LEARN TO EARN by Peter Lynch and John Rothchild | Book Summary

True to its subtitle. “Learn to Earn” is a beginner’s guide to the basics of investing and business. Split into four uneven chapters, the book features a 70-page long history of U.S. capitalism, a brief dissection of the evolution of a company, a survey of the corporate leaders of America and – perhaps most indespensably – an introduction to the fundamentals of investing.
