Tired of phony promises about getting rich quickly, promises that lead to reckless decisions (the stepping stones to the poor house)? How about trying something different? How about going for lasting wealth—and doing it the cautious way? In Get Rich Carefully, Jim Cramer uses his thirty-five years of experience as a Wall Street veteran and host of CNBC’s Mad Money to create a guide to high-yield, low-risk investing. In our recovering economy, this is the plan you need to make big money without taking big risks.

Drawing on his unparalleled knowledge of the stock market and on the mistakes and successes he's made on the way to his own fortune, Cramer explains—in plain English—why you can get rich in a prudent, methodical way, as long as you start now. In his own inimitable style, Cramer lays it on the line, no waffling, no on-the-one-hand-or-the-other hedging, just the straight stuff you need to accumulate wealth. This is a book of wisdom as well as specifics. Cramer names names, highlights individual and sector plays, and identifies the best long-term investing themes—and shows you how to develop the disciplines you need to exploit them.

The personal finance book of the year, Get Rich Carefully is the invaluable guide to turning your savings into real, lasting wealth in a practical, and yes—because this is, after all, a book by Jim Cramer—highly readable and entertaining way.


  • This book is a joke

    Talks about his past and doesn't teach you anything

    Jim recommended KMI all the way down to the bottom, he did not do any home work on MLP's and still pushed hope to stay in with "wait and see". There was nothing about being careful with this falling knife.

    As usual, Jim Cramer hits it out of the ballpark. During the Great Recession, I assumed everyone else on Wall Street knew more - if I trusted my money to others and was well diversified, our 401ks should not have become 201ks. That is when I started watching Mad Money and have bought all his books, along with educating myself concerning the markets. Yes, his books have changed over the years, but I believe the global economy and markets are continually changing. He provides the best insight for today's markets. Yes, when I'm doing my homework, it can be really boring. But when I think I've not only gotten back to even, but ahead, it is worth it. His book is not a get rich quick book, but If you follow his advice, your hard earned money can accrue.
  • Helpful already!

    50 pages in... I already feel more confident in my stocks and overall portfolio... Can't wait to find out how to navigate through all the garbage and pick other stocks to stabilize and build wealth... Will edit as I go along! Thanks. Hitting some roadblocks along the way, and I certainly don't agree with all his conclusions; but he definitely gives a new perspective on picking stocks -- with a broader understanding of both macro and micro economic factors and their effect on a stocks value and growth.
