Book Review: 24 Essential Lessons for Investment Success

24 Essential Lessons for Investment Success (2000) by William J. O'Neil

This book is organized into 24 "lessons" that consist of interview-style questions followed by the author's responses. A few of the lessons were interesting, but I did not care for the majority of them, such as the lessons on technical analysis (chart reading) and three lessons that are little more than advertisements for his paid-subscription publication. The lessons are purportedly based on a comprehensive study of 45 years of stock market history, yet very little data are ever presented and the few examples of actual stocks seem to be cherry picked.

Note: I read this book in October 2011.
