STOCKS ARE THE NUMBER ONE MONEY-MAKING INVESTMENT TODAY. HERE'S HOW YOU CAN MAKE MONEY IN THE MARKET!

Peter Lynch has been called "an investment superstar" (Fortune). Manager of the $9 billion Fidelity Magellan Fund, he has earned investors a 190,000 return on a 10,000 investment over the last twelve years. Now Peter Lynch shows how you can make a profit on Wall Street with the knowledge you already have. Discover:

• Why smart money is not so smart -- and why you may be a better stock picker than the pros

• How to follow your hunches -- and back them up with facts

• Why you should forget everything you hear about the economy and how to pick your own time to buy and sell

• How to determine which kinds of stocks are best for you

From price-earnings ratios to cash assets, from low growth stocks to "The Twelve Silliest Things People Say About Stock Prices," here is a powerful guide to investing -- from "one of the greatest investors to ever buy stock" (Barron's Financial Weekly).

    " There are very sound fundamentals in this book, but after awhile it becomes a bit repetitive. It takes a very logical approach to investing, and shows you that you don't need to have a fancy degree and work on Wall Street to make money. It's about not being intimidated and basically buying what you know. "

    " This is a good book for someone who is one the fence about how to invest. Lynch encourages individuals to take control of their financial situation rather than just leaving it in the hands of others. His message is simple and full of common sense, invest in what you know. Everyone is an expert in some area, whether it is their job, a hobby or a lifelong interest, and because of that they have an advantage over almost everyone else when it comes to investing in that area. Lynch focuses on finding the "ten-baggers", the unknown or unpopular stocks that have the greatest potential to net you a big return. This book will remain on my bookshelf with easy access as it has some valuable chapters I can see myself revisiting. At a time when it seems like investment professionals and financial experts are on every street corner, it's nice to read a book by some who's been there done that, and done it consistently, long term and with great success. "

    " A great read, from what appears to be from a truly honest insider with little to lose. This isn't one of those nickle "make me a million" books (contrary to the title), it's a good narrative of the system we often hear talked about on the news with little real information. "
