Book Review - Trade and Grow Rich

Finance (not accounting) was my favorite subject. Though I was studying industrial engineering at NITIE, when I got the chance of elective I went with Finance related topics. "Trade & Grow Rich" has refreshed my memories of those classes. Don't worry, the book is not written with the academic point of view.

Coming to book content, author duo has prepared an easy to follow approach. They have started book with weakest points of people who trade in stock market or who lost in the market in past. From mistake portion, they have taken readers to basic of market terminologies and how to interpret and identify them. Once making sure that readers are acquainted with terms, they have started few easy to use and widely accepted techniques. They have purposefully given doe's and don'ts of market traders to avoid self-destruction and to increasing wealth. Last 25% of the book portion covers interviews of some established players in the market. For me, these interviews are more precious than previous chapters. Because it talked about the experience. It enlight us that there is no right age to enter stock market.

Good points about the book

  • A lot of charts (real script/index) to explain the concept
  • Easy to follow language & models
  • All you need is 7th-grade math to understand the concepts
  • Awesome quotations are given at the bottom of almost every page

A perfect gift material. Fin guys or people want to learn basics should read it once.
