Reader's Thoughts


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.


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.


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.


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.


This book is useful if you watch Jim's TV show (or listen on satellite radio like I do). The primary purpose is teach you how to get more out of watching this show and it delivers. It is really only useful for Jim Cramer fan's. I know a lot of people don't like Jim because he is a "trader" or "flip-flopper", but you can't deny that his is full of good ideas. That is why I watch him.


a more coherent read than real money, if you're really interested in his stock investing advice, this is the better book to go with.


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.

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.


Jim Cramer is my hero. In today's information age, Jim is the voice of reason and experience. He provides the average person the means to succeed on Wall Street. If you are thinking about investing, then read this book and then read it again. In this book Jim discusses how to interactively watch his show.


I listened to the Audio Book, and while it was nice that Jim Cramer read the book -- I thought the content wasn't so hot. This guy can't pick stocks any better than anybody else, and you're probably better off on your own than taking advice from him.


I read this because I find Cramer's show very entertaining and had just finished his auto-biography (which was excellent). This book, however, is pure crap. You could tell they threw this book together simply to capitalize on the success of the show. It's barely 200 pages, only because they (I say "they" because I have no idea who wrote it--the cover says Cramer wrote it, but the writing was nowhere near the quality of Cramer's) kept adding fluff. There's only enough content for about 100 pages, if that. There are also typos galore. If it took any more than a few hours to read, I would have stopped reading.


i listened to the audio book and really enjoyed it. i need to get the book and/or watch his show. he seems to have really sane advice.


I can't really say I read the whole book, but I read enough to get an idea of it. He prefaces this book by saying that investing in the stock market on an individual stock basis (not mutual funds), is only for those who have a solid financial base and at least $10,000 to "play" with. Since this doesn't apply to me nor to any of those I want to help with finances, I decided to just skim the book and not give it a thorough reading. It was sort of a review of the micro-econ class I had in college.


First of all, be sure to read his "Real Money" book before you read this one. This book will give you a bit more background on his TV show. However, the updates that he suggests in this book makes you realize that writing a book about investing isn't that helpful because market investing is such a dynamic scene.


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.'
