5.0 out of 5 stars Best market book I read in 2010 Dec 20 2010
By MARC TALBERT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Rotblut's, "Better Good then Lucky" does a great job explaining how to analyze a stock, finding research, putting together a diversified portfolio, and coming to your own concussion on which stocks to buy . Rotblut takes these four barriers in an easy well written way to make investing easier for the individual . After finishing the book I realized many mistakes I have been making over the years, Rotblut allows you to increase your odds in EVERY chapter of the book.

I have read over 20 financial books in 2010 and Better Good than Lucky is on top of that list.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read if you want to improve your investment results Feb. 25 2011
By Julie Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is not just another investment book to peruse and throw on the bookshelf. It's a primer on the risk/reward relationship that you will want to study carefully. After all, understanding risk/reward is the most basic assessment an investor needs to make before committing capital.

I particularly liked Chapter 9: How professionals create price targets and Chapter 10: Applying the risk-reward ratio to your portfolio.

As Charles says, "Smart investors create their own luck," and if you could add some IQ points by reading a book, this one would definitely do the job. Charles book is a "must read" for anyone who wants to improve his or her investment results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Focuses on the fundamentals Feb. 8 2011
By Jeff & Hilary Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As a financial services professional, I found Rotblut's book refreshingly suitable for investors of all levels. For the beginner, it is simplistic enough to grasp the basics. For the experienced investor, it offers some pertinent reminders important to security and risk analysis. Closer to home, I took a few ideas, ones that had long since been forgotten, and have implemented them to assist me in limiting risk within my clients' portfolios.
