Reviews

“The book you are holding is, hands-down, one of the most original and insightful books I have ever read when it comes to teaching you, the individual investor, not only why you have the ability to beat the Whales of Wall Street, but also how you can do it.”

–from the foreword by James J. Cramer, CNBC’s Mad Money and TheStreet.com

“Even investors who concentrate on fundamentals can benefit from Jim DePorre’s Shark approach to investing. At the very least they will know why, for a time, they can get the facts right but the stock wrong.”

–Herb Greenberg, senior columnist, MarketWatch.com

“There are very few traders who have RevShark’s intuitive feel for the market. I especially appreciate Rev’s unique ability to recognize and utilize the distinct advantages of being a smaller, individual investor versus the less agile large institutions.”

–Barry Ritholtz, Chief Investment Officer, Ritholtz Capital Partners
