After receiving this item my initial concern was derived from its lack of size. This book contains 79 double spaced pages with highly inflated margins. After reading this falsely described disappointment, Ill implore you not to make the same seven dollar mistake I did and stray from purchasing this item. The section on the back cover that promotes this book will teach you everything that you need to start making money in the stock market today is a generous stretch as well. This publication provides very little technical advice or contextual content necessary for a beginner to start investing and feels more like a free pamphlet provided after a seminar designed to tax the ignorant.

This short book has some good information and tips but leaves a lot out. This is a teaser to get you to buy his courses and other books. However, it has some value. I’ve been trading for a long time and making $, but I wanted to learn how to do stop limits and techniques to prevent me from losing $. Also, tips for how to find stocks about to take off. There’s some of that, but I’d hoped for more explanations about the different types of trades. It jumps from beginner stuff to more advanced things in a random way. I know this “book” is concise, which is one reason why I got it, but there are probably more detailed books for the beginners out there.

When I was about 20, I picked up a book called The Only Investment Guide Youll Ever Need by Andrew Tobias. That book opened a whole new world for me, and led to a lifelong (profitable) fascination with investing and trading. Unfortunately, I eventually lost (or tossed) that book, and have wished I could find it again, even though it is definitely outdated.

Matthew Kratters book is the same kind of book, only, perhaps, better. He summarizes many different approaches to investing and trading, and provides solid tips and resources to get started, including some of his own books (fair enough). Whether you want to start with the blue chip world of buy-and-hold dividend collection, or try the more active world of options trading--or something in between--there is something here for you. Looking back over my highlights, I find advice as diverse as the simple Only losers average losers to more advanced concepts such using a stocks float to make trading decisions.

I have three boys who are entering the workforce and ready to start investing. I think I know what Ill give them for stocking stuffers this Christmas.

I have read several of Matt Kratters books. This book is an excellent guide for beginners, and even for investors who have casually invested into stock market or used 401k account, but didnt get full understanding of how the stock market works, and many acronyms and definitions that come with it.

It gives an excellent overview of several different strategies that a novice investor could use.

The author also gives links to websites with information relevant to current chapter, including calendar of new IPOs, Warren Buffets current holdings, and many other useful websites.

If you dont have the time to read a 600-page book like The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, I would highly recommend A Beginners Guide to the Stock Market by Matt R. Kratter.

I bought this book assuming that it would be a great beginners guide into modern day stock market trading. Instead, it felt like a hastily put together wikipedia article.

I received a free copy from Matt in order to write a review. The book gives a 30,000 ft view of trading (day, swing and trend) and investing (long term). I really enjoyed his “Five Huge Mistakes that Beginners Make.” Take notice and track to make sure you do not follow those same mistakes, I have made all 5 of them myself. This book is a beginner book, if you are searching for more in-depth processes then buy Matt’s other individual process trading books. I really like how Matt talks about getting to a point of investing/trading with many different techniques but you must pick one to start and master.

Another great book by Matt which is very simple and straight forward. Any new beginner or newbie should read this guide to know the dynamics of the market and to get a better understanding of how stock market works. The content is simple, precise and includes examples that will clearly explain you about the stock market. There are various strategies that are explained. Pick one that works for you & stick to it with a long term view & discipline.

I received a free copy of this book 2+ weeks ago. I’ve read several other books by Matthew and at first glance this book seemed to be a recap of the topics covered by his other books.

Yet when I’ve finally got around to read it, I still find this humbly priced little book just as fascinating.

Matthew draws me in again with his signature direct and concise writing style, and rich, highly informative contents. I have been trading lightly for 3+ years and yet could not put this book down.

A high IQ multi-millionaire friend recently lost $4000+ trading penny stocks. Wish he had read this book earlier!

Useful if you already know the basics and want to jump onto an investing platform, but not good if you are a complete beginner.

Pros: Great and simple to access content.
Good value.
Easy to pick up.
Nice tips and advice for getting started in the stock market.

Cons: Punctuation errors in the writing (particularly commas).
Ugly blank spine.
Quite a short book.
Some lazy editing, for example, tap here for more information was mentioned a few times.

Id still recommend the book as its a great starting point!

This book was suggested by a work colleague as were both thinking about becoming millionaires 🤔. Pretty easy to understand and helped me understand the basics off the stockmarket and the jargon used on different finacial sites. Now back to making my millions 😘
