    1. Regular re-read (every 5-10 years) of one of my two favorite investment books. (The other one is by the same author--the greatest mutual fund manager of all time). It's got everything you need to know about investing in stocks not by using some seat-of-the-pants method but by analyzing the company and its business. It's a must read for everyone who wants to buy individual stocks of any kind. Enjoy!


    2. I think there were 3 purposes of this book.1 - Get you excited to invest in stocks2 - Teach you to invest in what you know3 - Teach you to invest regularly and avoid psychological pitfallsIf you look at it as analysis on companies, it makes no sense, as it was written in the early '90's and not only are his analysis no longer accurate, some of the companies don't even exist in the same form.What you should look at is his methodology of gaining information and researching companies. His excitemen [...]


    3. I recommend this book to those: who are relatively new to the financial / investment arena and are looking for some insight into a sound investment *plan* and can tolerate some very outdated examples.----------I enjoy Mr. Lynch's insight into what makes a good investment plan and have gathered some very useful information from this book. I will admit to having to maintain a constant "what CAN I get from this example?" approach to a majority of the book as it is a bit out-dated. Then again, *wisd [...]


    4. Invest in What You Know and Like and Understand!“Twenty years in this business convinces me that any normal person using the customary three percent of the brain can pick stocks as well as, if not better, than the average Wall Street expert.” - Peter LynchOne of the wisest money managers of all time is Peter Lynch, the one-time portfolio manager of the spectacularly successful Fidelity Magellan Fund. He managed that fund for thirteen years and a thousand dollars invested in it when he starte [...]


    5. Unlike his other 2 books (One up on Wall Street & Learn to Earn), I had chosen to give this book 3 stars instead due to my own inability to relate much to the examples cited in the book. Overall, it was still a relatively easy read.I gave this book 3 stars as I had several difficulties in relating to the examples that were given in the book. My main take-aways were:1) Understanding the balance sheet (Pages 169 - 176)2) Need for 6 monthly check-ups on the stories of the stocks.3) The many dif [...]



    6. This book was written in 1993 and I dusted it off my book shelf and read it over 20 years later just to see what withstood the test of time. Although many things have changed in the past 20 years that are no longer relevant, a quick peruse of this book can give perspective to the ups and downs of the market and business in general. Lynch discusses both his hits and misses and it is fun to read where he did miss the mark. For example about the copper market he writes: "A traditional phone system [...]


    7. What I learned from this book is that to beat the street (meaning, earning a greater return than the average mutual fund or the S&P 500) you have to work harder than the street. To find one good stock you're going to have to research 10 stocks. That the only way to know which are the best stocks to own is to research and know every company selling stock in the world! Basically, that it's just plain hard work, because you are looking for stocks that the market has underpriced, either due to l [...]


    8. Good advice on investing, overall, from one of the most successful investors in history. Reading this book will not make you Peter Lynch, but eventually, even Peter Lynch bowed out of his Magellan fundRead it with a grain of salt. Lynch is a genius who landed on The Street at the best moment in history for his investing style. But today's successful investors will make their returns differently.


    9. Readability 7. Rating 6. I am making this entry and the next significantly after the fact. This one, however, is pretty straightforward. Lynch again takes us through his stockpicking methodology. He reviews how he picked stocks for the Barron's roundtable. Most valuable are his description of sector techniques, including utilities and thrifts, as well as more on retail firms. I also like the fact that he put in writing the prices for all of his picks at the time he made them. No fear.


    10. In comparison to One Up, this one sounded more like an old man trying to reflect on his glory days and insist "I told you so" at one part by his commentary of the collapse of Japan's bubble, whereas in the previously one he commented more in passing a simple "I thought it (their market) was overpriced."


    11. Very astute advice to the beginning investor. Especially someone who is trying to strike it rich in the market. Basically pay attention to your surroundings and businesses that get it right, then investigate.


    12. Great book! It is very simplistic in a lot of ways but lynchs goal is to demystify Wall Street, and I love the voice and personality that comes through. Very interesting book, written by one of the best investors of all time.



    13. You will get blown away by Peter Lynch's enthusiasm about stocks and stock-picking. Definitely a must read for any amateur of professional interested or dealing with stocks.



    14. I read it with the intention of understanding Indian share market scenario. However, the book is simply not adequately suited for Indian audience.






    15. If you've already read Learn to Earn(in case you're an amateur like me) and One Up On Wall Street, then there's not really much new in this for you. You can simply skip this one.



    16. Enjoy the thrilling journey, continued from One Up on Wall St, Lynch goes in detail of retail/restaurant stocks and portfolio construction strategy.






    17. If you absolutely insist on attempting to swing trade and purchasing individual stocks, you should at least read this book to glean some basics of the decision making process. The book is a little biased, because it focuses on a fund manage who stood out for his great success, while ignoring the fact that hundreds of others were throwing away peoples money and collecting tremendous fees for the privileged. Note: the style of trading in this book is antiquated and all but dead. The information is [...]


    18. I would like to read this book as five Star because it has a lot of information to know about the stock market and the nonsense that happens in the stock market after reading this book I had gained a lot of insight about the markets and how to read the markets and make a profit from it. Author clearly explains the trend of the market and how the market behaves in history and as well as in the contemporary world try to read this book and gain a lot from it those who are really interested in stock [...]
