Gets good for a few chapters in the middle. Investing advice with quotes about Buffet are completely off. Ex. He'll say something like Buffet says buy when everybody is fearful. 'So when Buffet became fearful of the economy I saw an opportunity and BOUGHT'. Very scary and irresponsible how he encourages the average person to put money in stocks, or commodities, or index funds, 'depending on the current market'. He says to be careful, but he reads like shitty version of Cramer.

I got this book mainly due to the fact it was autographed and on sale. But with that said the title did intrigue me especially in the bull markets that have been in place since the end of the recession in 2009. As of the writing of this review the markets are still high and I think anyone's guess is as good as the next to where it will go. I enjoy Mr. Terranova on CNBC when he talks so I did not think there would be no good reason not to read the book. And he does put some very interesting conce ...more
This book is one of the vaguest investing books I have ever read. I think the bottom line is to have a plan that you are capable of emotionally sticking with. I do like his hard stance on being very distrustful of anything dropping through the 200 day average. Looking back I could have avoided some of my biggest mistakes on that advice. I have already reaped the financial and emotional return of implementing this. I am also trying to implement the trading journal and becoming much more methodica ...more
Definite Easy read. Applying what you learn from this book can't help you really become a better investor; if you're trading off ideas/strategies you first read about in this book, I hope it's a paper account and you plan on studying up some more before you waste your money. All the "take-away" ideas/methods/strats, what have you, Terranova gives, can more easily be picked up and learned from the latest Market Wizards by Schwager.
As far as investment books is concerned....not my style. I finished the book only because I have a long existing "phobia" against reading a book only 1/2 way. You'll not find specific investment advice. I don't often criticize authors, but I could not escape the underlying feeling that the author is "full of himself". A big turnoff for me.
Great info. Very straight-forward approach to investing. Anyone with some background in finance and investing could easily pick up the tips that are listed by the author. Excellent quick read and a lot of good advice to put into practice from a successful investor on Wall-Street.
