The book covered the basic of trading but all references where to the UK. After he initially scolds the reader he did a good job of setting some nice general rules for trading. the last part of the book revolved around UK only information which want at all useful in Australia. Well read and engaging and would be a great book if you traded or lived in the UK. Calve off the front and back and use the rules in the middle.
Cuts out the BS and uses simple English, perfect for the beginner trader. I have over 100 books about trading and this is by far the most informative.
This is NOT for day traders. This is for swing traders where the average position is 1 day - 3 months+
If you follow the advice and do your research on the companies you buy, you will be on your way to becoming a very profitable trader.
this was a great book. Very informative. I also like the author sense of humor. Only issue, everything was pounds versus dollars but information was still good
"So glad I've listened to this"
I gambled before in forex and really didn't have a clue. I decided to have another look though this time mainly at shares.
This book is very informative. It cuts out the crap! You need to research before buying a share. Simples. A bit like buying a car/house; it needs a bit of forethought.
Robbie's laid back style is evident in this book and he explains some financial gobbledygook in an easy to follow way.
I'm now paper trading (no money needed!) and then I might give one of Robbie's seminars a go before investing properly!
"Brilliant ! Thanks Robbie!"
I liked listening to this book so much I just bought the paper back version! I don't want to recommend it because I'm worried everyone will get in on the secret !!! But in all fairness it's really good and I think I will also purchase Robbie's book on Spread Betting!!
Thanks Robbie !
"The best book for UK beginner investors and traders"
I first bought the first edition audio book which I listened to many times and then bought the hard copy third edition and then bought the audio book fourth edition after read many other books on investing. I keep coming back to this book to check I am not getting into bad habits.
This book covers the basics in an easy to understand language, moves onto to more intermediate concepts and then provides plenty of techniques, tips useful tools and websites as well as mistakes to avoid to get the most from your investments.
Most books on beginner investing are American, so this UK book is invaluable for UK investors or those looking to invest in UK shares.
The fourth edition audiobook has some editing gaffs in the new sections that have been added such as coughs, paper shuffles and retakes, but does not detract from the content.
"Great book for beginners"
I always thought trading was some dark art, but it's broken down so clearly in this book.
The last two hours are a bit weak. 90min of analysis on reader stories is a 3/5. The last half an hour seems like he's rambling. Also they seemed to have stopped quality checking the audio just before the last two hours. Long pauses, paper rifling, repeating sentences.
All in all great book! Have bought a copy for my partner as well as a paperback.
"A must read, helped me in many ways."
I had zero knowledge of the stock market and until I read this book. Explains all the basics really well and easy to understand.
must read for any new trader, encompasses the important principal of simplicity. as Robbie recommends alot of additional reading/ learning is necessary along with this book as it is not a complete how to but is an excellent contribution towards successful trading.
Enjoyed first time about to start again from the beginning. Subject matter excellent, narration well done. Look forward to round 2
clean and simple trading lingo that is easy to utilise in real time. highly recommended for beginners and those at it a long time. heavily into FTSE shares but principles can be seen on NYSE
really good and sound advice in this book, however it would be beneficial to have a paper copy as so much that needs highlighting!
"Good book, bad editing of the audit."
I already had the 2nd edition of this book, but thought the 4th edition might add something. I'm not sure it does to be honest. I wouldn't 'upgrade' again.
Saying that, this is a brilliant book for those wanting to look at trading/investing in shares. Covers a lot of ground and is full of real tips and examples.
I've listened to the book 3 times now.
However, the narration on this is a little messy in places. The narrator repeats sentences, with the obvious intention of editing them out later, but a whole lot seem to have been missed towards the end of the book. There's silent gaps filled only with the rustling of paper, and numerous attempts at pronouncing tricky names. Pretty messy for a full price purchase, I'd claim it was faulty and immediately after this will claim my money back and stick with the second edition.
