Great for Investors of all levels

If you could sum up How to Beat Wall Street in three words, what would they be?

A sensible approach to investing - no get rich quick ideas here - no just - sensible but vital information that any investor should turn to, to get better returns from their investing strategies.

Who was your favorite character and why?


What about John Eastman’s performance did you like?

Great performance - keeps the listener engaged.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The mix of both technical analysis and fundamentals are well weighted - this is important especially for new investors (before they pick which of the 2 paradigms to follow).
There is a place for both strategies - you can be a better investor by reading the chapters especially on market ratio timing!

Any additional comments?

The author has done a great job to get all the information an investor will need. Its up-to you to put the systems to work - reread chapter 1 and 5 twice then repeat every 2 months - it will save you so much time and money - if only this book had been out 10 years earlier .

Trading platitudes

Compilation of investment conventional wisdom. Contrary ideas without any context. Reads like a glossary of terms and techniques, lacks the credibility of practice.
