advice has changed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roger | 2/6/2014

    " Still reading this book...not too exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 1/28/2014

    " My boyfriend is forcing me to read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacque | 1/20/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book and learned that Jim Cramer is a lot more compassionate than he looks! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 1/11/2014

    " I didn't actually finish. The economy went south and it no longer made sense to finish this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elise | 1/5/2014

    " Yes I know I know...he's crazy (and yes, I saw John Stewart's interview with him for those who feel compelled to message me and tell me that he lies etc., which by the way I think is a simplistic view of the situation b/c surely people who just do what he says and don't think for themselves and are willing to believe that any stock investment could ever be a "sure thing" bear some personal responsibility for the losses they suffered....but I digress), the fact is, he's made a shit ton of money, and I'm putting money into a 403(b) and I have to figure out how to manage it. This is just one book of many I'll be reading on this subject and I don't plan to take what he has to say as gospel truth (when have I ever done that with anyone come to think of it....). I'll update my review when I finish the book, but in all honesty, so far I've found it informative and helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 1/3/2014

    " I was actually surprised by how reasonable this book was after watching Mad Money. A good book for those seeking to have a better understanding of how to preserve (and build) wealth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin | 1/3/2014

    " The content wasn't what I was looking for. I was hoping for more discussion on stock trading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candice | 1/2/2014

    " Discs 2 & 3 have held the most interest for me, they pertain more to my situation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven Clark | 1/1/2014

    " I feel this is a must read for everyone, it is loaded with easy to understand financial information that is useful to anyone. I would highly suggest it as a highschool grad present...let try to help them before they get into bad habits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Chin | 12/28/2013

    " In terms of literary quality maybe this wasn't the best book ever, but I learned SO much - the basics of what I think I need to know to actually do things with my money that I can understand, that are simple, and that will help me save for the rest of my life. Thank you, Jim Cramer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brendan | 12/22/2013

    " A great book for anybody that wants learn about retirement plans, the stock market or mutual funds as well as just getting out of debt and staying out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 12/17/2013

    " Great book, makes difficult financial concepts easy to understand for the lay investor.(stocks, mutual funds, etc.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 12/17/2013

    " Fast, light read. Good ideas but DON'T follow his advice blindly! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 11/23/2013

    " You know, I got used to Cramer's brash voice, and I got used to his direct style, so perhaps my not finishing this (audio)book is my own fault. It's all good advice, just somewhat overwhelming, even though his whole point is to keep you from being overwhelmed. Maybe I'm just not ready. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 10/3/2013

    " Skimmer, now that it is couple of years old. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter | 8/30/2012

    " I suppose that the yelling doesn't translate perfectly into book format. Try a larger font. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 4/3/2012

    " Cramer provides a very understandable overview of finance. He gives some interesting tips. A good read...especially for a young adult wanting to be set for retirement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 1/25/2012

    " Cramer provides some simple tactics for diversifying your portfolio. He provides great insight into investing strategies that anyone can take advantage of, regardless of age. Stick to the stock market when you are young, wait for bonds until you are older and more settled. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thor | 1/6/2012

    " A pretty basic investing book, useful only if you've never read an investing book before. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillian | 10/24/2011

    " I love this book so much I recommended it to tons of friends and bought a copy for my little brother for his birthday. It doesn't talk down to readers, but is very, very readable and easy to follow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 8/7/2011

    " the guy's brash but brilliant. i have read lots of $ books, but this is for the people like me - interested, agressive, but dont know jack squat about what to really do and invest in. a quick and comprehensive read, pick it up. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lebeau Potgieter | 8/4/2011

    " Awful book. How can you take this guy seriously. He has no fiduciary responsibility to anyone. His job is to sell books so he says what he has to to get that done. "

    " Great book, very helpful advice on 401k's, IRA's mututal funds and various long term stocks. The author does a good job of explaining his concepts and logic for picking one fund/stock,etc... over another. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candice | 1/15/2011

    " Discs 2 & 3 have held the most interest for me, they pertain more to my situation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kashif | 1/15/2011

    " Good tips on how to invest for life. Also lists some 20 stocks worth buying, as well as 13 mutual funds. I was surprised to read how much exposure he recommends to stocks versus bonds, even at a late stage in your life. Now if only I can start following the advice in this book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lebeau | 12/1/2009

    " This book reviews the Cramer view on investing for long-term wealth. I think for the novice there are many good suggestions in here. Even with Cramer's bias toward individual stocks to generate wealth, for me and most of my friends, he agrees that index funds are the way to go. "
