Just an alright about investing book for novices
This book covers the basics of investing, but by no means does it give enough in-depth information for any level of decision making. The whole strategy is simplified to the point of being too vague to offer any information to all but the most novice readers. Despite reading this book, I invested my money with his TDIMG strategy and was rewarded with a -10% return over 6 months when the SP500 went up 40%. You may not be able to judge the book by it's cover, but in this case, one can judge the money manager by his book.

Well thought out
Timeless book on discipline and structure. A little light on how to actually implement. We all know we need to be disciplined. We just need a guide of how to do it.

Overall pleased
It delivered on a number of fronts. While not being in-depth on any one subject, it offered a good foundation to base further learning.

Basic Quantitative stock screening, and where the investor/trader can get a robust screener at no charge.

Financial definitions and application of those definitions i.e. GARP, PEG ratios, GICS,

Basic Technical Analysis - When the investor looks at a stock/index chart what does he or she see. The basics of trending, breakouts, and basic patterns are addressed. This is not a technical analysis book, again it is a basics book. If the reader would like that, there are a number of great in-depth volumes on the subject.

Basic Fundamental stock review - Reviewing the Balance Sheet, Price-to-Book and Debt to Equity Ratios are addressed.



Risk Management - As a professional trader, I see this as the most over looked aspect of investing for most people looking to invest.

Options- a basic overview of what an option is, and how it works. It is not a lottery ticket, it is a risk management tool. The book offers a few basic strategies for their use.

Mutual Fund - Overview of performance, expense ratios, and how to sort between the thousands of mutual funds.

This is a book I would feel comfortable giving to my mother, children, or friend looking to learn more regarding a variety financial topics. It covers many topics, and the unassuming 232 pages makes it an easy, non-intimidating read.

Lastly, it is a nice introduction to any of the topics the reader would like to explore further.

Balances the playing field.
As a financial planner myself, I was a bit skeptical about Mr. Horowitz's methodologies, but I must say that given the current market conditions and the totally changed investing landscape, the buy and hold approach of yesterday no longer applies.

Tactical moves in an ever volatile market with the disciplined approach that Mr. Horowitz's espouses can be just the thing to balance the playing field. Through listening to his podcast and now reading his book, I can heartily recommend this well written and detailed approach to investing. It's not for the faint of heart though, as option strategies and other sophisticated tools can be overwhelming for those not committed to taking the time to really understand the material. If you are, then this book can be just what you need to get going and better understand how to handle the investing landscape.

Very brief coverage
It's partially my fault for not observing how short the book was before I ordered it - and the book is very short. Faster readers can easily devour it a single sitting.

If you are an 'intermediate' level investor the book probably won't be that helpful, although it will probably cover a few things you don't know. My complaint is that the coverage of each topic is rather terse, and you will feel like you need to read another book on the topic at hand before you can apply any of it. For example, the chapter on quantitative boils down to demonstrating how to run some screens. I am quite certain that quantitative investing gurus use a wide variety of mathematical techniques other than running screens. The coverage of technical and fundamental analysis is equally weak.

At best this book provides a simple and brief coverage about most of the major topics you should probably be aware of as an investor.

Great basic investing education
Andrew's book is a great starting point for investors. It is a solid starting point for those newer to the markets who need an overview.

It was a bit on the basic side for where I am in my trading education - but it's the one I buy for friends and family who need something to get them started.

Great value - excellent for the price! Subscribe to Andrew's Podcast as well - he does a good job. Look for The Disciplined Investor Podcast and DH Unplugged (Unscripted conversations with Andrew and John C. Dvorak.)
