'The author's varied business endeavors over the years led him to Las Vegas on multiple occasions and it was on one such trip that he was struck by the notion that playing craps was the perfect metaphor for playing Wall Street. Given this revelation, 'Wall Street Craps was simply something that I felt destined to express and create.'
In his Introduction, Nakamoto simply and clearly lays out what the reader will take away from his book. 'In my book, you'll learn a simple, yet sophisticated approach to playing the stock market. This approach uses an innovative 'crap game' metaphor to help investors quickly grasp the nuances of this challenging investment arena.' With that, the author leads the reader through ten, easy to read and follow chapters that explore what he considers to be the ten most critical areas to understand in order to accelerate one's success in the market.
The content of 'Wall Street Craps' is solid. It includes interesting background on the modern evolution of trading and investing, varied philosophies and approaches to 'the game,' and a few new twists on proven, effective strategies. I found the ideas in Chapter 3, Money Management, to be especially relevant to that subject beyond the stock market.
I like Steve Nakamoto's tone and manner in writing about trading and marketing in "Wall Street Craps." He makes "the game" entertaining, fun and fairly easy to follow and understand. Despite some instances of over-hype, there is plenty of savvy substance to contemplate and empower individual investors to take a shot at the market, even if they've not fared well in the past. Since most of Nakamoto's audience will likely already perceive that Wall Street is a crap game, the book's title should play nicely to them.
The Midwest Book Review - Wall Street Craps is a no-nonsense guide to making money in the stock market. This book's simple approach emphasizes the importance of keeping a sharp mindset and not allowing one's emotions to get the better of one's judgement. Gambling analogies are nonstop for Wall Street demands just as much if not more alertness as a Las Vegas casino.
This excellent primer, filled with sound advice for playing the Wall Street game, also warns of when it's best not to play if one's finances are thin or if the game is taking too high a toll on one's physical or mental health.

Steve Nakamot majored in finance in his college years and continued to study the stock market and learn from his mistakes and he also reminds you to do the same.
This book is good for anyone who wants to get into the game with some solid information to get your game plan on. I also would give this to the young person who wants to get started trading in the stock market.
Unlike other investment books, Wall Street Craps was recently published, so this information addresses our current financial situation. This book took my basic knowledge of investing, and brought it to a much higher level.

Everything you need to know to be successful (and careful) is included. There's a lot of wisdom and a wealth of information in this book, including a helpful section on investment web sites.
