From the Back Cover
In this long-anticipated, groundbreaking guide to building a portfolio, acclaimed stock pickers and Internet pioneers David and Tom Gardner lay bare the simple philosophy that they have used to help millions of grateful individual investors outfox the professionals on Wall Street.
The research, the stories, and the results that underpin this book stem from the revolutionary and wildly successful "Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio""—a one-of-a-kind Web experiment in which individual investors follow along as Motley Fool co-founder Tom Gardner invests and manages $1 million of The Motley Fool's own money.
In page after page of sound, sensible investment advice, readers are offered a rare glimpse into the inner workings of The Motley Fool machine—and offered a first-class education in building, growing, and defending an individual portfolio, one investment strategy at a time. From learning to think like an investor to finding a first stock, from dividend investing to blue-chip bargains to small-cap treasures, from international investing to community-based online tools that are revolutionizing stock selection and asset allocation, this book takes the reader through the essential strategies for building any portfolio—no matter how small its start or how big its ambitions.

The overall strategy the book outlines is pretty sound. They use actual companies to explain the concepts they're trying to convey. However, they only explain enough to pique your interest. Right when it gets you hooked they stop short of delivering the good stuff and throw in a pitch for one of their services leaving you feeling just a bit unsatisfied. It's a shame because when the book isn't holding anything back it a good and fun read. They just ruin things with endorsement after endorsement.
After the third chapter I couldn't help but feeling like I was wasting my time as this book is not giving me all of the information I need. If/When I subscribe to one of the services they suggest I really won't have any need for this book. My father-in-law subscribes to their Rule Breakers newsletter and enjoys it. I'll refer back to this book from time to time, but I must admit that I kind of regret picking up this one.
the 2009 Stock Report. I have not recieved the report nor even an answer. So much for there BIG promises. It looks like they are really just a marketing company. Lots of hype not much result.
