Introduction to Complete the Art of Investing

Instead of buying 16 books, why not buy one book consisting of 16 books? Besides saving money and your digital shelve space, it gives you quick reference and concentration on the topic you’re currently interested in. It covers most topics in investing excluding speculative investing such as currency trading and day trading.

It has over 800 pages (6*9), about the size of three books of average size. With the cost of $10 and at least 1,000 investing ideas, it is less than one cent per idea. Most books have only a few ideas in the entire book.

This book is based on “the Art of Investing” and its sequel “Investing themes”. It also includes the abstracts of many other books. It consists most of my investing experiences plus more than one hundred investing books I read.

The 16 books

This book “Complete The Art of Investing” is divided into 16 books as follows. Click for the link to the book described in Amazon.com and click “Book Location” to the location in this book. I squeezed more than 3,000 pages into 800 pages by eliminating duplicated information such as evaluating stocks.

The book links are subject to change without notice. Book Location links do not work as they're copied from the actual book.

“Beginners & Couch Potatoes” is for beginners and couch potatoes, who can use the advanced features of this book in the simplest and less time-consuming techniques. Most advance users can skip this section unless they want to use some of the short cuts described.

We start with the basic books Finding Stocks, Evaluate Stocks, Trading Stocks and Market Timing.

You can select and start with one of the many styles and strategies in investing such as swing trading and top-down strategy. Many old teachings even from Buffett are not useful in today’s market judging from their recent mediocre performances. 

Many tools are described such as rotations of ETFs, technical analysis, covered calls and trade plan.

Many books start with “Why” to lure you to read more and are followed by “How” and then the theory behind the book.

Many books have common chapters such as Market Timing, Finding Stocks and Scoring Stocks. That’s the reason I can squeeze over 2,000 pages into this book.
