By Arooj Shaikh on November 21, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Well, I have read IWS several times now, and I have got to congratulate the writer for an amazing book. First of all, I knew it would be a great book. However, I was not prepared for the departure from ADXcellence.

It is a extremely comprehensive work, something worthy of a course in college or in an advanced high school. Everything from the
binding to the easy-to-read print size (something few authors seem to care about) exudes careful thought and respect for the reader - I also know this doesn't make it cheap to publish.

It took me several readings to get a full grasp of the intention of the book. The deceptively easy 50-50 strategy has been very well fleshed-out, and even Van Tharp doesn't have as good of an explanation of maximum loss planning when putting on a trade.

I have a feeling this was a harder book to write than ADXcellence, since it covers a lot of ground. The review of psychological factors is just fantastic, again on par with the best works on this subject and much more approachable.

A reproducible strategy with a definable edge is given, and then basically all else is dependent on emotional control and position sizing.

Bravo! I know that I will more confidently implement the suggestions in the book. My twist on this might be to incorporate dual time-frames (a la ADXcellence), but I will resist the temptation to "mess with success."

You will enjoy and profit from reading and studying this book!

This was a common sense, back to the basics book for me. I have been studying technical analysis for over 30 years and have found that you can get lost in jungle of technical indicators (fibonacci levels, butterfly patterns, Gann angles, etc), trading systems, seminars, and vendor promotions. Invest with Success brings you back to the basics, trade with the trend, time your investing with the overall market, buy stocks with high relative strength, and use proper money management. The book is well laid out and full of sound investing advice. This is not a book for the buy and hold investor or the day trader but a book for the medium to longer term traders/investors...holding weeks to months, even years. Schaap does use some fundamental indicators for stock selection, which is OK, but uses the technicals to time the purchase. He is also realistic about trading. He says ,"The name "50-50" also refers to your chances of any one trade getting stopped out, which is about 50%". The key is that the losses are kept small with the system and the winning trades will far outpace the losers...another point of "back to the basics".

I have a considerable trading library but if I had to pare that library down to 10 or so books, Invest with Success would be one of the 10.

Are you floundering around trying this or that in a market that you don't really understand? I was until reading INVEST WITH SUCCESS. Dr. Schaap explains all about investing, in down-to-earth terms. Then he gives a specifically spelled-out plan for successful trading. There is no pressure to purchase anything else--everything you need is right there in the book. He explains exactly how to make money and limit risk. He also gives a link to his free trade letter that contains lots of reinforcing articles and examples. Oh, and did I mention that the book is fun to read with Dr. Schaap's humor and personality shining through along with all the valuable information?! What a sensational book--read it and reap profits.

Outstanding book for people who do not know anything about the investing in the stock market. The book starts out explaining the basics, but by the time you are finished with the book you will have the knowledge to Invest with Success!
You will also want to do to traderdocs website and sign up for the trade journal. Spend time going over all the information on the website and in the weekly trade journal.
READ the book!!! Paper trade!! It will take sometime to learn all the information, but once you understand you will succeed in the market!

Invest with Success is everything one could want to learn how to manage to use the stock market. But we can't forget - it teaches the 50-50 Trading Strategy! This is a great plan that Dr Schaap made for anyone to know what to do for any trade. He teaches Low Risers and High Risers for entry, how to exit a trade and covers ETFs and market cycles. It is a terrific read! none the less for having the 50-50 Trading Strategy included.

if you enjoy making investing difficult than this book is not for you. Investing should be fun and profitable, and this book teaches you how to do that and it teaches you about the whole market. It tells you how to read the market and stocks to be profitable, also it tells you not just about charts but how to understand fundamentals, so now you understand both technical and fundamentals. This book is written for anyone that is interested investing in the stock market, it is for beginners and for pros, but if you don't care about investing, and just want to learn how to protect and make your 401K or IRA to grow than this book is even for you. Also the main benefit to this book compare to other books, is that it is so easy to understand and it doesn't require any financial background. Thank you Dr. Schaap for the wonderful books and educations that you provide
