Publisher's Summary

How do we find hot stocks without getting burned? How do we fatten our portfolios and stay financially healthy? Former hedge-fund manager and longtime Wall Street commentator Jim Cramer explains how to invest wisely in chaotic times, and he does so in plain English, in a style that is as much fun as investing is, or should be, when it's done right. For starters, Cramer recommends devoting a portion of your assets to speculation. Everyone wants to find the big winners that can bring outsized gains, and Cramer explains how to allocate your portfolio so that you can afford to take this kind of risk wisely. He explains why "buy and hold" is a losing philosophy: For Cramer, it's "buy and homework". If you can't spend an hour a week researching each of your stocks, then you should hand off your portfolio to a mutual fund, and Cramer identifies the very few mutual funds that he'd recommend.
Cramer also reveals his Ten Commandments of Trading (Commandment #5: Tips are for waiters). He explains why he's not afraid to compare investing to gambling (and tells you which book on gambling you should read to become a better investor). And he discloses his 25 Rules of Investing (Rule #4: Look for broken stocks, not broken companies).
Cramer shows how to compare stock prices in a way that you can understand, how to spot market tops and bottoms, how to know when to sell, how to rotate among cyclical stocks to catch the big moves, and much more. Jim Cramer's Real Money is filled with insider advice that really works, information that Cramer himself used to make millions during his 14-year career on Wall Street.
Written in Cramer's distinctive turbocharged style, this is every investor's guide to what you really must know to make big money in the stock market.

What the Critics Say

"[Cramer's] enthusiasm should prove inspiring, and even investors on the wrong side of Wall Street's recent shakeups may find the courage to get back in the game." (Publishers Weekly)

High Energy!

I'd heard of Jim Camer but wasn't familiar with his trading style. Jim did an excellent job with the narration and certainly kept my attention. I like his style and I learned plenty from this book. Thanks Jim!

Great book but quite heavy

Lots of great information in this book, but probably not a lot that you will use unless you really want to get deep into the market.

Mad Money goes even deeper if you really want to get into trading rather than investing.

If you want a more passive approach to investing then read Rule #1.
