5.0 out of 5 starsGood book for beginners in finance.
Reviewed in the United States on April 13, 2019
If you've ever been stumped by the words that financial experts use most frequently, this is a good book to pick up. It's not just a dictionary with brief definitions of words. It'll provide a detailed description of what those words mean. What really impresses me is that it's not just a dry rehash of old information. It gets into some of the new stuff, like some of the basics of what investors should know about cryptocurrencies. (Despite what some crypto enthusiasts want you to believe, you don't really need to be a programmer or an economist to make sense of cryptocurrencies. You just have to know that exchanges can and have been hacked and millions of dollars in cryptocurrencies stolen, and it also helps to know what public and private keys are.) I'd say pick this book up is you have trouble finding any information at all on basic financial terms that actually makes sense to you. You won't regret it.
4.0 out of 5 starsProbably meant for business people but good info for anyone really

99 Financial Terms Every Beginner, Entrepreneur & Business Should Know (Financial IQ Series Book 1) by Thomas Herold
It's a brave new world when it comes to finance and this book highlights how out of touch with the current financial pulse worldwide most people are. Herold puts it out there is a succinct "Formal term name, Acronym, Definition, Real world application" style that is easy to understand and enormously informative for anyone from stay at home moms taking over the household finances to entrepreneurs seeing their small home business grow into multi-million dollar companies. Even if you think you know the basics, I would suggest reading this anyway because chances are, you don't know everything you think you do and you are probably wrong about half of what you think you know. At least that was my personal experience. I found that while I understood the foundation of things, I was clueless as to the layers of complexity that can be revealed. Overall, a very well done, informative financial building block.
4.0 out of 5 starsVery informative, but specific audience

99 Financial Terms Every Beginner, Entrepreneur & Business Should Know by Thomas Herold is a list of 99 terms with definitions and detailed explanations that will help anyone who is dealing with financial situations in either a business or in investing. The definitions and explanations do a great job of letting the reader know exactly what it is that they need to understand in order to be able to comprehend what is taking place financially within a business or operation. The terms the author chose to define are relevant to what is being used today in both the business world and online. Crypto currency is covered as well as traditional ways of investing both in person and online. The book was very informative and did a good job of giving the basic information that the reader needs to understand what is going on in their business or when they are investing. My only issue I have with this is that it is fairly specific to a certain audience. If a person is not running a business or heavily involved in investing, then most of this will not apply to them. Not that it is not helpful information, but it won't have as much meaning as it would to others. Overall, very good but not for everyone.
4.0 out of 5 starsComprehensive and well-explained

With the Blockchain technology entering the financial markets, most Financial books or dictionaries have become more or less obsolete, since they do not include any of the terms related to it. I found this compilation of terms –and their significance- very helpful for anyone; especially those in the desire of opening a new business or having a career in the Finance Field.
Moreover, some of the terms need to be understood by the majority of the people, regarding their profession; terms related to bank credits, house mortgages, etc. While one may assume that everyone knows what a “wire transfer” is, actually most people have a vague idea of concepts similar to this but d not fully comprehend them. The explanations are super user-friendly. I would’ve expected an index, a prologue or a conclusion of some sort. Other than that, I found it very helpful.
4.0 out of 5 starsI suggest you read this so you know what BIR (IRS in the US) is up to.

I've been trying to read financial books lately because one, I would like to break-free from my usual fiction dose sometimes, and two, I would like to learn more tips and tricks on how to gain that ever-elusive financial freedom. I found some books that are helpful, albeit expensive ones until I am reminded that hey, Kindle has a lot in store for you.
So, true to its title, 99 Financial Terms is a sort of an index of all the financial terms an entrepreneur, small business owner or an investor should know. I am not one of these, so I am trying to decide which one I should be so I'd be able to use the new knowledge I acquired after reading this book. Should I engage myself in crypto currency? How about be a financial advisor? I mean, this book is absolutely great, there's no doubt about it. But unless you're someone who has a small business going on or you're a stock market trader, this is something that you might not need. But there's a lot of information in this book, that's for sure. So to all small business owners (online selling is so on trend in the Philippines right now), I suggest you read this so you know what BIR (IRS in the US) is up to.
