This review is from: Preferred Stock Investing, 5th Ed. (Paperback)
Several things struck me about Preferred Stock Investing. Doug K. Le Du's writing style leaves you feeling like you're reading something from an old friend. The book is very comfortable to read and easy to understand. But the most remarkable part is how frequently I found myself feeling like "ah hah, of course this would work this way." Unlike many other investment books that I've read, it is really clear how and why the preferred stock investment method that is described in the book would work, with very little effort. And all of the preferred stocks for years listed in the book too so you don't have to take it on blind faith; the book includes the investment results, using the method that the book describes. In the beginning of the book, the author says that if you are a high-risk taking day trader looking for a quick 25% return, this book is not for you; this is correct. This book is for low-risk, methodical investors who do not want to spend a lot of time studying their computer all the time. I learn a lot and it was fun to read.
