A great investment primer. Many books you read will just try to tell you how to divide your money between different kinds of mutual funds; this book looks at a much wider spectrum. The 'experts' in the book offer advice that is at times clearly contradictory to each other's; as a reader I felt free to pick up the advice that resonated with me and develop my investment strategy.

Recommended before a dive into stocks, bonds, mutual funds, CDs - if you read this book you will really know your option...more

The library didn't have the book I wanted, so I picked this one out on a whim. All the book consists of is sixty or so essays by successful investors and businessmen passing along pithy words of investing wisdom. Some of the advice is common knowledge, such as the importance of diversification, keeping some money in cash for a rainy day, and that if an investment seems too good to be true, it probably is. But there is some inspired advice in there. I took several pages of notes while reading the...more

I've recently been thinking a lot about investing: how to start, the true definition of the terms we hear, and just generally what I should be doing now, while I'm young, to prepare myself financially for my future. I had been doing some research but was really wanting to just hear people talk casually about the topic. Did you ever have that experience in college? Where you sat through lecture for an hour and felt like you got nothing from it, only to step into the professor's office for five mi...more

only buy stock with money you can afford to lose, check filed records looking for value, buy when fear, save, diversify, manage risk, to benefit people, no emotions, simple transparent fundamentals, what is brand purpose everything changing, 50% of something not 100% of nothing, fear shame anger selling is harder than buying.

Interesting advice from many successful investors, but considering the date it was written makes you wonder how many would have said something different if it had been written post-market crash.

Being a beginning investor, I probably need to continue to follow the advice given by many of the experts to purchase an index fund instead of individual stocks.

Not necessarily a good book for a beginner such as myself as I'm sure the advice would make much more sense to somebody who was familiar with th...more

I'd classify this closer to interesting than I would invaluable. Nobody is going to learn how to invest from this book, but the all-star collection of advice will give you reinforcement of a few truths, perhaps none more repeated than "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." I'm an investing novice at best, but I can't say there was one statement that stood out as revelation. I'd guess that readers will find little if anything new here, just validation.

There is some great general advice in this book, but so much of it focuses on the stock market that it gets a bit annoying after a while if you're not interested in investing in the stock market. I noticed that while some of the experts contradicted each other, a lot of them tended to say the same things as well, so that was interesting. I'm glad I read this book but it's not my favourite financial advice book.
Mohammed Belyamani
Good and concise book... give the redundancy of the concept a good taste to see different items clearly. Diversity, quality stocks, and long terms are the main values to keep in mind while you are building your background and experience in the world of investment.
Jeff Carpenter
Although this book is a little dated, it still contains some good information. Although the economy is nowhere near as good as it was when this book was written, the principles discussed in this book could still apply today.
Susanna
Read this book three times and absolutely love it. A great personal finance book. Highly recommended.

Nothing but common sense. Short but not much substance.
