Format: Paperback
Wow! This book is incredibly well written.
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!

Format: Paperback
This book is a *primer*, and as such will likely be neither the best nor the worst book you'll ever read on the subject of investing (fwiw, I actually found the content average, and the writing style a bit like summertime in the Sahara). For me though, the book earned its fourth "star" for a single--yet *really* important--reason: its connection to the IBD newspaper. For about $25, _Guide to the Markets_ explains much of its information using the same graphs and other formats as you'll find in the company's daily. *That* is a great deal considering that IBD is one of the best, if more expensive, investment tools available. For its ability to cheaply provide access to that very powerful tool, while also providing other occasional insights, _Guide to the Markets_ is a very good value. (It's nicely indexed enough to serve as a solid reference as well).

Format: Paperback
This book is actually half decent it isn't near as good as How to make money in stocks but it covers a lot of relevant information for newer investors.
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
* Options
* Bonds
* 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.

Format: Paperback
This book provides the reader with a thorough discussion of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, futures, and options. It does a very nice job of explaining how they are traded on the market, and it uses very clear illustrations to describe some of the most common terms associated with the markets. This book is very informative. It is helpful to anyone that does not know how to look up stocks in the newspaper. Everything the reader needs to know about getting started in the stock market is explained. Both beginners and advanced investors will benefit from the book, especially the beginners.
