“Get Rich Carefully” written by James J. Cramer, host of CNBC shows Mad Money and Squawk on the Street is a book that doesn’t offer the secret recipe to get rich overnight, but a book with which you will be able to learn useful things that might help you to increase your profits. Being aggressive in selling, while slowly and with caution earning.

He starts his book with quick analysis that within last three years U.S. stock market had four separate run-ins with politics that caused people to lose

Same old same old. If you listen to him every day you get 90% of what's in this book. It's nice to have everything in one spot though and you can go back and see if he is right. He currently rates a D on, but knowledge is always a good thing.

Excellent romp though the markets, what moves them and how to pick them. Cramer opens up about the many mistakes he's made over the years which is the most interesting reading to me. Great read.

I bought this because I saw an interview with Cramer where he talked about the tests he applies for finding good growth stocks. This is thoroughly discussed, and very much worth reading.

This is a good book about what you need to know in order to invest, and where to find it that information. The book is loaded with information and insight throughout It's definitely worth your time even if you have read umpteen other investment books, as I have. A good summary at the end of every chapter.

Full disclosure: I watch Cramer regularly when he appears on CNBC and Mad Money and I have read most of his books. He is not always right, but he calls it the way he sees it based on his years of experience on Wall Street.

He is loud and goofy, but he believes in investing in individual stocks rather than relying on "professional" money managers. The antics are designed to keep people interested.

If you are willing to take the time to do the homework, this book will help you select stocks to help
I don't always agree with Cramer, but I like his philosophy: do your homework, find a good company, and buy it at a discount. This is 400+ pages of investing advice that is as densely packed as Cramer's show.

This is definitely worth while for the novice investor, but may only deliver a few points to those with experience in the market. The technical chapter is light for the experienced, and may be a little confusing to the novice. The bankable 21 CEOs chapter can be skipped. But the rest is dece
I love Cramer. I know I shouldn't, but I do. That said, this is the first of his books that I've read. I liked that he gave great, specific examples of companies that are fundamentally good investments; I also don't like that he did it, for fear that the book could wind up irrelevant if something goes terribly wrong with one of these companies. Also, this book is definitely for people who have been investing for a while and are familiar with the fundamental analysis that goes into investment dec ...more

Good practices and I learned a lot. I did get stuck halfway through... I just got tired of the long winded rants which are entertaining on TV but get long in a book. This would have been an amazing book if it was consolidated to 250 pages vs. 500.
John Johnson
I loved this book. Before reading this one, however, I would recommend Cramer's "Real Money" first. In Real Money, Cramer goes in depth into the nuts and bolts of evaluating a company and a stock. Once you have done your homework (i.e. followed the steps to evaluate the stock), then you are ready for the information in "Get Rich Carefully." In this book, Cramer identifies different conditions that might lead to fast rises in stock prices. There is a lot of great information here, along with many ...more
They say America loves an apology and this book is a good example of that. I found the book to be pretty densely packed with advice, but I couldn't really get over the fact that this is basically Cramer cashing in on his own apologetic narrative for his participation in and perpetuation of the "reckless investing" of 2008. If you've ever seen the interview Cramer did with John Stewart in 2009, you'll understand how hard it is to hear Cramer ask whether I'm "Tired of phony promises about getting ...more

Great book! Loads and loads of great investing advice! Cramer tells it like it is!
Devin Mills
Great resource. Turn to it often for investing guidance!
I'm a fan of Jim Cramer.
I listened to this on audiobook, and the constant yelling was a bit much. However the tips, tricks and analysis were very helpful!
Steven Davis
Ok, a lot of right now. I like more theory.
Excellent book. Very insightful. I learned a lot reading this, in fact, it now has a permanent place on my reference shelf. Everything is explained clearly with anecdotes and figures for reference. Buy Buy Buy!!!

Recommends it for: Stock investors
Shelves: non-fiction
If you invest in stocks, you must have this book. Cramer is one of the few stock analysts that admits his mistakes and tries to figure out how not to repeat them.
Interesting and informative read written in Jim Cramer's one and only style...covered a wealth of new material.
Good current advice. I highly recommend the audio book version of it as Jim Cramer is the reader and does it so well.

“But the portion of the forecasting I care the most about is the direction given on future gross margins, because that can be a true indicator of what the business can earn in the future. The gross margin guidance is what will be used to try to figure out next quarter’s earnings estimates. That will set the benchmark that has to be beaten next time.” 0 likes
