My evaluation follows.
1) There is a small paragraph of good investing advice for every day of the year(2004 only). For example: "Don't trade on news... it can shake you out. Understand the company and how they are really doing before reacting to a single news item on the company."
2) It's spiral-bound, which makes it very easy to write in.
3) Nice small size makes it unobstrusive in your briefcase.
1) With two days on each page, there is very little room to write anything of substance. Just barely enough space to jot down 'Stocks to watch' & 'Today's Trades' on the small lines provided.
2) No factual information included from the authors past books. Only contains "Quotes", which probably aren't even his.
In closing, I will have to recommend:
"The Stock Trader's Almanac 2004"
First, I'm not convinced that people can actually see the classic patterns in charts that O'Niel and other chartists claim are evident. Recognition of patterns _in_retrospect_ is meaningless; if there's a reliable quantitative method to recognize patterns while they evolve, I expect that the owner of this technology would keep the method to themselves as long as possible. Advantages that the chartists claim would tend to lose their power as they become widely known, but only if they really work. If they don't work, there's no reason not to publish the methods widely.
A lot of this book shows readers how to use the information in IBD, O'Niel's daily newspaper.
Despite my reservations, this book contains lots of interesting and useful ideas. It's up to the reader to weigh the many sources of information and interpretations of meaning in this book. The book is no substitute for the reader's new ideas and the successful mixing and interpretation of the ideas in this and other books. Eventual synthesis of a winning strategy still requires aptitude, hard work, and experience - despite this book's title claim.
This is not about getting rich quickly - it's about investing in the most profitable companies on the market, and deciding when to sell and buy. I don't know why more investors are following this method. Even if you don't want to use the CAN/SLIM system you'll still gain a lot of knowledge from reading this book. My suggestion is to subscribe to the paper for a while, and you'll probably get the book for free.
