Publisher's Summary

Peter Lynch, one of the most successful investors of all time, shows you how to use what you already know to make money in the market. You'll discover why smart money is not so smart - and why you may be a better stock picker than the pros, how to follow your hunches and back them up with facts, how to disregard reports on the economy and pick your own time to buy and sell, and how to determine which types of stocks are right for you. Lynch is the former manager of the $9 billion Fidelity Magellan Fund, where he earned investors a $190,000 return on a $10,000 investment.

Learning a lot.

Lynch gives some great insight into using your life's experineces as an "edge" into finding stocks, and then shows you how to research those stocks, and what to look for before choosing to invest. Finally he shows how to identify when to sell.

I've already listened to this book three times through. Each time I get somthing new from it. It is like drinking from a fire hose. I'm not sure if this is due to the abridgement, or if an unabridged version would take even more useful information and pack it even more densely into this book.

Peter Lynch does an excellent job of narrating his own book. An author narrating his own book can always be hit or miss... Lynch is a hit!

I wish he told about where to find free sources for the detailed stock research he suggests using. I'd hate to spend money on the paid services for my first few small investments, as it'd eat up any potential gains.

A must read classic

I enjoyed this book, althought I was expecting more advanced concepts (since I am in the investing business). Nevertheless, Peter Lynch does a great job at summarizing his investment perspective in an easy to understand manner. This book is aimed at amateur investors, and is a good place to start if you are interested in investing by yourself. But even for professionnals, I think everyone can learn from Peter Lynch. A must read for everyone interested in the stock market.
