I can't stand authors that 'yell' at you but James Cramer has so many good points to make that I'm managing to persevere anyway. I have too many personal finance books on the go so it will take a bit longer to finish. Update: I skimmed the rest of the book and put it away. The last half of the book is mostly about buying and selling stocks and 'beating' the market. I am years away from trying anything like that. I actually don't think this is a strategy I'll ever try so it seemed a waste to spend more time on this book.
