    I don't care for Jim Cramer personally, but my brother-in-law follows him and was given this book for Christmas a couple years back. Curious, I started reading it while visiting and decided to give it a try when I got home. Cramer is ideal for anyone willing to spend the time poring over company financial statements to maximize the amount of money they can possibly make. For me, however, time is more important than money, and I find that matching the returns of the S&P to be adequate.

Curious, I started reading it while visiting and decided to give it a try when I got home. Cramer is ideal for anyone willing to spend the time poring over company financial statements to maximize the amount of money they can possibly make. For me, however, time is more important than money, and I find that matching the returns of the S&P to be adequate. Could I beat it? Well, the best minds out there manage to do it about 13% of the time. And I'm certainly not one of the best minds out there. He disdains my preferred investment style: indexing. For this reason, we will never see eye-to-eye. I find his belief in charting absurd, and if there IS any truth to it, it is all because there enough other chart believers out there who make the stocks go up and down when they're "predicted" to. Using it as a basis for financing my future is just to much to ask of me. I found his Conclusion to be a stunning admission for someone in his position. I found it sincere and honest, as, honestly, I found most of the rest of the book. He's very open about his mistakes, and I found his roundup of those mistakes to be among the better chapters in the book. So, it was an OK book with some interesting info. (For instance, I understand now why financial guys obsess over "same-store sales".) I disagree with some of his practices, but that's only because I'm lazy and invest in index funds. When I look at stocks, I'm more of a Motley Fool kinda guy. If you are into investing enough to vigorously follow the necessary practice, here's a good guide. And good luck to you!

    Get Rich Carefully is an investment book that is based primarily on stocks. That being said, as somebody who watches and enjoys Mad Money I have to say that Get Rich Carefully parallels Cramer's investing philosophy displayed nightly on his show. Then why not watch the show? Because Cramer can't cover everything that's in this book in less than 60 minutes. Then why not just read the book? Because Mad Money is up to date with information and wonderful interviews of many great CEOs. Whatever you ch Get Rich Carefully is an investment book that is based primarily on stocks.

Because Cramer can't cover everything that's in this book in less than 60 minutes. Then why not just read the book? Because Mad Money is up to date with information and wonderful interviews of many great CEOs. Whatever you choose, when you stick with Cramer judiciously you're a winner. And that doesn't mean you impetuously buy a stock just based off his "buy buy buy!" suggestion. Just as Cramer would want, you should study your stock before you pull the trigger. Cramer is extremely useful because he gleans a lot of information and puts it in perspective for you, and that's an amenity that nobody should hate on. In Get Rich Carefully, Cramer does just this. At first, he talks about what moves a stock and how sector ETF funds overpower stocks. He goes on to tell you what to look for in growth stocks and how you can rate/test them. He touches on seven major themes that he believes are built to last which are: 1. Embrace the new holy trinity of teach-social, mobile, and the cloud. 2. Companies that keep us healthy 3. The New Frugality 4. Shareholder Bounty from anticompetitive mergers 5. Stealth Tech: The power of innovation 6. New Pharma: The four horsemen of biotech 7. Gushing profits from America's oil and gas revolution In the 4th chapter called "Breaking Up Is Easy To Do" Cramer explains why some companies are better off breaking off some of their pieces and why and gives examples on previous times it worked and didn't work. The 5th chapter is about his "bankable 21" which is about 21 ceos that you can trust and ride with. I found this chapter very informative and interesting. He goes on to dedicate a whole chapter to charting, for fundamentalists of course. Cramer as a fundamentalist was never a huge fan of charting until proven multiple times that it worked by his colleagues. Here, he keenly tells you how you can use it to help you without depending on it. It allayed some of my charting aversion for sure. In the last few chapters he talks about his charitable trust which owns stocks and donates profits. He speaks on behalf the mistakes and lessons to be learned from the mistakes he made. He also goes on to talk about what matters and what doesn't, what should we investors should care about. He goes on to explain how to sell, which is very hard in a volatile stock market and a lot of people end up buying high and selling low. Cramer talks about how one's emotions can affect their decision disdainfully. A bad mindset, such as a bigotry and impulsiveness can deleterious to even the best investors like Cramer himself, and that brings me to my conclusion: The author, Jim Cramer is outspoken, well-rounded, rhetorically capable, enjoyable, funny, and so forth; but his greatest asset is his honesty. In Get Rich Carefully Cramer is uncannily candid, especially for a TV personality and financial role model and pundit. This is eccentric, and as he said in his book it is best to learn from your mistakes. For this reason alone Cramer deserves much credit and consideration. Get Rich Carefully a very good book to glean stock market information, narrow and broad, and is well structured and enjoyable. I enjoyed it, and therefore give it 5/5

    I listened to this on audiobook, and the constant yelling was a bit much. However the tips, tricks and analysis were very helpful!

    Excellent romp though the markets, what moves them and how to pick them. Cramer opens up about the many mistakes he's made over the years which is the most interesting reading to me. Great read.

