      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Summary Of The Book

    The book, Beating The Street, is considered an excellent one as it provides very valuable insight into the world of finance and investing. Peter Lynch, who has tremendous experience in this field, has written it. He has a great deal of experience in investing, owing to the fact that he headed the Fidelity Magellan Fund for more than twenty years. During this period of time, this fund was considered to be the best in America.
    One of the most remarkable things about the methods incorporated by Lynch is that they are extremely simple and can be put into practice even by those who are new to this field. Amateur investors will also stand to benefit if they follow Lynch’s advice closely.

    Lynch also makes it clear that he stays away from any kind of intricate computer tricks while decides whether a company is worth investing in or not. Rather, he mentions that he considers the individual merits of each company before taking a call on them.

    One of the highlights of this book is the author’s list of principles, which are titled ‘Peter’s Principles’. These principles provide a great deal of information about the world of finance, which can benefit amateur investors and seasoned ones as well. All in all, this book is definitely worth a read.
