Publisher's Summary

This concise guide will teach you all you need to know about investing, cutting through much of the waffle and technical terms you may encounter in other mammoth investing books.

Real investing is not about following the financial news or selecting a few companies you think have potential for huge growth - that's actually how people tend to lose money - real investing is actually far more simple and passive.

The simple fact is that, given enough time and an easy yet disciplined approach to investing, anyone, even those on minimum wage their entire life, can become a millionaire.

You will learn:

  • Investing basics
  • What to do before you begin
  • How to invest
  • Why index funds do so well
  • How to purchase your first index fund
  • Common mistakes to avoid
  • Axioms to follow

This book is not a get rich quick scheme - investing takes time. Done properly however, investing will make you rich!

The advice given in this book is proven to work historically, and is the very same advice given by perhaps the greatest investor of our time, Warren Buffett.

Great for beginners and all investers

Would you listen to Investing for Beginners again? Why?

I would review it again to remember it all. I would review it with a friend, to share the information, and invest together. Somehow friends make you more accountable to commit to your goals.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that all investers can learn from it.

What does Shelly Tumbleson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I appreciate being read to because it forces you to listen actively while taking notes. It also makes you listen all at once. The pause button only allows for breif bathroom and meal breaks. Reading allows for more breaks, and the longer one stops reading, the likelihood to return to reading is not as great. I do not read as fast due to extended breaks and distractions. A reader tells you how much time is needed to listen.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire book moved me. I took many notes. I want to review it more, and share it with friends, and listen together.

Any additional comments?

I wished the author recommended other books to learn beyond the beginner level of investing.

Decent guide on investing.

Investing is very different than speculating. Those who "buy low, sell high" with stocks play a risky game that is usually not any different than gambling. Furthermore most online traders lose money over time trying to "beat" the market. Forex trading is the worst offender, usually offering odds worse than casinos. True investing disregards those flashy concepts and rather focuses on the long-term truths of the market- it will increase slightly over time.This is really useful for the investors and i will recommend this to everyone...
