A Market Wizards book for growth stocks

I enjoyed this book by listening and reading it 3-4 times since i bought it. A lot of good nuggets of information from market vets.

IBD IBD IBD That’s the book

Every summary says to read IBD weekly and the IBD 50.

That’s how you win on the stock market.

Paid advertisement for IBD

This book just promotes IBD. Introduced me to CANSLIM but that's it. It just talks about other traders success and teaches very little. There are a lot of other books you could spend les money on and get a lot more value. upsetting as I expected more knowledge and less commercial. The Acronym IBD and the company itself is mentioned at least 200 times if not more.

Just buy "How to Make Money in Stocks"

Any additional comments?

This book can simply be described as an advertisement to buy "How to Make Money in Stocks", which is an excellent book and considered one of the modern day must have investment books. Unfortunately this book adds little if you have already read "How to Make Money in Stocks", and just reiterates points. The common theme is: 'so-and-so' lost money in the market making these mistakes, read "How to Make Money in Stocks", applied this principle from the book, and lived happily after after.
