What would have made How to Make Money in Stocks Success Stories better?
They have the marketing on this book all wrong, they should be issuing it for free to readers & receive payment for each reader from the business it is advertising.
But, since they haven't done that the next best thing would be including some sort of refund button for getting your money back.
What was most disappointing about Amy Smith’s story?
Honestly, I couldn't even stomach listening to more than a few chapters before the whole 'attend this group to be successful' approach wore too thin. (kind of had this really 'culty' like vibe too the thing). "True success stories' were advertised, but in the few chapters that i listened to, one or two trades winning trades were mentioned, but no in depth look at the traders or investors lifestyles as a whole was examined and no concrete mention of how successful they were on a whole.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
This book sparked disappointment. I basically wasted my money on one massive advertisement for some investment/ trading paper issued in the US.
Any additional comments?
If you are interested in trading strategies, there are better books out there.
If you are interested in lifestyles & susses stories of everyday investors or traders, there must be a better book out there than this.
If you are interested in subscribing to a newsletter outlining what stocks to buy and when, skip buying this advertisement & go to an information night to find out what is is about.
Never thought that I would be doing this but going to look into how I can return this one!
use with books that are recommended. otherwise the book would be less than useless. thanks

Skip it ...save your time and either read William O’Neil’s book or listen to his audiobook, but skip Amy’s audiobook/book. worthless!
it's basically a sale pitch for IBD. it's not even the real book. do not recommend it.
This book just promotes IBD. Introduced me to CANSLIM but that's it. It just talks about other traders success and teaches very little. There are a lot of other books you could spend les money on and get a lot more value. upsetting as I expected more knowledge and less commercial. The Acronym IBD and the company itself is mentioned at least 200 times if not more.

This book can simply be described as an advertisement to buy "How to Make Money in Stocks", which is an excellent book and considered one of the modern day must have investment books. Unfortunately this book adds little if you have already read "How to Make Money in Stocks", and just reiterates points. The common theme is: 'so-and-so' lost money in the market making these mistakes, read "How to Make Money in Stocks", applied this principle from the book, and lived happily after after.
