9780066620763: Trillionaire Next Door: The Greedy Investor's Guide to Day Trading

When Getting Rich Quick Just Isn't Fast Enough!

Many day trading books on the market today contain dubious advice, but never before has there been a book guaranteed to contain 100 percent dubious advice--until now.

The Trillionaire Next Door is that book. Inside you'll find:

  • The rock-solid, scientific principles of day trading explained in language so clear and concise it's almost insulting
  • A glossary of key economic terms for the day trader, like "mousepad" and "click"
  • Advice for the long-term investor: which stocks to hold in your portfolio for five, ten, fifteen minutes or more
  • Confusing, meaningless graphs and charts
  • Bad math
  • And much, much more--but since day traders have short attention spans, not too much more

"If The Trillionaire Next Door were a stock, I'd buy it, sell it, buy it, sell it, and buy it again--it's that good!" --Stacy Gellman, day trader

About the Author:

Andy Borowitz has parlayed his skills as a day trader and his willingness to remain in his bathrobe into becoming America's first trillionaire. Widely considered the richest man in America, he has never been included on the Forbes 400 list because his net worth has too many zeroes to fit on one page.

In the rare moments when he is not pointing and clicking, he is a regular contributer of humor to both The New Yorker and New York Times. A performer and storyteller, he frequently appears with "Stories at the Moth" at the Public Theater in New York City.

He lives with his stocks.

From Publishers Weekly:

It's hard to dislike any book that's dedicated to OprahAin the blatant hope that she will endorse it on her television showAthen blithely dismisses $9 billion as "chump change." Borowitz, a magazine writer whose humorous satires have appeared in the New Yorker and the New York Times, has captured the style that permeates just about every get-rich-quick book: a knowing tone coupled with ridiculous mathematical abstractions. "Five years ago, no one traded stocks online. Today, over one quarter of all investors are trading electronically. Do the math; at this rate, in 20 years, there will be more day traders in the United States than people." As in all these books, Borowitz presents "the essential 10 rules" of becoming a trillionaire, each of which is followed by a "real quote" from a day trader. Rule number seven is typical: "Control your emotions." The quote: "I try not to take this business seriously, but some of my stocks are really out to get me." Essentially a long magazine piece padded with graphics (such as an asset-allocation pie chart divided into segments marked "Day Trading," "Lotto" and "Poking Around on the Beach with a Metal Detector"), this is nonetheless an entertaining diversion.