    Full disclosure: I watch Cramer regularly when he appears on CNBC and Mad Money and I have read most of his books. He is not always right, but he calls it the way he sees it based on his years of experience on Wall Street. He is loud and goofy, but he believes in investing in individual stocks rather than relying on "professional" money managers. The antics are designed to keep people interested.

He talks about seven major investment themes to follow and the companies that will benefit. He explains what to look for, charting, and when to sell. I skimmed through the section on CEOs as I believe that while strong management is essential, the strongest management cannot overcome larger economic trends.

    They say America loves an apology and this book is a good example of that. I found the book to be pretty densely packed with advice, but I couldn't really get over the fact that this is basically Cramer cashing in on his own apologetic narrative for his participation in and perpetuation of the "reckless investing" of 2008. If you've ever seen the interview Cramer did with John Stewart in 2009, you'll understand how hard it is to hear Cramer ask whether I'm "Tired of phony promises about getting They say America loves an apology and this book is a good example of that.

    3.75 stars actually. I'm relatively well versed on the machinations of the market, so not much new was gleaned here. That being said, Cramer is entertaining, and I did learn more about market segments, best in breed, & playing the competition on certain stocks. I won't be getting rich quickly, but I'm averaging ~13.08% a year, & Cramer confirmed I'm probably making smart/safe moves. 3.75 stars actually.

    Same old same old. If you listen to him every day you get 90% of what's in this book. It's nice to have everything in one spot though and you can go back and see if he is right. He currently rates a D on pundittracker.com, but knowledge is always a good thing. Same old same old. If you listen to him every day you get 90% of what's in this book.

    Good practices and I learned a lot. I did get stuck halfway through... I just got tired of the long winded rants which are entertaining on TV but get long in a book. This would have been an amazing book if it was consolidated to 250 pages vs. 500.

    Awesome read. Tells you what to look for in investments and even gives you all the best of breeds for each industry. His Bankable 21 section is great too, where he goes down the list of great CEOs and why they are "investable." Definitely recommend. Awesome read.

    "Some people want to make friends... I'm just trying to make you some money." Viewers of Mad Money on CNBC or subscribers to Action Alerts will need no introduction to the energetic crazy man who serve as everyman's guide to the ins and outs of the US Stock Market.

What homework should you do first, and how do you do it? You've heard about the fundamentals, but what does that mean? And why can you only find it if you separate companies from their stock symbols and understand what makes them tick as businesses? A lot of the info in here is quite simply, priceless. If you want to get into the stock market, I'd recommend a steady daily dose of Cramer, and then a methodical study of each of his books.

    The first half of the book was okay. It covered a lot of things about investing, what to look for in a stock and the underlying business, etc.... This was a little too broad for me. A way better book focusing on this stuff is Phil Town's book, Rule #1. The second half of Cramer's book, however, was filled with interesting things and ways of looking at the charts of stocks to help guide and dump purchases, as well as quite a few other things.

Fedex gives a view on growth, and rails with domestic strength, autos, oil and gas. Disney shows the strength of the us consumer. Home depot and toll brothers for housing. Cramer shows you how to compare individual companies with companies in its sector. Each sector is rated based on different metrics: apparel, raw costs; banks, net interest margins; defense and aerospace with backlogs. He recommends looking for longterm trends to invest over the long run, such as the switch to natural organic foods, bargain shopping, and humanization of pets. Mergers are excellent at increasing value and divesting a conglomerate if the businesses are unrelated. Sometimes 1+1=4 or 2-1=4.

    I like Jim's goal. To bring advanced stock picking to the common man. This book may not pass the test of time but he has extremely relevant examples that allow you to truly understand concepts that often seem abstract. One chapter that will stand the test of time is the research chapter where he explains (in lots of detail) how to research and weigh different stocks against one another. It's one of the best explanations of how to properly research stocks before picking them. I like Jim's goal. To bring advanced stock picking to the common man.

    Jim Cramer does a splendid job of teaching his material once again. This book is more than just insightful, it is also well written and full of useful information. Jim Cramer uses theory, examples, and reinforcing experience to convey his ideas. Benjamin Graham may be the greatest investor of all time but Jim Cramer is, in my opinion, the greatest investment teacher of all times.

    Interesting reading about the stock markets and what one should look for when picking a stock. The reading style is quite entertaining and overall the book is very educational. The book is from 2013, so reading it in 2019 makes it more interesting, since one can know how the companies mentioned in the book have developed.

    That was a long one. I wish I had finished it years ago when I first bought it...alas, this should not be your first investment read or your first Cramer read...but if you are a booyah Cramerican, this book brings a lot of things full circle. Long live the little guys.

    It's clear Jim knows a lot about WallStreet. He knows how to read companies and where to look at. The feeling Jim gave me after reading his book that you need to put a lot of constant effort in your research wether buying a stock or not. It's clear Jim knows a lot about WallStreet.

    A Solid Lesson in Principles I liked Cramer’s presentation on themes and the many lessons from his own mistakes at the end of the book. I learned some valuable lessons on how to think about investing. I am unsure how to filter for the years since the book was written.

    First investment book, best investment book. (At least a good start). Some of the examples are dated and suggested stocks no longer apply, but the principles are what Jim Cramer is getting at.
