I found Sethna's book unnecessarily vague and difficult to read.

Also, if you are a subscriber, there is a large amount of useful information on the IBD website at Investors.com.

I was very excited to find a book that was going to give me more ideas on how to pick stocks using IBD.

For those who enjoy William O'Neil's newspaper INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY and his book HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN STOCKS, INVESTING SMART is a worthwhile book. In short, this volume is a clearly written, well organized introduction of how to use IBD in stock picking. My guess is that the book was written for those who do not know too much about the newspaper; frequent readers who already fully utilize IBD's wealth of information will probably not find much here. Even so, this book still might be valuable to them as a refresher course. The only gripe I had was that the book largely seemed like a watered-down version of CANSLIM, O'Neil's renowned system to finding winning stocks. Those looking for innovative approachs to using IBD's material, hence, may be disappointed. For them, this book might have value anyway as a useful supplement to one of the best stock-trading systems in existence.

Being a student of William O'Neil's CANSLIM method of stock selection I found this book tiresome to read mainly because I know the subject matter so well. Dr. Sethna was certainly long winded and rambling in his writing style and could have said what he did in a third of the space he used. If you desire to learn about William O'Neil's methods purchase his book, "How to Make Money In Stocks." Lastly, Investor's Business Daily has added many new features since Dr. Sethna wrote this book so some of the information he shares about the paper is dated.

Format: Paperback
I did not read the book but I did look it over carefully. I was hoping it would be a clear step by step guide to using IBD to apply the CANSLIM method. There is so much information in the paper that it is not easy to apply all the techniques in an efficient manner. There are almost too many choices and directions possible. This book is not a step by step guide nor is it all that clear. I did find it to be unnecessarily wordy and vague. It just seems to go over the whole paper in a long winded fashion but does not get down to the nuts and bolts of "Smart Investing" as I was hoping it would. Refer to William O'Neil's books for better guidance about how to invest. Also, if you are a subscriber, there is a large amount of useful information on the IBD website at Investors.com.

I was very excited to find a book that was going to give me more ideas on how to pick stocks using IBD. While this book did give information on IBD, it never got into anything I found helpful in really using to pick stocks. All the author did was present information I already knew by reading IBD myself. Also this was not a pure IBD product the author attempted to mix in several authors advice and techniques into this work by quoting them verbatim. The book was very dry and hard to read and I do not think beginners or veteran traders will find it helpful. It was written by a doctor, who may be a great trader, but I did not like his writing style. I would advise reading all of William O'Neal's book and stick with IBD alone to teach you. Find your stock picks in the IBD 100, you do not need this book.
