    Comments about Top Stocks 2017:

    If you have an interest in the Australian stock market then you must have this book!
    I think this is the twenty third edition and they get better every year. More informative than any high priced stock exchange newsletter. If you can't save ten times the price of this book in a few trades then you shouldn't be in the market!
