BOOK SPOTLIGHT & REVIEW: A Wall Street Bailout for Main Street: This Bulletproof Trade Will Help You Get Paid By Iris Marie Mack, PhD, EMBA

A Wall Street Bailout for Main Street: This Bulletproof Trade Will Help You Get Paid
By Iris Marie Mack, PhD, EMBA
Genre: Wealth Management, Investing, Business & Money, Options, Analysis & Strategy

Buckle up and settle in. It's payback time for small investors -- who want big returns. In her outstanding new book “A Wall Street Bailout for Main Street”, Dr. Iris Marie Mack uses her Harvard University and London Business School savvy to simplify what she calls a "bulletproof trading strategy" that even the most inexperienced investor can use to become wealthy over time. (She has a) gift for simplifying heretofore complex stock trading notions (and it) sets this financial how-to book far above others in its genre. Dr. Mack's impressive academic credentials don't keep her from relating easily to everyday investors. In fact, she seems to revel in imparting her knowledge. Her populist cry of "Don't get mad; get even!" will resonate soundly with retirees, students and everyone in between who are looking for a simplified methodology for extending their resources -- in a safe and sane manner.

My Review:

I am incredibly distrustful of wall street, the American banking institutions, and ALL representatives of corporations. That being said, this book is a valuable asset in explaining the economic climate of todays America, and restructuring personal assets within these parameters. Me personally, I have very little interest in how the stock market can work for me, and would not invest my time or money into it. But this book is a sharp how-to for the novice in understanding this world, and, more importantly, how to make it work for us, and not against us. Four stars.
