How to Make Money in Stocks:  A Winning System in Good Times and Bad, Fourth Edition
How to Make Money in Stocks: A Winning System in Good Times and Bad, Fourth Edition

Edition: Paperback
Price: $12.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Buy for All Investors!, November 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book gave me the clear idea of how to screen stocks and when to buy and sell. I read lots of books about investing both fundamental and technical analysis as well as options. This is probably the best book to read whether you like to trade stocks or options (I mainly sell options, but I found this book to be very helpful!).

Mr. O'Neil used chapter 1 to show a number of charts to get familiar with buy and selling points on charts.
Then, he introduces the concept, CAN SLIM and explained them in detail.

C = Current Big or Accelerating Quarterly Earnings and Sales per Share
A = Annual Earnings Increases: Look for Big Growth
N = Newer Companies, New Products, New Management, New Highs Off Properly Formed Chart Bases
S = Supply and Demand: Big Volume Demand at Key Points
L = Leader or Laggard
I = Institutional Sponsorship
M = Market Direction

Then in part 2, he talks about when to sell to cut losses and when to sell to take profits.

I think this is a must-buy for all investors!

The book is probably one of the best books on fasting and prayer (as a spiritual discipline). As with any John Piper's books, it is definitely great!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best triathlon training book, September 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Your Best Triathlon (Paperback)
I bought many books last year (2012) since my wife told me that she wanted to do a full triathlon race this year (2013). Before 2013, her races are limited to few marathons, 50Ks, and 1 double marathon. She has never done any real triathlon race - meaning no swim and bike background. Her marathon PR was 3:24 - so now you know her athletic ability to judge how the training turned out to be.

Here are the books I bought:
The Triathlete's Training Bible
Be Iron Fit by Don Fink
Ironman Start to Finish, 24 Weeks to an Endurance Triathlon
Iron Planner
Training Plans for Multisport Athletes
Complete Triathlon Book by Matt Fitzgerald
Essential Week-by-Week Training Guide by Matt Fitzgerald

In addition, I bought some biking related books and other swimming related books.

If you are going to buy just one book, I recommend "Your Best Triathlon" above anything else - that is if you are going to use the heart zone, pace zone, and power zone related training. If you aren't interested in using any of those, you can just use Matth Fitzgerald's Essential Week-by-Week, but I found it not very much helping if you are serious about the training. My wife told me that she wanted to finish her first full triathlon race within 12 hours.

I believe that "Your Best Triathlon" is a much better book than the classic, "the Triathlete's Training Bible" by the same author. It pretty much explains everything you need to know along with a sample workout plan that you can use... providing you know your zone, etc. I used the book as the foundation for the training plan, then changed a bit here and there as needed.

Here are the results:
Olympic Triathlon in May (her first open water): 2:59:39 - a bad race... it was a cold day and she wasn't ready for a cold water swim, a cold bike ride, and a cold run....
Sprint Triathlon in June: 1:46:48
1/3 distance Triathlon: 3:17:29 - she took 2nd place overall female.
Ironman Half in July: 5:17:19 - she took 7 in her age group, 60 in female, and 310 in overall.
Full Rev3 in September: 11:15:56 - She took 1st in her age group - (there were 2 female in her age group faster than she was, but they took 2nd and 3rd overall female), 5th in female overall.

Here is the stat on her full-tri:
Swim: 1:13:59
Bike: 6:07:44
Run: 3:42:24

I am going to use this book again next year to improve her time. My recommendation for biking book is Training and Racing with a Power Meter by Hunter Allen.

I had to replace the driver side power non-heated mirror. This was a perfect fit to my 2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 SE. I put my old cover instead of the white cover came with it, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars a nice picnic blanket, March 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I can use the blanket anywhere, everywhere! It's very soft and nice to use. It folds very nicely and can be very compact. It's a waterproof, so even if the ground is wet, you won't be wet at all. The blanket is also very durable and can take some heavy beating. I love this blanket!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome bluetooth, March 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used to use plantronics products. But after using Jawbone ICON-series, I am converted!

The fit can be interesting at times, but most of the time it fits pretty well.

I didn't get any complains about quality of the voice. I think it does the job a lot better than plantronics voyage.

It connects to my iPhone 4 immediately. Much faster than plantronics products.

Using the voice calling, this was a lot better than my experience with plantronics.

I can also update the software, if needed at all - I updated the voice portion, so now i have a sexy female voice on my bluetooth.

This is a product I definitely recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Webcam, March 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is one of the clearest webcams I have ever used. I definitely recommend this product if you want to have a good value webcam. You will see a person from the other side clearly. It also has a software to follow your face when you move - a nice feature.

The software it comes with, however, takes up lots of processing power. I do not recommend using it - just use skype.

I used this product, and it seems to work ok. Nothing really spectacular. Maybe I wasn't using it correctly, but it takes lots of time. It took me more than just one hour. Maybe I am slow, too. :-(
