Long time friend Howard Lindzon recently sent us over a signed copy of his brand new book The Wallstrip Edge: Using trends to make money – find them, ride them, and get off.
Howard’s writing style from his blog can be seen very clearly in his book, and for that you have to be a fan. I haven’t gotten to read through it all yet but Howard’s humor and straightforward opinions make the book not only entertaining but also educational.
Anyone who visits this site each day or knows me personally realizes I am a fiend for breaking concepts and material down. Howard does this perfectly at the end of each chapter by relaying his “to-do list” which more-or-less is a chapter summary. For example from the first chapter it reads:
- Turn off your TV to eliminate noise and anxiety about investing in stocks.
- Forget the blame game. You are in control.
- Opinions are like assholes…
- Stay open minded and avoid price targets.
- Invest – just start!
- Focus on opportunities and always be mindful of doing less.
Side note: For those who have CNBC on all day in their offices, god bless your souls. Read Howard’s book and take his first chapter suggestion to heart, don’t watch financial news 24/7. Instead watch your favorite program each day and leave it at that. I used to do the 24/7 route and it drove me absolutely crazy and I am only 22…
Bottom line, a big thanks to Howard for sending us a signed copy of his new book, The WallStrip Edge. Learn to profit from trends, keep the humor alive, and check out Howard’s blog at http://howardlindzon.com/, you can also follow him on twitter. Book image below, click to be taken to amazon.com.
