The narrative makes you believe you are actually at Victor Chu's mom's kitchen table sharing some food and talking about investing. The use of informal, every day language makes it very comfortable to read. By relating investing subjects to food and cooking, it brings cognitive ease to this otherwise complex subject. Another nice thing is that there's a box at the end of each "visit" (chapter) with the most important points discussed. It also asks you to do some homework, simple tasks that can h ...more

I figured that since I'm getting a bit older, I should probably have my finances in order. But it was always so daunting to get started. I don't know what I don't know. So what do I even ask about? And how then do I learn more?

Low and behold the Wall Street Kitchen, with its title that just spoke to me as I happened to see it on the bookstore shelf.

Victor made it really easy for a financially clueless individual such as myself to feel comfortable exploring my investment options. His content help

The motherly advice and practical knowledge contained is this book isn't taught in any schools - and it SHOULD be!! Book contains slight humor presented and is an easy read, making it suitable for men and women of all ages no matter the financial background. Excellent read if you're serious about making money in stocks.

I particularly enjoy the concepts of economics and the stock market explained by the author in a casual tone of voice - across the kitchen table. It helped me understand how to be a more savvy investor and definitely gave me a totally different/safer perspective of the market. I used to be a speculator in the market, flipping stocks day in day out, thinking that is how to play the stocks but after reading this book, I realize that what I was doing was only 'acting busy' and not actually getting ...more

This first person folksy story tells how an immigrant to Canada used savings to invest in the stock market. Ignore penny stocks and invest in blue chip stocks. ”Mom” started with investment in banks and transportation before moving onto pharmaceuticals. The main strategy after the initial investments is to use any gains to either reinvest in the company or to diversify and invest in other companies. Throughout there are references to do your homework, buy low, sell high, and maintain course duri ...more

I love the author's way of telling the story, cleverly combining stock investing with yummy home cooking. Chiu quickly sets the atmosphere from the beginning by inviting you into his kitchen for some tea and snacks, then presents his information in a very logical and easy to understand way. Overall a fun book to read as it empowers all of us women to be more like Mom!

Investor behavior is unpredictable and so are the markets. This book clearly demonstrates these facts and also provides constructive, yet down-to-earth solutions on tackling these uncertainties.

Self-published non-Fiction books from relative unknowns have a potential credibility gap. Does this person really know what they're talking about? Of course just because a publisher decided to put a book out doesn't mean it's credible. So ultimately we're left vetting the information based on prior knowledge, common sense, comparisons to what others say on the subject, and what our “gut” tells us to think.

Based on the criteria above, I found the advice given in Wall Street Kitchen to be solid. T

To be honest, this is not a book I would have picked up on my own as it is not a topic I have spent much time with, but I was happy to be chosen as the narrator to produce the audiobook and really enjoyed reading it because Victor has an easygoing and engaging way of writing. I was also really impressed by the content and his simple yet effective "recipe" for investing. I have not been a big investor, but now I'm thinking of starting each of my daughters off with $1,000 to invest using the advic ...more
