#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELER - The clearest and best book out there to get you on the path to riches. This one's special --Jim Cramer, host of CNBC's Mad Money

Great tools for anyone wanting to dabble in the stock market.--USA Today

Phil Town is a very wealthy man, but he wasn't always. In fact, he was living on a salary of $4,000 a year when some well-timed advice launched him down a highway of investing self-education that revealed what the true rules are and how to make them work in one's favor. Chief among them, of course, is Rule #1: Don't lose money.

In this updated edition to the #1 national bestseller, you'll learn more of Phil's fresh, think-outside-the-box rules, including:
- Don't diversify
- Only buy a stock when it's on sale
- Think long term--but act short term to maximize your return
- And most of all, beat the big investors at their own game by using the tools designed for them

As Phil demonstrates in these pages, giant mutual funds can't help but regress to the mean--and as we've all learned in recent years, that mean could be very disappointing indeed. Fortunately, Rule #1 takes readers step-by-step through a do-it-yourself process, equipping even the biggest investing-phobes with the tools they need to make quantum leaps toward financial security--regardless of where the market is headed.

   Practical Advice on Stocks
I attended his free seminar five years ago. It was a long day, but I got down to reading his book. Good advice for stock investors and how to do it if you do your homework, he said. It takes an average of 15 minutes to do all the calculations, and he has five stocks to recommend. That is, until 8 a.m. Friday, when the government shut down for the day. It's just that you have to follow it diligently every day. The Government would not reveal the identity of the leaker. But the stock market often demands complicated calculations that are often difficult to predict. But it takes a lot of practice, like any other physical activity.
   Well written and full of useful insight for the average would be shareholder.
It's written for the average person who is thinking about buying stocks but it's too overwhelming a person to try and do that. It's the type of book that you read more than once and parts of it several times, Raymond said. I recommend it for anyone who has thought about investing but could use a bit of hand-holding along side solid advice.
   Simple to grasp yet comprehensive
The book was also praised for its witty one-line quips. This book is a great starting place, said Barbara Comstock, executive director of the Children's Book Council.
   Best of the Best - Town Rules!
I have never read a book like this one. Gives extremely useful advice on how to perform fundamental analysis, then follows through with a simple approach to technical analysis useful in every day trading. Since I took it up, I have never failed to profit from my investments. This book is for anyone who wants to plan for the future, but doesn't have an abundance of resources. Warren Buffett's company has used small stakes in other ventures to turn a profit.
   Great for those of us who are new to investing
Like most investors, I'm not a big fan of volatility. Thanks for introducing investing in stocks and making it understandable. Thanks for the tools! It made me excited to try another way of investing, he said.
   Great Book!!!
I have already started investing before reading this book, but I didn't have the right methods and techniques to go about my investing. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to make money.
   It's the one
A must-have book. If you are tired of hearing voices of lesser minds, then dream big. Follow what you are told and it is all yours.
   Slow and Steady Wins the Race!
Great investment education, easy to follow, Raymond said. Traditional stock market traders often complain that they are outmaneuvered by new players. Rule #1 Don't Lose Money, Rule #2 Don't Forget Rule #1.
   An Amazing Book To Manage Your OWN Money - Easily!
This is a wonderful book about investing, mostly for beginners, Raymond said. It takes you from knowing nothing to a master in a very short period of time. What I love most about it is that it takes you by baby steps in a very easy way to follow, Ms. Kennedy said. Also because it was written a few years ago, there are some instructions about some pages like MSN or Yahoo Finacial but you don't need it if you want to do all the work for you. Outside that in his website ruleoneinvesting. com you will see a Free Investing Course that is incredibly good and as the word says it is free.. all is there in black and white just the truth.
   This book is better to have inperson, but as a Kindle reader.
I found the book, Rule #1 The Simple Strategy for Getting Rich in Less than 15 Minutes a Week, to be very hard to follow if you did not have the book in hand. The book makes many references to charts and graphs that I did not have in hand, due to purchasing the book as a Kindle e-reader. If one cannot read the charts and graphs, the book is not worth reading.
