Format: Paperback
This dual authored 249-page book McGraw-Hill paperback covers different investment styles. It is divided into 10 chapters and includes a 15-page appendix of on-line investing resources, and 100 useful Websites, as well as a 9-page glossary. One unique feature is the inclusion of Psychological Quotient (PQ) Charts that can help readers ascertain their investment style and, thereby increase their odds on selecting the most appropriate investments.
The authors put forth the theory that if an investing strategy does not fit a person's personality that he/she will not stick with it for very long. Therefore, they provide a selection of currently used investing strategies together with the personality traits needed to execute the strategy successfully.
According to the authors, the investing process encompasses stock selection, timing of entry and exit points and portfolio management (asset allocation, number of holdings). However, they point out that the strategies for picking investment vehicles depends upon the investor's style of investing.
The authors point out that if an investor can use a systematic investing approach while maintaining discipline that he can more than double the annual return compared to random investing.
The authors created PQ charts. They rate each investment style on a scale of 1 to 10 for each of ten personality traits. These traits are: discipline; patience; risk tolerance; reward expectation; volatility tolerance; time horizon; time commitment; quantitative skill; charting skill; and investing confidence.
Nine specific investment styles are reviewed. The four major styles are growth (high risk/high reward); value (hunting for bargains); momentum (where the action is); and technical investing (using charts).

Format: Paperback
I have read this book cover to cover. I have also read 2.5 other starter books. This is by far the best one. You will not be ready to make millions after this read, but you wouldnt be after only one book anyways. Some other books I have read are Bill o'reillys how to make mony in stocks. This book is much better for a non biased oppinion, O'riellys book seems more concerned with trying to sell you his strategy and in turn investors businness daily. My only criticm is that it doesnt go to in depth about any one strategy, it is more of in intro to all of them. This is exactly what is needed for a first book however and thats why it gets five stars. Be prepared to buy another book after this one sparks your interests. Be cautious about other books that try to get you all hyped up and ready to lose alot of money proclaiming themselves as the holy grail.

This book will get you to think about what investment strategy is right for you and provide you with the resources to start developing a plan. The subtitle tells you the contents: "The Key to Getting Started." It's meant as a guide to lead you in the direction that suits your personality. It's nice and compact and the writing is very clear. Also, the book provides great resources for the next step (though some of these may be outdated; I haven't checked them all). Amazon's recommendations based on who looked at this book are excellent, too. As the authors point out, having a strategy, any strategy, complete with rules, is better than no strategy at all, and this book will help you think about what strategy is best for you. There are many successful investors for each style, so don't buy into the idea that buy and hold (or buy and hope as some would say) is the only way to go. The most important thing is to have a plan and then have the discipline to trade the plan.

Format: Paperback
When I was just getting into stock market, this book helped me shed some light on the stock market. This books is not about how to improve your trading skills or stock picking skills. It is a general reference book on methodologies and practices used by different groups of investors, traders, mutual fund managers, hedge fund managers, etc.

The book is very easy to read and follow through.

By Pat on September 7, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is the first book a beginning investor should buy! When I first began trading I didn't have a method to my madness. I would watch CNBC or Mad Money and do what they said to do. I would also listen to ideas from friends (who were actually losing trades themselves!). I read books on technical trading, volatile stocks, shorting, options, - my style was a mess, incorporating everything - and I was trading a lot. The old saying, "the more you trade, the more you lose" was true. I was losing money, sleep and probably hair too! But things changed for the better when I was turned on to O'neil and I starting using the IBD system. It helped by giving me some rules. This was working. HOWEVER, there were things about this new style that I didn't feel very comfortable with. It wasn't quite right for me.

When I bought this book (About Stock Market Strategies ) back in 2009, it was the KEY! So important because it showed me that there are many styles, all with their own rules that can work. But it really depends on your personality. You have to find what kind of style fits you. We all want to make money. Some of us are willing to risk more for higher rewards. Some of us want to find a good company at a bargain price. Some go for what's hot right now and try to ride the wave. Some are into the technicals - and you also can be a mix of these, a style surfer. This book shows you the only wrong answer is choosing a style that doesn't suit your personality or temperament. Of course this book doesn't delve deeply into any one style (how could it?), but shows the big picture of each, and helps point you into the right direction for your goals.

I thank the authors for providing such a simple yet crucial book!
