There's nothing complicated or obscure about his writing style which is fine by me so long as there's content and, yes, there was plenty of content. Instead of filling the pages with dribble, he got down to the meat and potatoes of making money. Much of it I had known for years, but the funny thing is that I just didn't realize how fundamental it was. Then there were a few gems that I guess I sort of knew, but just didn't actually know that I knew. In short, both of these books got me thinking, but most importantly, they got me thinking for myself! In fact they got me thinking well beyond the content of the books! There's no magic to flipping a switch, but the resulting light can appear like a miracle. This is the effect of simplicity and why I appreciate these books so much.
I bought both books at the same time and after reading "Nobody Knows Anything" (published 2016) I dove right into "Basic Investing in Resource Stocks" (published 2019). Moriarty wrote these two books separately, but one flows into the other and they meld together so well that I really can't write separate reviews. I wonder if the publisher will ever decide to publish them together as one edition. It seems like an obvious discussion that has probably occurred already. I will post this same review for "Nobody Knows Anything" since the two books really do belong together and provide equally valuable insight in the same manner, although they are each very capable as stand-alone reads.
I just received another book by Robert Moriarty, "The Art of Peace" (published 2016). It's seems more of an autobiography than an investment book, but I'm grateful for the two that I've already read so finding out more about the author should be interesting.
I found this to be a no B.S. book on how the investment industry works, and doesn't. The book is a fascinating look behind the scenes of the stock market and at some of those in the industry that make it work, and some of those that don’t.
His Dozen Rules of Investing are worth the price of the book and more alone.
If you are new to trading then you will find this to be especially useful information, helping to avoid the pitfalls that most traders fall into. You will learn from Bob that not everything is, as it is told. He will teach you how investments work, and how to protect yourself from those who would legally steal your money from you given the opportunity.
I liked the way he covered the resource sector, and categorized the companies, great for making watch lists. His methods for handling risk and dealing with profits and losses made me rethink how I will handle my trades. One too many times the big ones slipped away, just from not knowing when to take some money off the table, or cut my loss. I wish I had this information 30 years ago.
Read the rest of the reviews here, and you, like me will be glad you bought this book.
I am eagerly awaiting a follow up to this book, as I am very curious as to what he has to say about the present state of things in the world today. (April 2020). I am sure it will be as colorful and entertaining as this book has been.
