Required reading for anyone who likes money Oct. 5 2009
By The Straw Man - Published on
Format: Paperback
My brother has his MBA, pasted his Series 7 and is currently working in "finical planning" field. He knew that I was trying to make the best out of my savings and investments (IRA, money market, etc) so he bought me this book for my birthday this year. I have just completed this book and I have to say I am very impressed. "For Dummies..." books are usually pretty solid with regards to content and information, this book isn't an exception.

Eric Tyson is the author of this book and he provides very pragmatic insight on the world of investing. Tyson uses his professional experience, as well as explaining the complex world that is "investing your dollar under the U.S.A."! The fifth edition was published at the end of last year (2008), when economy in America really became crucial in the public opinion. Many people lost thousands (like me) and millions of dollars. Not to mention that the economy became a big "selling point" for the 2008 Presidential election.

This book also touches on buying/selling real estate, buying/selling a business, investing in stocks, bond, mutual funds, taxes and many other topics. Another thing that Tyson provides is "what not to do" with money and/or investments. Many times a non-example is more powerful than a basic example. Tyson also has the ability to keep the information grounded and cuts through a lot of the jargon, with sliding in bits of humor here and there.

I would recommend this book to anyone who cares about money and perhaps making more of it (who doesn't want more money?). I had several finical funds before I read this book (and still do), but after reading this book I have a better understanding how and when I will use the money I am saving/investing.

Informative book for beginners March 23 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very helpful from a high-level standpoint. As a person inexperienced with investing, it helped me to understand my options. I would recommend this book for anyone starting out. However, I think more detailed books are necessary to best understand specific subject matters discussed in this book.

Simple, to the point July 12 2010
By J. Gonzalez - Published on
Format: Paperback
A very straight forward book. General summary not so many specifics but exactly what it is intended for. Gives a broad explanation of all aspects of investment and a very good start up guide for people who do not plan on what to do with money. Thumbs up!

Investing for Dummies does it's name justice. It provides a very detailed yet elementary description that I could easily understand. If you are looking for 101 type information and are clueless as where to start, this is a great place

A little too basic March 7 2010

My title says it all! The book is a little too basic but then again, I should have realized that given the title! If you have ever had even some exposure to investing, find something at the next level. It would be a better investment! :)
