Reader's Thoughts


Cramer walks you through his television program in fashion allowing the viewer to profit from his tips. The real value here is Cramer's methodology for trading, not necessarily his picks. Cramer's writing style is entertaining but makes the book much longer than need be. Read it selectively. Best chapter is what to look for when he's interviewing a CEO. Again, it's better read for what Cramer looks for and, therefore, what you should look for when you listen to company's leadership spout and tout.


Everything you've ever wanted to know about investing in the stock market. I was an investing newbie when I read this book. Almost a year later I am reading it again for the 3rd time and still soaking in Jim's plethora of information. He walks you through every step of doing homework on your stocks. He also gives great advice on buying and selling in increments.Using his advice I feel empowered that I can effectively manage my own money and not have to depend on mutual funds and pay those mutual fund fees.


This book is essentially the Cramer handbook for his TV show. It does offer an updated business cycle chart and a research checklist that are extremely helpful for the private investor.


OK, if you're into risk, loud, obnoxious guys who give tips on TV shows that are fast and furious (and like the cars in the movie his suggestions, if you don't take them with a grain of salt[after all, it's TV, it's entertainment], will only help you crash and burn). At one time I was thinking of investing in the stock asset class; however, after further review, it's too risky. And unless you have millions to burn (read hedge fund), and lots of homework time, real estate is your only choice. Cha Bra! Peace out!


Super book on investing for the little guy. Cramer explains everything from trends, to cycles, to sectors, and how to anticipate the market's movements. He explains the intricacies of the show, as well as how to game it yourself. He gives you all sorts of handy strategies for trading, as well as a cyclical chart to follow the economy's impact on the stock market.B/B = BUY


This book basically reviews things learned in his first book Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World. I suggest reading the first book and skipping this unless you're one of those people falling for the 'Cramer effect.'


How can you not love this guy? I started watching his show, he's a lunatic, and he has me now learning how to invest. He really explains it well to those of us who aren't in 'the club' and calls people out when needed.

Very good book and a must read part of the series. It is making me a better manager of my investments and has helped me make money when everyone else seems to be losing money.


While many people think Cramer is obnoxious, he really understands the details and intricacies of Wall Street. He breaks The Street down into understandable and coherent points without losing the big picture or the overall story. Investing is truly all about the story. After finishing the book.....Yes, the book is framed within the concept of his TV show. But that does not prevent him from providing simple, easy to follow methods for researching and analyzing stock. This is a good book for any level of investor.


Another great investment book by Jim Cramer. This book contains a plethora of information regarding the stock market but is not so in depth as to confound the reader. If you are looking to learn how to invest in the stock market I would absolutely recommend this book as well as Cramer's "Real Money" and "Stay Mad for Life" books.


I was expecting to learn more about investing from this book. I did learn some new things but the book itself felt more like a companion to the show with no real information. This book basically walks you through how the show works, which seems more like an instruction manual.Maybe I starting reading this book with the wrong expectations but I would say this is only meant for die hard of Jim Cramer.

This book gives investors who want to manage their own money the "HOMEWORK" to achieve a better return. I have been investing on my own for over 7years and have learner allot from some of these principles.

Kind of an awesome book and gives great advice, I don't completely understand it but I think I'll be ready for the Stock market next year. Jim cramer,w ho's also on Tv helps explain what to invest in. He helps explain in what to do when it comes to doing your hw and making sure that you limit yourself when it comes to buying. He tells you when to buy and when to sell. He gives accounts of bad and yet good calls he made when it came to buying shares.

Joseph Young

Besides a little too much self promotion and useless preamble, this is a decent book for people who know little about the stock market but have always wanted to get into it.


The show is a lot better than listening to his book on CD. His voice has a fingernails on the chalkboard effect when you are not physically watching him on TV. Good content...tough to listen to.
