9781533087140: Nobody Knows Anything: Investing Basics Learn to Ignore the Experts, the Gurus and other Fools

It may be as important for investors to know what not to do in investing as to know what to do. While investors are bombarded with the "buy me, buy me" books, little is said to train them in what to avoid. Nobody Knows Anything teaches investors what to avoid and how to trade using their own knowledge and experience rather than simply following the lemmings over the cliff of the latest investment craze. The book will teach an investor about human behavior, contrarian investing, deviation and regression to the mean and other simple basic tools of investing successfully.

About the Author:

Robert Moriarty was born in New York state in 1946. He began training as a military pilot in 1965 and became the youngest Naval Aviator during the Vietnam War in 1966. With two years in Vietnam and some 832 missions in combat, he left the Marine Corps in 1970. He worked in computers for a few years before beginning a 2nd career as a ferry pilot delivering small airplanes all over the world. He made over 240 ocean crossings mostly in single engine airplanes. He and his wife of 25 years were computer consultants and began one of the earliest online computer retail outlets in 1995 before retiring in 2000. He began another career running a financial website in 2001 specializing in resource companies. He continues to travel the world looking for the next great mineral discovery and writes in his spare time.

Review:

A truism states that the best things in life often come in small packages. If that's the case, then for the wise investor - and those who desire to become one - Bob Moriarty's newest book, in an action-packed 113 pages - Nobody Knows Anything: Learn to Ignore the Experts, The Gurus and Other Fools, fills the bill.

Robert Moriarty has written a good book based on the common sense learned from decades of experience. He does not intend to make friends or sugarcoat his analysis. He wants to help readers make money investing, but far more importantly, he wants to minimize losses by following basic logic. As he says, "learn to ignore the experts, the gurus, and other fools."
Read the book!
It is easy to read, logical, and rather cynical, based on years of experience watching people do stupid things. The crowd is almost always wrong at turning points. We know this and mostly we forget it. Moriarty reminds us again and again. Look at sentiment, ignore the politicians and experts, especially those with an agenda, and remember that markets always correct and regress to the mean.
Be suspicious of politicians and experts - he gives many examples and is not worried about alienating people. He calls it as he sees it - not everyone will agree.
But the most important chapter, in his opinion and mine, is the chapter "When to Sell." This chapter deserves a second reading.

Great little book. Easy to read and very interesting. Good advice and those who take it to heart will be financially rewarded. The problem is it so well written that people who really need to pay attention may not realize how difficult it is to follow his advice. I can't recall the trader who said it but Mr. Moriarty has brilliantly stated the simple part: "It is simple but not easy." This cannot be emphasized enough as NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHING clearly lays it out for those willing to learn. This is one of the best books ever written on investing and don't let the small size or price fool you.

Absolutely worth reading. Some of it sounds like crusty old Bob which is ok. Age and wisdom come together when you have a brain. I got one real valuable pearl of advice from his wisdom on how to take a profit from a winning stock. This solved a big problem for me right now. His advice on avoiding listening to shills and fools is spot on. Buy this book.

I have many books on investing and the reality is that they have not been worth the purchase price and they certainly haven't helped me make money. Bob Moriarty's book is quite simply one of the best books I have read on investing and I feel will prove to be invaluable to any investor or trader.

I've followed Bob Moriarty on his very informative investment web site 321gold for many years and listened to his interviews on financial radio programs. Bob is a true authority on the geo-politics of the world. It then comes as no surprise he's written a concise, educational and in my opinion a must-read book on the psychology of investing, the timing of buying, selling and above all else thinking for yourself. I think it's a great read for the seasoned trader or the newbie investor.

A great book that really cuts to the chase about how to speculate properly in the natural resource sector. Bob shares his accumulated wisdom about things that really take years of experience to figure out. The junior resource sector is different than general stock investing and knowing when to get out is arguably more important than knowing when to get in. A true gem in an industry filled with people who make money by telling you what you want to hear or by simply drawing lines that go up in a chart projection.
