Reading Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World is like overhearing a barstool monologue by a streetwise MBA from the School of Hard Knocks: if you interrupt with a dumb question, be prepared for a blunt answer that may blow your assumptions clear out of the proverbial water. Cramer is co-founder of TheStreet. In Real Money , Cramer presents a regimen to riches for investors with bloated theories who feel defeated by every decline in the stock market. Cramer doesn't believe in the current if you can't beat the market become the market via index funds mentality.

Sometimes I thought things could have been explained a little more clearly, but maybe that's just me.
I think that people who have some stock experience already would get more out of this one than complete beginners would; you don't have to be an expert, but if you need concise definitions and have never bought a stock, this may not be quite right. On the other hand, just reading these kinds of books, even if they're over my head, help me learn by immersion ; View all 4 comments. May 18, Charles Kato rated it it was amazing. There was a 50, watt AM station WOAI being broadcast out of San Antonio that was somehow able to get coverage all the way to me, some 80 miles away.
As I drove around town I would listen intently as Jim would invite me and my leaky Ford escort to join him in a piece of the action. He was exciting, motivating, and usually right. Cramer was my first real glimpse into the finance world, and I started listening to Jim Cramer about a decade ago when I was still living in South-East Austin.
Cramer was my first real glimpse into the finance world, and ten years later I still listen to him with just as much interest, no pun intended. I can't help but think that in some small way, the years of enthusiasm Cramer has given me in regards to the market is most likely one of the reasons I will begin work on a Master's degree in Finance this coming year.
He's written several, but I chose, "Real Money - sane investing in an insane world. Jim came through for me big time. I was baffled before I had bought the book as to why if you buy a stock from a company, and the company won't buy it back nor pay you dividends, that it is worth anything at all The answer to those and dozens of other obtuse and seemingly simple questions are cleverly sorted out in Jim's book.
Because of that, this is a must read for any novice or intermediate investor. Cramer's Twenty-five Rules for Investing 1. Bulls, bears make money, pigs get slaughtered. It's OK to pay the taxes. Don't buy all at once. Buy damaged stocks, not damaged companies. Diversify to control risk 6. Do your stock homework. No one made a dime by panicking. Buy best-of-breed companies.
Defend some stocks, not all. Bad buys won't become takeovers. Don't own too many names. Cash is for winners. No woulda, shoulda couldas. Expect, don't fear corrections. Don't forget bonds. Never subsidize losers with winners. Check hope at the door. Be flexible. When the chiefs retreat, so should you. Giving up on value is a sin. Be a TV critic. Wait 30 days after preannouncements Beware of Wall Street hype. Explain your picks. There's always a bull market.
Jul 12, Leonard rated it really liked it Recommends it for: People interested in investing. For a long time I was a staunch critic of Cramer as I perceived many of his ideas to be reckless and dangerous. Having read his book I've done a complete His insights are not earth shattering.
Rather I would describe them as Advanced Common Sense. His book and show have helped me to identify why some of the stocks that I've invested in the past did not perform as I expected them to. Although he shamelessly plugs h For a long time I was a staunch critic of Cramer as I perceived many of his ideas to be reckless and dangerous.
Although he shamelessly plugs his book and TV show, I genuinely believe that Cramer's primary motivation is to educate people and help them succeed in investing. He owns his mistakes which is rare in this day and age.
I've yet to read an analyst report that said "My bad, we blew it when we recommended BUY on this stock". The book is well laid out and the information is simple and easy to understand.
Cramer describes almost everything by relevant analogies that I think most everyone can relate to. The book is all about empowering its readers as opposed to offering a get rich quick scheme. My only criticism of this book is his abundant use of SAT words that I had to constantly look up in the dictionary. Jan 14, Irene Giannakakis rated it it was ok.
Good information but at times it was over my head and hard to get through. Think he has valuable information and stories but maybe not for a beginner investor. Sep 19, Greg Kopstein rated it really liked it. Booyah to Jim Cramer for writing this book.
It was surprisingly interesting. Very informative. Mar 03, Mike Adeleke rated it it was amazing. This book is a classic example of why you should always do your homework. For my short investment career, I've been led to believe that Cramer was a buffoon. I know now that that is extremely false. View 1 comment.
