2008 has not been too kind for stock market investors and traders. The Indian stock market has shed as much as 25% since the beginning of this year. Investors have lost money in tune of thousands of crores.
I have been an investor in Indian markets since last couple of years and have seen the crash of May last year. However, the current situation seems to be far more worse as it is coupled with global downtrend in Economy.
So what should investors do in such circumstances? Should they stay away from the markets or do they still have a chance of making money?
I suggest you pick up a copy of “Invest the Happionaire way” book by Yogesh Chabria.
I must admit that I have just skimmed through the pages, but what ever little I have read, it comes across as a fun and interesting way of creating wealth through the Indian stock markets.
The book starts with a story of how Yogesh started his own business and entrepreneurship journey right from during his school days by setting up his own stall for a day. From there on, the entire book moves like a story narrated by your close friend as to how safe it is to invest in the share market, how to choose the companies to invest, how not to
Yogesh seems to have a good sense of humor throughout, which makes the odd four hours of time required to finish this book more interesting and worth while. Some of his quotes that are worth mentioning are Stock Analysts predicted nine out of five market crashes!
Don’t invest in the golden egg. Invest on the hen that lays this egg!
There is not even a single page that you could skim through and skip!
Every page including the back cover has some meaningful content in it, which is very surprising, given the fact that this is Yogesh’s first attempt with a book.
Overall, I feel that this book is definitely worth the Rs. 499 price tag and a highly recommended read for people afraid about share market, first time investors and people who are constantly watching the stock prices of their favorite stocks. This book is available at all Crossword stores according to their website.
“Invest the Happionaire way” is probably the first Indian book that has its own website and blog. If you are a stock market enthusiast, you should subscribe to his blog for some great informed reading.
At the moment the book is only available only at Crossword bookstores. Alternatively, you can order your copy online by sending an e-mail to [email protected] with your details and a request to buy Invest The Happionaire™ Way.
