“The neatest little guide to stock market investing” by Jason Kelly is a book for anyone who wants to learn about the stock market.
The book accomplishes on what it sets out to accomplish by giving a good overview of every step related to becoming a business owner in a public company.
The author, Jason Kelly, is most know for his book “The 3% Signal” and his newsletter “The Kelly Letter” about the stock market and investing.
I liked the book. I had some knowledge about the stock market prior, but reading the book helped me think like an investor. I learnt how to evaluate stocks and all the termer related such as P/E, ROE and all the other measurement.
I enjoyed the third chapter where the author writes about Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham, Peter Lynch and other investor masters. He summarizes the investor philosophy which is very helpful. I also liked the way the author related all aspects of investing with one example throughout the book.
There is nothing that I didn’t like about the book. Although the book had a dry and academic tone which is expected for these kinds of books, I loved reading this book.
I would recommend this book to everyone because I truly believe everyone should learn the basics of investing even though the invest in an index fund or mutual funds.
