Publisher's Summary

Is it more important to buy a good share, or buy it at the right time? To rephrase, should you buy a good share at any time, or buy any share at a good time?  

Flirting with Stocks introduces the uninitiated to the world of share markets. Acclaimed financial expert Dr Anil Lamba begins with the basics of how the investment cycle works and builds up to the nitty-gritties of bulls and bears, mutual funds, kerb trading, badla finance and share-price fixing. Included also are case studies on asset bubbles and insider trading that are lessons for potential investors on how to make money while minimising risks.  

Written in Dr Lamba’s characteristic lucid style, this book makes stock market investing a non-intimidating, fun activity.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Worth the time if you want to learn the basics

It's a kind of book that you'd like to read rather than listen. There are many mathematical formulas mentioned to evaluate companies on several parameters which can help you decide to pick the stock that is promising. Listening to it wouldn't be a problem if you have a background of accounting and you are more or less in touch with it.

A book with minimum insights

The book promises to educate you or enrich you on Financial and Accountancy base.
But it is very basic and does not do justice to an investor who has been in market and wants to learn from a reputed writer (CA).

Good for beginners

Not for experienced investors, caution his investor philosophy is of a momentum investor. So if you're a disciple of Buffett you're not going to like much what he says about investments.

All and all an average book, will get boring at times even at 2x speed! :)
