I wrote The SmallIvy Book of Investing Book 1: Investing to Grow Wealthy to provide readers with the information needed to use stock investing to reach financial independence.  It could be used by people of any age who are interested in investing and setting up a healthy personal cash flow, but it would be perfect for someone just graduating from high school who hasn’t made costly financial mistakes yet.  Investing also favors the young since they have time on their side.

Given that this is my first book, I’d love to hear some feedback from anyone out there who has read it.  I might create a second edition after I finish Book 2, which will cover stock picking.  One thought that I have is moving the investment option descriptions further back (or maybe put it as an appendix) and start with the investing plan.  I’m sure that there are other suggestions.

Have you read it?  Or did you put it down after a chapter because it was too difficult to get through?  Are there things that were missing?  Things that you would take out or move?  Do you have some tips from the book you found useful?  Or useless?  Would you like to provide a review of the book for others (I’d be happy to put it in as a guest post)?

If you have any feedback, please let me know.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed the book Investing to Grow Wealthy. I am a 26 year old, working full time and going to school full time. I have always taken an interest in investing since a even younger boy, I believe I read how to make money in the stock market by O’niel when I was 15. Fast forward and within the past two years I have read all of Benjamin Grahams work, along with a few odds and ends, A Walk Down Wall Street for instance. Then along came The SmallIvy Book of Investing, which couldn’t have came at a better time. Giving credit to all the previous authors, neither of the above mentioned books gave me a clear cut plan of action. Graham taught volumes simply with his intrinsic value calculations, but I didn’t have a glut of money to start investing in the format he implies. Investing to Grow Wealthy gives a clear cut, simple worded, plan of action on how to progress through ones own investing career. The simple things like how eating out had a direct effect on ones brokerage account, avoiding time shares. Heck I have my own “timeshare” thanks to Sheeley, its called a Mutual Fund, and my timeshare grows in value with .09% “maintenance” fees. The discussion of cash flow and how to make it work in your favor is timeless, it reminded me a lot of Rich Dad Poor Dad as well as the Cash Flow quadrants written by Kiyosaki. And last but not least, buy enough shares of something so it matters when it works! I was infamous for buying 50 shares of a “hot” stock only to make a whopping $500 when in doubled, not a game changer at all. The SmallIvy Book of Investing is practical, sound, clear cut advice. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in financial independence, or better yet, everyone. Your financial future is in your hands, no matter how much you make, arm yourself with unbiased knowledge and reap what you sow.
