Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 4/1/2011

    " Much better than I expected considering it was dated (even revisions). For reasonably new investor I think the book covers a number of basic strategies, while being pretty objective. At the end of the day though it remains somewhat a pitch for their strategies as an investment group. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 3/16/2010

    " Interesting read, however I have been convinced that investing in single stocks is risky and the best way to invest is with mutual funds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee | 2/9/2010

    " I would never have guessed that a book on the stock market could be witty and amusing... but there you have it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 1/8/2009

    " Good reading if you're ready to start reading the financials of a company. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 8/19/2008

    " Easy to read - they explain EVERYTHING while keeping the subject light-hearted (and occasionally funny). Also, it makes investing much less daunting...of course, I haven't made an actual investment yet, but I am doing my homework! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 3/26/2008

    " I could have been more dedicated to this book, but sometimes it was dry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 2/28/2008

    " Really good intro to stocks. Explains why mutual funds might not be the best route to go "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lowell | 2/6/2008

    " While well written, one is better off investing in index funds and paying attention to the principles of Asset Allocation.

    The Dogs of the Dow theory has been debunked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 2/1/2008

    " Thrilling! just jokin. Not thrilling. Informative and easy to read. This one stands out from any other Wall Street books Ive attempted to read. This is also the only one I've ever finished! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 12/13/2007

    " Good starter investment guide for those looking for growth stocks. Too bad half the book has already been debunked (Foolish 4? How foolish to think it would be so easy). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 9/25/2007

    " A fairly basic investing guide, which cleared up a few questions I had. Beyond that it didn't contain information that I haven't already read in other books, articles, blogs, etc. "
