    Good for introduction, simple for knowledgeable

    This book is good if you have no clue about how Wall Street works. The reading is a bit slow but professional. The material seems outdated and extremely simple for anyone who is following the market.

    Turn your TV off and enjoy.

    Dissapointed

    This book is for people that don't know what a stock or a bond is. If you already know those things, this is not for you. One sentence on Options, and a couple pages on what a broker is.
    Also, I think the narration was a computer; put me to sleep very fast.
