I love this book as it walks me - the dummy through everything I need to know before I jump into the sea and drown myself. I would recommed it to serious investment learners.

This isn't the only good book on stock market investing out there... but it's one of them. Jason writes in an entertaining style that keeps the language of stocks from making the book too dry. If you want to get into the stock market, I recommend this book.

I have read few books as a beginner and found this one the best one. It guides you completely through the learning process and even helps you to make your first portfolio. A must read if you want to begin investing your hard earned money and not losing it.

Since when is stock market (or any other kind of) investing so easy? With this book, Jason Kelly explains in relatively simple terms using a basic, simple example (too simple in some cases, but whatever) why stocks and stock markets exist, how they work, and how to use them. Then he goes on to explain how to select companies in which to invest. This is much more difficult and can only be mastered (does anyone ever really master it, other than Warren Buffett?) with practice over time.

Bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this to friends and colleagues.

I got this book because I didn't know a darn thing about stocks. Before this, stocks to me were nothing more than fluctuating numbers on the bottom of the news channel and crazy charts for business people. Boy was I wrong.
This book is very well organized and well written (has many editions, written and developed over the last decade).
It has everything you could ever need.
Many of my questions were answered, some I never even knew that I needed to know about.
Some of my most favourite parts are:
Stock lingo and jargon, what stocks are, why they're important, why stocks affect us more than we think and vise versa, how many approaches there are to investing, and finally the book provides you with the tools and resources needed to start a portfolio.

I bought this book because I knew nothing about the stock market. The book introduces you to the basics and also the different measures that constitute a good company. The provided sheet at the end to identify good investments is also very handy.

The book also talks a lot about the 2008 crash in the automotive industry and what warning signs were available to avoid catastrophic loss of investments. All in all, good read.

This very nicely written book walks the reader through the 'language'' of stock markets. The review of the masters
of investing is very helpful so the investor can choose the path that suits him best. I like the author being candid about his own experiences. The book serves as a reference for several 'must read' authors for the serious investor.
The book proposes an investing philosophy with some thirty metrics checklist and fufill it's goal of investing in a company as tough you were going to buy the company.

Very good and easy to understand. Excellent for begginers and intermediate investors. Jason kelly explains and provides many ways as to how to research and understand stocks. He also provides a couple of worksheets that we can use to do our research. Those worksheets made my researching much much easier to follow and understand my stocks.

Great book and mildly comical which keeps you from falling asleep (as a lot of investment books do). Explains what to look for when reviewing company financials and how each should play a role in your decision. Easy to read for new and first-time investors.

My first investing book I read and it really shows the basics and all the different ratios as well as their meanings! I highly suggest it to everyone who's just learning! It is really not a advanced book so avoid if you know the basics !
