Invest Like a Shark: How a Deaf Guy with No Job and Limited Capital Made a Fortune Investing in the Stock Market

Jonathan L. Berry, Author . Prentice Hall/Financial Times $25.99 (208p) ISBN 978-0-1322-1308-0

DePorre, noted stock market investor and writer for TheStreet.com and RealMoney.com, offers advice to small investors. The key to maximizing assets, he says, is shark investing—protecting capital while aggressively pursuing profits. Small investors' quickness and flexibility is a powerful advantage that they should exploit. But most small investors are passive, DePorre claims, holding investments for long-term gains, although this conventional investment wisdom results in only mediocre returns and carries the risk of greater loss. Maintaining the shark analogy, he tackles topics such as the myths of Wall Street, understanding market dynamics, portfolio management and how to put everything together, offering cogent, practical advice. Graphs and charts illustrate key points, in addition to a useful glossary. But the shark theme gets old quickly and makes otherwise sound advice appear gimmicky. However, for first-timers planning to enter the market or those hoping to improve their results, DePorre's advice will be a welcome guide. (Nov.)
