I have never read such a good instructive book on a complex subject before.
Comprehensive for all levels. It is so hard to get lost in the teachings which they give examples of real day life to what they discuss; ie: the companies you use to by getting ready for work in the morning (probably; Colgate Palm Olive)
They take you through every aspect you need to know from a-z.
After reading this, you'll confident to ride the stock market, or at lease watch the Finance Channel in the mornings - some thing they recommend.
Read this book and submerse yourself in pure financial stocks, shares and hostile takeovers. It is the best combination they suggest to becoming a savvy stock person.
Watching and reading stock market material is a subject they cover in being able to understand what it means, how it affects you as an investor and how it can effect other companies. Highly Recommended!
The chapters cover these wonderful topics:
* Capitalism: What it is and why it works
* The stock market: Primer on what stocks are and how the market works
* Mutual funds
* Futures market
* Economics and economic indicators
The book reminds me of Investing Smart however Guide to the Markets is at least 10 times better and covers more topics, not to mention the writers are much better than Dhun H. Sethna.
I recommend this for beginning CAN SLIM investors.
