In and of itself, this is a good book.
However, the vast majority of the information presented is merely a repeat of the information presented in "Personal Finance for Dummies" (also by Tyson). This book goes into a little more detail regarding the stock market.
However, if you are an aspiring day trader, or if you interest is very specifically focused on stocks and bonds, then you will probably be disappointed with this book. Tyson's approach is very broad, and not very deep. His target audience seems to be a group of people who have almost no knowledge of the types of investment vehicles that exist, rather than people who have basic financial knowledge, and are looking to focus on a specific area. If you fit into his target audience, however, you will probably find "Personal Finance for Dummies" to fit the bill even better than this book.
Tyson's approach to money management is classical and conservative. It will keep you afloat, but it will not make you rich. If you are interested in a more aggressive approach, I would recommend "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," by Robert Kyosaki.
