If you could sum up The Successful Investor in three words, what would they be?
O'neil is great when it comes to technicals. If you are new to stocks read his books. Then, when you are comfortable, move out into Fundamentals, and then Keynes or Soros. There is much in this game of investing, technicals are just the beginning.

Would you try another book from William J. O'Neil and/or Alan Sklar?
Yes, I have read O'Neil's other books and this provides additional information and newer interpretations. However, the last 3/8 or so of the book is O'Neil advocating his extreme right wing view. This time it's taxes, a few shots at Clinton, and some advice to his Republican following.
I would still but the book knowing that almost all of the second half is political I would still buy it. I don't have to like his politics to profit from his advice and research. I have made a lot of money over the years listening to him and this new book adds some new useful advice.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
His investing advice. His political rantings.
What does Alan Sklar bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Not really sure.
What did you take away from The Successful Investor that you can apply to your work?
Some various new ideas for screening stocks.
