A. Thinker: Your Very Own Swift Kick in the Ass!

A Survival Guide for Real Estate Investment, the Stock Market, and Other People's Self-Indulgence
Email this review


A debut filled with broad advice, from how to achieve dreams to how to navigate beginner investment deals.

Formerly uninterested in his financial future, young entrepreneur Williams has set a goal of becoming a millionaire by June 2014. Williams’ research, ambition and effort inspire confidence, and he outlines the steps to his present mindset and budding success. In a conversational style, the author explains how to reshape bad habits by refining and prioritizing goals. He asserts the importance of conducting thorough research and provides ample resources for becoming a successful investor. The guide includes information for first forays into playing the stock market and gives examples of both smart and ill-conceived tactics and how these tactics affect investments in the long run. Ways to enter the real estate game of flipping houses are also detailed, along with tips for getting a high credit score, finding a trustworthy bank or credit union and purchasing a house for the first time. Throughout, Williams maintains an informal, wisecracking tone and speaks directly to the reader, asking, if “you wouldn’t take any crap from anybody in life…why take it from a stock?” In danger of becoming quickly dated, the book references specific websites for further information and reiterates the year 2013 as the time of its writing. It’s ambitious in its range of topics but serves as an introduction rather than an in-depth study. Where it lacks depth, it succeeds in its humorous, readable approach. Williams comes across as eager to share his knowledge as well as the ups and downs that marked his path.

Good basic guidance and encouragement for those interested in stock trading and real estate.
