Why Are We So Clueless About the Stock Market?

Most people work hard for their money, and it is sad to see them lose it so quickly in the stock market. They assume that because they are successful in their careers or businesses, they will be successful in investing.
A successful investor does not need an advanced degree in economics. He or she does not even need to be that smart. A successful investor only needs two things: 1) capital to invest and 2) the ability to recognize good companies when they are selling for less than what they are worth.
This book teaches investors how to recognize good companies, evaluate their current worth, decrease the chances of making investment mistakes, take advantage of Wall Street's short-sightedness, build wealth through stock market investing ... and much more.
