Everything in Nicholson's investing method is fully disclosed simply and with a minimum of market jargon. The central idea is how to manage risk in order to grow capital and secure a stream of dividends. The various risks to be managed are explained, along with strategies for managing them. Aspects also covered include:
- how to improve your decision-making skills, modelled on the way the best investors think
- what is needed to succeed and why having an investment plan is crucial for success
- how to select stocks, using charting and fundamental ratios in combination to achieve a margin of safety

The methods are brought to life through case studies based on real investments and the sharing of insights gained from years of experience and research. This book will change the way you think about the stock market forever.
