Beating the Street is more a biography of Lynch's time at Fidelity (with a few asides about his wife and daughters) than a how-to manual about investing. Still, if you read through the I-did-this-then-I-did-that, you can pick out a few useful tips about choosing stocks. Reading this more than 25 years after publication, I was amused how so many of his "must-have" companies are no longer in business.

Epigraph
Dedication
To my wife, Carolyn, and our daughters Mary, Annie, and Beth. To my brothers, Eugene Lynch and Thomas Lynch, and my cousin Thomas Leahy.
First words
A retired fund manager is qualified to give only investment advice, not spiritual advice, but what inspires me to retake the pulpit is that a majority in the congregation continue to favor bonds.
