Very Very Old - One Cannot Read It

I bought the one that says “Good Xondition”. But It’s VERY VERY OLD. You don’t get a feeling to read it when you open it. It’s that old. It is one of my first orders. I need to research on returning options.

Great for a newbie

I am very new at the investing game, and pretty much know what your average couch potato does... I found this book to be very interesting and easy to read. Peter Lynch seems very down to earth and humorous and his tips are pretty basic and easy to follow. Considering the topic (which I assumed would put me to sleep like the History Channel!) I was quite surprised when I found I couldn't put it down. I would recommend it to anyone w/ a basic interest in investing.

Learn from the Master

Lynch's success comes not from his complex algorithms and estoric financial modeling, but from opening his eyes to the world and noticing good businesses.His success at Magellan is attributed to his ability to find good companies, at reasonable valuations, and be patient enough to watch them climb.This book is much more specific than his other release. Here, he provides detailed accounts of stock picking strategy, including how to choose from different stocks, when to buy, when to buy more and when to sell.This is a quick read, but there is a huge amount of information that the average investor can use to their benefit.

If you lust for stocks and lust for money, Lynch will help

My profession is writing, but my business is investing. With over 50 years of experience in the stock market and having made millions, I think I know what's up. Not only is this book definitive on stock picking, it is also fun and easy to read and the author's humanity comes right through. And the core message that you can do better than the fund managers (for a variety of reasons) is, from my own experience, true. Try Lynch's system: What worked for him, might work for you. Oh yes, by the way, this book is mainly a repeat and better version of his previous work and represents a more masterful and confident telling of the ways to beat the street.

I did not know a thing about investing until I read this.

This book was reccommended to me by my stock broker, and I decided to read it because I knew nothing about investing. I was scared to get into investing for fear of losing money. I read this book, and learned how to pick winning stocks, and since reading it,I opened an account, and I am up 75% since beginning investing in January 1998. the book is written so that it is humerous at times, and not technical, it is written in lay terms. If i can understand it, anyone can.
