Good Investment primer

This Audio Book is a good start in learning to invest in various markets.

If this is your first time in Investing I suggest you start slowly so you can absorb the material
more easily.

Investing for the long term is difficult it requires a great deal of knowledge and the ability to
quickly adjust if Market conditions change.

However, basic information which you can gain from a Book like this can give you more
confidence to enter a very important area of your life.

The Narrator did a good job with the material which you should do slowly since you need
to try to learn as much as possible from this Book and from as many sources as possible.




This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Enjoyed learning from this book!

I like that this book is an audiobook that comes with PDF and digital sources. It is easy to listen, read and understand the concepts. I sometimes listen to it while I am driving. It is a good idea to listen to it several times to deeply understand and absorb the material more easily.
The information provided in this audiobook is very useful to help beginners like me to know more about investing. I am planning to start investing in future and I am so happy that I ordered this book to have a better idea of investing. I am satisfied with my order and I recommend it.

Well presented

I have been wanting to start boosting my investment knowledge so was happy to see this book available in exchange for an unbiased review. There is a lot of basic information crammed into this little book! So much so that I think a second listen is almost inevitable. It doesn't go into great detail but gives an overview of pretty much everything.

If you are looking for a book on making a quick buck in the stock market this is not the book for you. The mantra in "Investing QuickStart Guide" is building wealth for the long haul and strengthening your retirement portfolio. There is a fair amount of discussion on the differences between investing and trading with a strong emphasis on the realities of the latter being a risky venture at best while the former will consistently develop wealth over time. There are no hot stock tips, day trading techniques, or gimmicks which gives the book more credibility in my eyes.

One of the issues I had with the book, though I am a fan of "accompanying materials", is that I found the constant reference to the diagrams in the .pdf pointless and distracting. We do not need a diagram depicting ownership of 10% of a companies stock or a chart showing growth of a stock; these are common sense points and need no additional explanation. Including them in the reference but not constantly pointing them out and describing them would have made the book easier to listen to.

Also, the author plugs his own business several times throughout the book. This wasn't to the point where I felt personally "invaded" or that the credibility of the book itself was compromised though. Because this is a beginner's guide and a detailed overview of so many topics it didn't feel like he was trying to sell his service to me.

Overall I'm glad to have listened to the book and I will likely give it another listen in order to better retain some of the material. There may be better overview's available but I thought this did a fair job. I would try out other ClydeBank Media titles based on my experience with this one.

Tons of great information for the new invester

I'm a newbie to investing and wanted to get some idea of what is involved, what types of things I can invest in and realistically, how much I would have to invest. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. When offered this book, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get some practical information from someone who knows what he is talking about. This is a fairly easy to understand guide. I find it's not a book I can listen to all at once since the stock market and investing is not what I find to be enjoyable listening. However, the more I am learning about it, the easier it is becoming. I've tried to talk to other people about finance and investing and always felt lost quite quickly. With this book, I was able to follow along without any problem...until I got bored and my mind started drifting off. I will be listening to this book several more times until I feel confident I understand everything. The narrator is also a major part of this book for me so I am pleased to say he did a fantastic job. He was clear and easy to listen to. For anyone interested in this book, I would definitely recommend giving it a try.
