    1. A very helpful book for those who want to gain some basic knowledge about how stocks work in the financial market and how to select the best portfolio of securities. Lynch shared his experiences and told us how he felt or how he dealt with losses and success when investing. I personally liked this book and he made these seemingly difficult concepts so much easier!


    2. While this is a good read, it's specific to Peter Lynch's personal investing style and dated enough that it's not entirely applicable anymore, so it is better read as a history or biography of Lynch's investing style than a guide on how to make personal investment decisions today. There's a forward written in 2000 in which Lynch provides one update to his material, but there should have been many more (such as noting what kinds of company information is no longer allowed to be provided only to i [...]


    3. dear reader,well, hello! do you like my suit? i like yours! where'd you get it?! well, today i am dressed up like a business man because we are going to be reviewing a real business man's book! yep, you guessed it, you wily little bitch, that business man is the great peter lynch, not to be confused with the act of lynching which was a form of extreme racism that took place throughout the south during the early years of the civil rights movement! lol! ok let's go!REVIEW:main position:many people [...]


    4. Regular re-read (every 5-10 years) of one of my two favorite investment books. (The other one is by the same author.). Peter Lynch was the greatest mutual fund investor of all time growing his Magellan fund to over $1 billion. His investment style is a combination of growth and value investing, so called GARP--growth at a reasonable price. While he made most of the money in big cap stocks like Wal-Mart or turnarounds like Volvo, Ford and Chrysler, he loved investing in small caps. This book cove [...]


    5. I originally picked this book because after I read a lot about Warren Buffett's investing I decided to see other people's style. This was a good read but it was specific to Lynch's style so it was not applicable to today's investment decisions. Peter describes how he came about developing his strategy for success. He talks about his past, his victories, and some of his failures. He describes everything that happened in an easy way to read. Anyone, including non-financial folks, can understand th [...]


    6. This was an assigned book for my MBA class in Securities Analysis. I learned from this book that the average (non-institutional) investor can pick winning stocks with the same success as professionals can. I am unsure about this, as I am highly skeptical any investor (professional or amateur) can beat the market. As a proponent of indexing - the idea that a broadly diversified fund invested in a basket of stocks - can beat actively managed funds, I found Lynch's advice not completely believable. [...]


    7. This is one of my favorite financial advice books ever.Peter Lynch was a genius of his time. His detractors can argue the reasons WHY he was successful (luck, timing, etc.) but it is hard to argue with the fact that he was immensely successful. In this now famous book, Peter describes how he came about developing his strategy for success. He talks about his past, his victories, and some of his failures. He describes everything that happened in an easy to read, colloquial sort of way. Anyone, inc [...]


    8. This is a short book, but long on advice even, and especially, after the financial meltodown. It took me about 40 - 45 minutes to go through the book, but I'll read it again tomorrow and maybe again next week allowing the content to set in. The book is a fun read and gives novices, such as myself, some basic fundamentals and concepts before we rush in (again) to lose our money (again) while the big boys rake all the profits (again) in the casino we all know as the stock market. There is no speci [...]


    9. Very interesting read on Peter Lynch's investment techniques. Good amount of basics and a somewhat more aggressive approach as compared to conservative, academic, stick to indexing approach. It also helps that the author is at times funny and most of the times makes the content easier to read for people with not much knowledge of economics and finance.




    10. Peter Lynch does such a great job explaining how you do not have to work on Wall Street to be successful in the stock market. One Up on Wall Street provides a great overall foundation for investing and how people can utilize companies they know/understand and products they use and enjoy to make successful investments before the stock catches the attention of the large institutional investors. Lynch stated you only have to be right six out of ten times to be successful in the stock market, and a [...]


    11. Recently got into investing and this book was a solid start. The best way to learn is from the masters, right? Lynch is one of those people who seems like a stand up guy. He was not overly smart or special in any kind of way when he started to invest. He was in some ways struggling and hoping for something better in life. He actually even made me laugh when he mentioned you should find some stupid sounding companies to invest in before they get discovered by Wall Street investors. I might make t [...]


    12. Note: This review appeared in a financial newsletter I contributed to. It follows the review for Beating the Street which you may want to read first.In our last issue I introduced you to Peter Lynch, the dynamic former portfolio manager for the spectacularly successful Fidelity Magellan Mutual Fund in the United States. And we introduced you to some of Lynch’s ideas and beliefs, most importantly his view that any reasonably intelligent person can beat the average Wall Street expert. In fact, L [...]


    13. If everyone will look for tenbaggers who would create those in the first place? Well, though several minutes and recalled somewhere saw that financial and business billionaires are 50/50 (in U.S.), so probably everything's ok, no matter what you do, you still need to go to a lot of the shit.


    14. Lynch books are light and easy reads and while the fundamentals of this book are mostly accurate he bites his own hand talking about supposedly great companies who we now know are out of business like Toys R Us, who he brings up repeatedly. Also if you followed the principles of this book you never would've invested in or Google due to their crazy p/e ratios.He writes this: If I could avoid a single stock, it would be the hottest stock in the hottest industry, the one that gets the most favorab [...]


