Reviews - What do customers think about The Investment Club Book?
Somewhat informative, but too much info Jun 24, 2000
OK, I already know how to invest money, so all I was looking for was a book to give me the specifics on investment clubs. This book covers that, but about 1/2 of it is about stocks, bonds, etc., basically, things I wouldn't need to get out of it. Also, the author is tied strongly to the NAIC, an association for investment clubs, and plugs it throughout the book. My opinion is that, for the same reasonable price, you can get a slightly better and more updated book through the Motley Fool collection...
From an Investment Club member Dec 31, 1999
Having read the NAIC investment club book, Starting and Running a Profitable Investment Club : The Official Guide from the National Association of Investment Clubs, and reading this book, I found the former book much more detailed and useful. I found The Investment Club book to be little more than an endorsement for the former. I would recommend saving your time and money and purchase Starting and Running a Profitable Investment Club : The Official Guide from the National Association of Investment Clubs.
Best answer to "why start an investment club?" Sep 1, 1996
Author John F. Wasik claims his book is more "informational" than "a fun read," but I'd have
to disagree. While Wasik packs in the material (this book is nothing if not comprehensive),
the most compelling part of the book to me is the "true life stories" of successful clubs and
successful club members. The book never reads like some inspirational Reader's Digest,
though, as Wasik lets the clubs tell their own stories, stepping aside to allow the reader to
soak up hundreds of collective years of club experience as related by otherwise-average
individuals from all across the country. Wasik may well be the most accomplished writer of all
the investment club book authors, and he approached the book with the proper reporter's
objectivity. Still, it's clear that he is impressed with the success of the investment club concept,
and by the members profiled in The Investment Club Book. For readers interested in the
answer to the question, "why start an investment club," this book provides the answer.
