Customer reviews

"I think this is a nice, easy-to-read book, with interesting tips on investing. However, I'm rating only 3* because there are some annoying things: The author keeps saying he's no making any money from his continuous ADVFN ads, "special offers", "deals", etc. But it just looks the other way around. He also criticizes people selling expensive courses, but he insists on his useful, not cheap seminars. So... I liked the book, but this little things annoyed me a lot."show more