    15. My truthful opinoin of this book would be that the basics outline and concepts are still in play as of 2017, but how they impacted on his life doesnt concern me in the least and will never matter as time goes by


    16. One Up On Wall Street by John Rothchild was a great read about how to improve and increase your knowledge when it comes to the stock market and investment everywhere. It tells about where to how to effectively buy stocks and he gives lots of personal stories and descriptions of his process of making these investments. Along with the advice on how to invest he explains some of the systems in place. These include what you are actually buying when you purchase stock. This is a stake in the company [...]


    17. Pretty good! More like a history of companies and stocks that performed well over Mr. Lynch's career (companies can do well when their stocks don't, and vice versa).What I find particularly interesting about Mr. Lynch is how little he talks about price, and how much he talks about underlying business prospects. He goes in to asset plays (if the cash minus liabilities is worth more than what it's selling for) and classifies companies in to six different categories (slow growers, stalwarts (aka me [...]


    18. More like a 3.7/5.It's an exceptional book if it's the first one your reading on investing. But for someone who has read other material such as by Ben Graham will find a good part of this book rudimentary. The book is divided into 3 parts, the 1st part is essentially very basic. I actually would have preferred it as my introduction to investment material. The 2nd part does a good job of providing for ways in which investment potentials can be classified. Finally, the 3rd part does a good job of [...]


    19. A good beginners guide from the "greatest Mutual fund manager " peter lynch. It gives amateurs the confidence that we can play the market and beat the odds.My favorite quotes are 1. Investing without research is playing a stud poker and never looking at the cards.2.Only invest what you could afford to lose without that loss having any effect on your daily life in the foreseeable future.3. When you pick your own stocks, you ought to outperform the experts. Otherwise, why bother?He categorizes sto [...]


    20. The incredible ease with which one can read this book meant that it far outpaced the Buffett biography. It's basically cliff notes for how to assess various stocks. He explains fundamentals like p/e ratio and market cap and tells you what to look for when considering adding a company to your portfolio. As I mentioned, it is dated -- he comments on the trendiness of acid wash jeans and the absolute strength of the newspaper industry and GE. But that almost makes the book's lessons more valuable. [...]


    21. A fantastic history book. A fund manager who rode the massive bull of the US until the 90s.Odd notes such as: 1400 stocks in his portfolio, the whipsaw moves of Mr. Market in the 70s,Candid disclosures of some of his many mistakesHow to hold on to the 'multibagger'The power of growthBrilliant tables of quality and crap companies moving wildly because of mr. market - and one could picture how difficult it would have been to keep one's head while everyone was losing theirsDoesnt write much about p [...]


    22. Peter Lynch was the manager of the phenomenally successful (on his watch) Fidelity Magellan Fund, thus becoming a legendary figure on Wall Street. What he achieved is out of reach of everyone else but the methods he espouses here, and which contributed to his success, are not. Two characteristics underpin people who "make it" through investing: they simplify and they focus with the former as indispensible as the latter. Lynch hasn't written a How-to-Become-Peter-Lynch book but you only really ne [...]


    23. A wonderful read! I expected this to be akin to Rich Dad Poor Dad based on the cover's claim that you could use what you already know to make money in the market but was pleasantly surprised. Mr. Lynch classifies stocks in six main categories of his own invention and tells you of his personal experiences throughout. He warns of the perils of overpaying for an investment, the flaws in the human condition that makes for bad investing decisions (in The Mirror Test), and also warns of the potential [...]


    24. This was an all round excellent book. To begin with, I found the book funny and highly educational. Lynch's personal mistakes are disclosed in a candid manner and you end up learning quite a lot about what kind of opportunities or red flags you could be sitting on yourself. In fact, as opposed to what numerous others are saying about this book being focused too much on Lynch's personal style, in my humble opinion, I believe that his wisdom is still very much relevant in today's market, particula [...]


    25. Peter Lynch in his book "One Up On Wall Street" gives sounding advice on how to pick stocks, differences between companies and how not to fall under the influence of the ever-fluctuating market. A must read for everyone that plans or is involved in trading stocks regardless of the level of experience. Lynch also reminds us of all his failures and successes in picking stocks and how to avoid the same mistakes he and everyone else does. There is even a section in the book with a tldr (too long, di [...]


    26. For what it's worth, I did enjoy learning new things about stocks I didn't know before until they were repeated again and again. I understand, Lynch is writing to a large audience, some who don't pick up a message without its repetition, so for me hearing "trust your instincts; don't buy what's too good to be true!", it sounded like a very broken record. At some parts of the book, it became a strain for me to read because of how many times he'd say the same damn thing over and over again with nu [...]


    27. I'd say nice book, the author has used easy-to-understand words and I like that. It allows non-experience users to easily access to what he's discussing. However, I suggest readers to have to some what a little experience in trading. So that you understand and follow what he's discussing. I'm doing my 2nd time reading right now. I've felt that I read it too fast in my first run. So, I want to do it again to extract as much as possible from this book because I found this book to be very useful es [...]


    28. A wonderful example of a practical investing book. I can normally judge an investing book by how many paragraphs and key sentences that I highlight, and this book is now extensively marked!I would highly recommend this book to all levels of investor. Firstly, it contains many lessons learned from someone with an amazing investment track record, but who isn't afraid to admit and learn from his mistakes. Secondly, it is written in a language that anyone can relate to and the examples, albeit US fo [...]
