Publisher's Summary

You know you need to start investing because you won’t be able to work your whole life. You don’t want to be the old employee working as a door greeter at your big chain department store. It will also be frustrating and very depressing if you are not financially aware of your future. Time seems to go faster the older you get, and it’s never too late to get started.

But getting started might be one of your problems. There is too much information available, and too many scammers are trying to get you to invest in shady companies. You also don’t have the time to figure everything out by yourself because it might seem too hard and complicated.

However, getting the investing part of your life handled will improve your life tremendously. You will have peace of mind when you think about your future, and you will also have the confidence to make sound investing decisions. You’ll also have the knowledge to talk intelligently with your peers and financial advisors, making it easy to spot when someone is giving you wrong information.

I begin with the basics, like what stocks are and how the stock market works. I then transition into how you can make money in the stock market, give you some stocks you should have on your watch list, and some of the lies and mistakes you will have to deal with as an investor.

good start

I knew absolutely nothing about stock marketing at the start of this book. This would probably only greatly benefit those of my same knowledge level on the subject. It was simple to understand, clear, concise, and not overwhelming. It was just enough information to give me a good starting point and understanding on the subject without discouraging me from delving into it from how deep I'm sure you can go on the subject.

Good for beginners

Overall it’s a great book for the very basics of stock. You will not learn much from this book such as charts how to predict certain things or how to get good results with stocks. This book is for someone who barely understands what the stock market is and what it’s about.

Before reading all else, Read this book!

Stock Market Investing 101! He breaks it down in the simplest form. I also liked that he kept it to an hour where he doesn't lose your interest and you fall asleep trying to soak it all in. Highly recommended.

NAIL ON THE HEAD!

For a total novice like myself, this book was a simple read. It got straight to the point and broke down terms in the most uncomplicated ways possible. If you're even thinking about investing this is definitely a good book to start off with.

Great start to learning this crazy subject!

I'm a 31 year old bloke who wants to get a bit of extra cash, so thought about investing. I pick this book because if I'm honest have no idea what I'm going into!! This book is short at around an hour, and is great to get an understanding of the crazy world that is investing!

Great Basic Info

As the title suggests, great book for beginners looking to understand the basics of the stock market and investing; especially if you are USA based; which I am not hence the 4 stars. Would still recommend to anyone through :)
