"They say if you give a man a fish, you can feed him for a day. . . Teach him how to fish, and he can eat for a lifetime. In The SmartMoney Stock Picker's Bible, Peter Finch teaches people how to invest rather than to simply pick out a few hot stocks. His insights on the investing process will teach people how to make money for a lifetime!"-Ron Insana, Coanchor, CNBC's Business Center

"Forget the gurus, pundits, and the latest 'hot' mutual fund manager. This book is what you need to make money in the stock market, whether you're a novice or experienced investor. It distills the essence of what makes SmartMoney a great magazine and empowers readers to make their own intelligent, profitable decisions. I know from experience that investors can do better than the market averages, and this book is the place to begin."-James B. Stewart, market columnist and bestselling author of Den of Thieves

"One of the only guides for the investor who wants to make money without running undue risks. The stress on long-term values makes it a bible for the hungry but prudent-minded future mogul. The plain-spoken prose makes it a primer for everyone else. In fact, the glossary alone should earn this book a place on every investor's shelf."-Roger Lowenstein, bestselling author of Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist and When Genius Failed: The Rise and Fall of Long-Term Capital Management
