Completely updated and expanded 3rd edition

The most entertaining book on how to trade shares is back - and this time it's even more revealing. In this completely updated and expanded third edition, top trader Robbie Burns gives you the lowdown on the trading strategies you need to make money from the stock market without having to sit at a screen for every second of the day. Robbie quit the rat race more than ten years ago, and believes you can do it too.

The first two editions of The Naked Trader flew off the shelves as the glowing reviews from readers mounted up. This brand-new third edition contains even more essential content than before: more vital tips, more key facts, more ideas, more insights, more real-life tales and an awful lot more toast. Not to mention twice the number of secret trading strategies: 20 proven techniques that you can use to make money from the markets.

Trading shares, eating toast, making money

Robbie, aka the Naked Trader, is your expert and highly entertaining guide to the often baffling world of the stock market. In between cups of tea, rounds of toast and watching "Cash in the Attic", he describes the straightforward techniques that have enabled him to succeed in the markets, escape the rat race and ensure he never has to wear a tie again.

This book tells you all you need to know to become a successful investor. From how to find good shares in the first place, ensuring you don't buy a complete stinker, to getting your timing right, minimising your losses and learning how to let your profits run. And for the first time, find out how Robbie even made money and protected himself during market meltdowns and how you too can defend your trading when the market throws a wobbly. He also happily reveals his mistakes too.

If you're a complete beginner you can start here. And if you're currently trading but want to learn some new ideas, get reading now! The Naked Trader is packed with practical and easy-to-follow advice, with none of the incomprehensible jargon found in so many other books. Robbie hates jargon and writes in plain English! Whether you just want to make a few quid on the side while you're at work or eventually you want to go on to make money from the markets full-time and quit work like Robbie, this book is all you need to get started.

So grab some tea, toast and relax - and start trading the naked way.

"The Naked Trader by Robbie Burns sounds awfully like one of those 'How anyone can make money trading shares' books that wouldn't get a mention in this column. It really does say exactly that on the cover. But hey - to ignore the fact that this promise sells books would be very naive. It's what's inside that counts...recommended...as a gift for laddish investors."
