Format: Paperback
Along with O'Neil's excellent THE SUCCESSFUL INVESTOR, this book is one of the best introductions to growth stock investing available. He proposes a method (CANSLIM) to discouver what are the best candidates for investment and measure overall market health. BOTH are required for his method to work. The fact that it encourages the use of Investor's Business Daily (IBD) is not a drawback to my mind because market and industry trends change so frequently that you need a daily source of information to keep up with possible CANSLIM candidates. That being said, readers should realize that this method requires that you familiarize yourself with charts and that you be willing to take responsibility for your choices. Not everyone is willing to spend 10-30 minutes a day reading IBD. Many too, prefer to rely on brokers or a guru to make choices because it gives them somebody to blame when there are losses. IBD is useless for such investors.

If I had to summarize the CANSLIM method in a single sentence, I would say that it is a technique that allows individual investors to piggyback on the ebb and flow of institutional money. O'Neil strongly believes that markets rise and fall because of the daily collective decisions of thousands of domestic and foreign financial institutions (mutual funds, banks, insurance companies, hedge funds, etc.) moving billions of dollars around in search of growth. Compared to these corporations, individual retail investor have no influence. Also, institutional investors are much better informed about future trends than you or I can be. It follows, that we as individual investors can greatly reduce the chance element in stock selection by focussing only on institutional-quality companies currently in favour. Avoid penny stocks.

Most investors fail because they do not have a clear strategy. This book provides the reader with a clear investment strategy that was built on years of market experience. The book provides decades of examples and will serve as a life long reference guide. The best part is your learning continues when you follow [...] or subscribe to the Investor's Business Daily (IBD) news publication. This book has helped me in my pursuit to be a better investor.

Having purchased and read a large number of the leading investment books available on Amazon, I feel confident in stating that the 4th edition of How To Make Money in Stocks is one of the best investment books available.
If you want one book that excels at tying technical and fundamental analysis together in a realistic and proven approach to investing, there is none better in my opinion. The 4th edition includes the addition of 100 stock charts in the first chapter that display the characteristics of a winner. This addition alone adds tremendous value to the book.
Yes, the book does reference and promote the authors publication IBD, but if you keep an open mind, you will see that the 2 publications are a valuable asset to the informed investor's tool kit.
But don't just take my word for it. Do yourself a favour and read the other reviews on Amazon.com.
If you decide to buy the book and study and apply the wisdom that William O'Neil provides, you are well on your way to financial success.

Format: Paperback
I have bought and read several books on CANSLIM trading strategy including this book. The book describes a very appealing method of identifying "good" stocks. After applying the method to actual trading and lost a lot of money, I start to realize that CANSLIM is a method very difficult to master and implement. One of the main reasons is that the stocks identified by CANSLIM are quite volatile as very high expectations have been build on them by the market. Any earning issues can cause 10% to 20% drop of such stocks. So there is a lot of whipsaw losses and, at the end, there is no gain. If the market is in an uptrend (the word M of CANLIM), the method may work well. However, many other methods can also work well in an uptrend. In summary, this is a somewhat useful book to gain new perspectives on trading. However, one has to be very careful to applying what are explained in the book.

Great concept with real potential but as you progress through the book it becomes clear the sole purpose is to get you to sign up for investors.com or other IBD services. Without the investors.com junk I would give it a 4
