*The New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller*
“Look to this book for guiding principles rather than specific stock tips … Forget about getting rich quick: The new investment climate, writes Mad Money host Cramer, is “treacherous…bizarre stock movements have become the staple, if not the hallmark, of this era.” Cramer, formerly known for his exuberant approach … has since taken a visibly more deliberate approach to the matter. This new book reflects his caution ... Cramer’s long list of dos and don’ts (Relative valuations don’t justify a purchase”; “Stop falling in love with your stocks”) is worth the price of the book.”—Kirkus
“In highly accessible language, Cramer explains how the stock market is influenced by economic data, Fed policy, world events, the actions of hedge funds, and the trend toward sector funds even when the underlying fundamentals of a stock remain stable. Drawing on his long experience, both mistakes and successes, Cramer demystifies the stock market and offers sound investing advice and an insightful overview of the market for cautious investors.” — Booklist
“Jim is a whirlwind, a true force of nature. He embodies not only the strongest work ethic extant (something Omega Advisors' Lee Cooperman taught me is at the epicenter of investment success) but in my decades in the investment business I know of no other person that possesses the breadth of knowledge about individual stocks. He is a reservoir of information…And that is why Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully … is a must-read…My advice? Run, don't walk, to read Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully. Booyah!”—Doug Kass, TheStreet.com
“Who wouldn't want to "Get Rich Carefully," as the title of Jim Cramer's new book promises? The stock market may seem scary, but Cramer says you can make money with research, logic and prudence….Whether Cramer's advice will make you a boatload of money or not, his rational explanations make stocks seem less intimidating.”—Jessica Gresko, Associated Press
“Careful isn't the word that usually comes to mind when investors think of Jim Cramer…[b]ut Cramer says his show has changed, and his newest book reflects this epiphany. Cramer is now professing a different, more traditional, approach to the stock picking.”—USA Today
“A must-read… My advice? Run, don't walk, to read Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully.”—Doug Kass, TheStreet.com
“Inspiring … even investors on the wrong side of Wall Street’s recent shakeups may find the courage to get back in the game.” —Publishers Weekly
“[Cramer] is the greatest public generator of excitement and knowledge about the market today.” —David Denby, The New Yorker

There is actually quite a bit in this book that was helpful to me, in fact a lot more than I had initially anticipated: his explanation on how a stock price can move for no apparent reason; how index funds, futures, and ETF's have had unintended consequences; the chapters "Seven Major Themes Built To Last" and "CEO's: The Bankable 21". There is also a very helpful segment called Hidden Metrics where he discusses several different sectors and then gives a best-in-breed recommendation for each sector. Lots of good ideas for further consideration and research right there. There's even more good stuff, but I'll stop here. I probably took away much more from this book than the vast majority of investing books that I have read, and believe me, I've read plenty. In fact, after further review and consideration, I decided to bump my initial star rating from a four to a five. I would recommend that you try this book whether or not you like Jim Cramer.
Get Rich Carefully reminds me a lot of Peter Lynch's "One Up On Wall Street". The approach is common sense investing. It's not about scanning balance sheets and candlestick chart patterns. It's about how the average retail investor can use what they already know to be successful with long term investments. I absolutely agree with this approach, although I don't have the attention span to be a long term buy-and-hold investor.
You will gain a lot of insight into some of the most popular brands like Home Depot, Salesforce, Nike, Disney, Starbucks, Google, and Amazon (to name a few) (okay so that was more than a few). Cramer will teach you what to look for on earnings conference calls that can help you make investment decisions. Some of this insight is incredibly creative, like using Caterpillar's earnings to gauge growth in China.
Since the book is a couple years old, some of the companies he mentions are not going to be wise investments today. For example, he raves about Whole Foods, which is a terrible stock and questionable company at the time I'm writing this.
My biggest take home from the book was to learn about the CEO of the company you are interested in investing in. He raves about Disney's Bob Iger and Starbuck's Howard Schultz, which have been 2 powerhouse stocks since this book was published. This is the reason why I refuse to invest anything in Twitter - because they have poor leadership. It's also the reason why I purchased 100 shares of Kinder Morgan for my IRA, based on Cramer's assessment of Richard Kinder (and my further due diligence).
I also love that Jim narrates the book himself. I really appreciate when an author takes the time to record their own audiobook. I enjoyed listening to him every day on my commute to and from work. To be totally honest with you, there are a lot of books that would be more captivating if they were read by Jim Cramer!
I'm knocking off 1 star because this 18 hour audiobook did get a little repetitive at times. Many times the same companies were mentioned over and over. The chapter listing his favorite CEOs of all time was very difficult to get trough; it just never ended.
I'm finding that there is a true lack of quality investment literature. Most of the books out there are get rich quick schemes that only work 1/10 times. This is an honest, informative, and above all else entertaining book that would be an easy addition to any investors library.
I was not paid for this review and did not receive any consideration from anyone for writing it. If Jim Cramer appeared at my door with a check to thank me for my review I would invite him in for a drink, but ask him to leave his check outside. That's not why I wrote it.
