it was amazing
bookshelves: economics, favorites, money

This is the bible of investigating. There's a lot of advice in there, most of which is applicable to new and older investors. You don't have to be rich to become rich, just smart and careful. I would not recommend this book to someone who's completely new to the stock market and investing. Read up some 101 books first and then this content will be more useful. Do not skip Jason's commentary as they add more value with updated examples.

One thing I did not like about Jason's commentary was that he used the 1999 boom for almost all his examples. In my opinion that was an outlier and result of a lot of things, there's definitely a lot to learn from it, but Jason should have diversified his examples a bit.
