About the Author

Peter Lynch managed the Fidelity Magellan Fund from 1977 to 1990 when it was one of the most successful mutual-funds of all time. He then became a vice chairman at Fidelity and more recently has become a prominent philanthropist particularly active in the Boston area. His books include One Up on Wall Street, Beating the Street, and Learn to Earn (all written with John Rothchild).

From AudioFile

This primer, released 10 years ago, offers an accessible lesson that all young people should hear. The principal author narrates like the self-assured celebrity he is but does not sound like a professional. However, this is still an important audio because of Lynch's grasp of why certain companies are successful and how to find them. His advice on methods for selecting stocks is priceless and curiously challenging--he promotes activism and involvement rather than simply dictating his way of doing things. The abridgment is seamless, making the production short enough for the typical young person's attention span and in-your-face enough to make young people think hard about where they're putting their money.

Having listened to Peter Lynch's "One Up On Wall Street" and "Beating the Street," I found this tape to offer almost nothing new except improved narration from Peter Lynch. You're better off getting one of his earlier works.

great book; gives a nice history lesson on the beginnings in the US that they conveniently leave out of schoolbooks

It's a bit dated now but I enjoyed Peter's works and bought it to listen to during my drive times.

I can't recommend this book unless you're just a fan of Peter Lynch and want to read another one of his books. I would definitely recommend his other books "One Up on Wall Street" and "Beating the Street." Those are solid books with great information that will help you become a better investor.
This book consist of long chapters that talk about the history of capitalism and the history of corporations. It goes into detail about how the banks started by a combination of Europeans and Americans. There were some interesting stories but they have nothing to do with the technique of investing. I also believe if you want an overview of the stock markets history and capitalism there are better books. This book is a bit dated and doesn't offer a real education on the topic.
There were also some statements made that turned me off completely such as, "slaves and servants didn't need to a salary because there was nothing to buy." I'm paraphrasing the exact quote. I get what they were trying to say, that people in the early settlement didn't have as much to buy as we do today, but come on, that's not why servants and slaves didn't take a salary.
If you still want to read it, borrow it or get it from the library. It's too dated to have in your personal library. It doesn't stand the test of time and the history of capitalism is like reading history from a 1940's history book.
