I was at first hesitant to read Lessons From The Successful Investor. However, I am glad I finally did. "Lessons" offers sound investing advice in 85 short bursts. There is no filler. Mr. Speziale also suggests undervalued stocks that have recently performed very well in the market i.e. Manulife Financial, Enbridge... If you are a value investor or dividend investor, you owe it to yourself to read Lessons. If nothing in the book is new to you, it will certainly solidify your investment philosophy. The only glaring errors as echoed by some other reviewers are the few spelling mistakes throughout.

Clearly and concisely outlines straightforward techniques for analysis of potential stock purchases. Easy to read and effective, however, in some places, a good proofreader could have helped smooth out the language. I didn't find this to upset my understanding.

This book is an absolute must for all new and inexperienced investors. Mr. Speziale clearly indicates his investing philosophy and the reasons why it is successful. While he does not explicity list his portfolio, he illustrates many examples of stocks that fit his investing philosophy and it is easy enough for the reader to follow the stock to see if the choices have been successful. This book has given me the confidence to be able to manage my own portfolio.

This book is exactly what you'd expect from a new university graduate: it's full of unfounded "facts", hero worship (Buffet, naturally), and hubris. What's lacking is the useful information found in investing books worth the time to read. Or any proof of the author's "success", even if only random good luck.
Ellen Roseman says, "Impressed to see a young man teaching others about his investing secrets, I invited him to speak to my class last week. He delivered a PowerPoint presentation with confidence and economy, finishing exactly within his allotted half hour. I was impressed.". I have to agree: it's nice to see a powerpoint presentation end on time.
Mr. Speziale, if you're reading this: please get a dictionary and learn the difference between "entrench" and "encroach". The rest of the text needs serious work, but this made me cringe.
The $0.00 I paid for this book still wasn't worth the cost. See more for yourself here: http://www.moneyville.ca/blog/post/871274--23-year-old-writes-book-on-investing#comments
