Good book for someone with a basic understanding of the stock market
Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2018
One Up on Wall Street is an easy, conversational read. The stories Peter Lynch tells about his own experiences are helpful to gain an understanding of where he is coming from regarding his view of the stock market. I gained valuable tips for which stocks to avoid, which factors to look for, when to consider selling, and when to buy. It seems consistent with other things I've read regarding the stock market but this book is a little more practical than the others.
Caution: This book assumes that you have at least a basic understanding of the terminology of the stock market, including options, shorts, etc. I struggled a bit with some of the concepts because of this.
What I liked about the book was the encouragement to invest in research and personal development and most of all to remain patient. Those are things that don't cost a lot of money and so anyone can get started and be successful with the stock market.
