Goes through 10 good fundamental rules (ratios) for selection of a stock portfolio. I liked the rules and methodology. Hey, it's NOT a get rich quick scheme. It's a disciplined approach which I like. Some of the supplemental material got into some investment instruments (including shorting and futures) that are probably not appropriate for most individual, retail investors as they can be like playing with fire or a loaded gun.
Did make reference to Sharpe ratio a few times without explaining. It's a measure of risk-adjusted return. Should have included a bit of discussion since it was referenced more than once.
I found the narration a bit too spritely for my taste for this subject. Hey, it's just my perspective that I would have appreciated a dare I say a more stoic tone in this work.
I was provided a free copy of this book in return for an unbiased review.

Very, very elementary principles for the totally uninformed beginner. It was disappointing in that it spends 2 chapters talking about setting up software, and then through most of the book it goes into the software the author wants us to use. There are perhaps 15 minutes of useful info, and even that is very basic value investing strategy that just about everyone already knows.
Poor intonation, difficult to tune in to.
Very poor explanations.
Almost entirely a sales promotional tool for "portfolio123"
Recommend "The naked Trader" by Robbie Burns instead - very much better all round!
