Review:

In 24 Essential Lessons for Investment Success, the founder of Investor's Business Daily and author of How to Make Money in Stocks, William O'Neil, distills his 40 years of experience, study, and analysis of the market into a series of lessons about how to buy and sell stocks. O'Neil is neither a pure fundamentalist nor a technician--instead, he advocates blending both approaches, applying fundamental analysis to identifying the best companies and technical analysis to understanding the price actions of those stocks. The lessons cover everything from protecting your investment account (always cut your losses at 8 percent of the purchase price) and basic chart reading (identifying market tops and bottoms) to understanding relative price strength and tips on building a concentrated portfolio. While not absolutely necessary, it helps to have a copy of Investor's Business Daily handy: these lessons were drawn from a series that O'Neil wrote, which frequently mention features unique to that newspaper. 24 Essential Lessons for Investment Success is a easy-to-read, commonsense guide to stock picking that both novices and seasoned investors should find extremely useful. --Harry C. Edwards

Praise for O'Neil's 24 Essential Lessons for Investment Success:

"When it comes to investment and stock selection, you couldn't get a better mentor than Bill O'Neil. . . . A must read for the serious do-it-yourself investor."

­­ Harry S. Dent, Jr., author, The Roaring 2000s and The Roaring 2000s Investor

"There simply isn't any other book that can be called a handbook for Cramer, Berkowitz." ­­ Jim Cramer, Co-founder, TheStreet.Com & Hedge Fund Manager, Cramer, Berkowitz & Co.

"No fad can compete for long with the sound principles that William O'Neil shares with investors. In my 35 years in the business, I've found very few folks who really know the market, how to pick good stocks over time, and when to sell better than Bill."

­­Foster Friess, Chairman, Friess Associates and Co-Manager, Brandywine Funds

"In this era of information overload, day trading, and market volatility, author Bill O'Neil takes the emotion out of investing and lays out a clear, understandable road map on long-term investing."

­­Linda O'Bryon, Senior Vice President and Executive Editor, Nightly Business Report
