Shabby
The only good thing about this books is probably the cover, really don't even bother scrolling through reviews since this book isn't worth spending any time on.

Old School
I don't write many bad reviews, but this will be one. I read this book many years back and didn't find it all that useful. It's actually quite outdated because everything moves so much FASTER these days. With all the quantitative black boxes around these days, the news gets disseminated in seconds. You might be able to use the "news" to your advantage if you have a Bloomberg Terminal. Besides that this book isn't really worth reading. I really do like Maria Bartiromo. Just stick to reporting.

If you want some toilet reading before watching Suze Orman
I read most of this book (the parts I could stand) while at a public library. Maria, in spite of her good looks, is not a source of financial commentary that should ever be trusted if you are seeking to understand the true architecture and mechanics of the financial world. Like her show, there's plenty of puffed discussion on stocks, sectors, indices, etc but she is not giving solid advice in any realm - fundamental, technical, capital flows, etc.

Avoid.

Dont bother.
Simply another marketing exercise of tying a book, any book, to an attractive face with some media exposure to make some quick money.

Not much difference between this and a Life Philosophy book by Vanna White or a biography of Britney Spears. The content is basic new investor instruction that you can find done better and for free at Web sites like Motley Fool and others. Very badly organized with lots of extraneous material … this book is at least two rewrites away from an acceptable first effort. Look elsewhere, friend.

Borrowed from friend
Borrowed from friend, wish I hadn't. It really is trash.... as the other reviewers pointed out.... I just don't see how any of this can benefit a trader..... It's important to note that Maria is not a trader but a reporter so why should I take her advice on trading unless I know her track record. She's just using her celebrity status to write a book she has no business writing about.

Just a quote....
Well I saw this review on amazon - so I quote:

1.0 out of 5 stars It's what the book DOESN'T say that counts., October 17, 2001

By A Customer

This review is from: Use The News: How To Separate the Noise from the Investment Nuggets and Make Money in Any Economy (Hardcover)

Maria Bartiromo is not a money manager. She's a reporter, and one without any real insights of her own. After all, this is the woman who, when asked if the market was in danger of crashing about a year ago, blithely replied that in the Internet age, a correction that used to take 2 years to complete could be over in 2 weeks. But don't blame poor Maria. She was probably just repeating what somebody told her the day before.

So if she doesn't have insights of her own, what exactly did she put into this book? Mostly comments by other people. In fact more than half of the book consists of lengthy quotations from Maria's Wall Street cronies. But what sort of people cozy up to the media on Wall Street? Why, it's the marketing and PR people of course. So there you have it. It's no accident that so much of the book was devoted to relentless name-dropping. After all this book is mostly a marketing campaign for Maria and her friends on the Street.

That doesn't mean that everything in the book is false. In fact, most things said in the book are true. But as with most marketing campaigns, the problem is not what they tell you, but what they DON'T tell you. The used car salesman may not outright lie to you, he just won't mention that the transmission has been rebuilt. So don't expect any deep, incisive expose of Wall Street practices in this book. When people talk to a reporter, they won't say anything that's bad for their firm. When a reporter writes a book, she wouldn't say anything that makes her sources look bad.

What's in this book is also in many other books. Save your money.

End Quote
