"Charles Payne′s book is blunt, provocative, and right on the money. This book is a lot like Charles himself: insightful and to the point. If you have time to read only one book on how to make money . . . this is the book."
—Dr. Bob Froehlich, Chairman, Investor Strategy Committee Deutsche Asset Management, and Vice Chairman, DWS Scudder
"Be Smart, Act Fast, Get Rich is a book for all investors from first–time stock buyers to seasoned investors. ′Be Smart′ suggests you understand the fundamentals of the company you are purchasing. ′Act Fast′ suggests that action must be taken if you are going to increase your wealth in the stock market. All too often we find interesting ideas to invest in but never have the confidence to act, only to watch the stock′s price rise while others reap the benefits. This book is an easy read, and a must–read for all investors."
—Tom Dorsey, President, Dorsey Wright & Associates and author, Point & Figure Charting
"You should buy this book just for the super job Charles does in explaining everything you need to know about charts, graphs, and the other ′voodoo′ of technical analysis that he makes so simple to understand. Charles really gives you a street fighter′s education in the markets . . . I wish his book was around twenty–five years ago . . . it would have saved me millions in market mistakes I′ve made."
—Tobin Smith, founder and Chairman, ChangeWave Research
