Very important simple and basic things that tend to forget while investing in stocks have been written under short headings with tiny little icons are impressive. Like to read the book over and over, excellent read for new and intermediate investors .

Good read but had nothing that I didn't know before and I honestly don't know anything about stock investing other than what I see in news and television. The book actually kinda demotivates you from stock investing, it says if you are looking to gain money short term then better consider mutual fund or other ways of investing. Pretty much tells you stock investing is for long term. The math it teaches you is very simple, I feel anyone can understand it which is good but I feel I'm more of a mathematician so the math was quiet simple for me. Overall good book, will buy another as this one didn't do much for me.

Great intro book for getting into the exciting world of trading stocks. My only complaint is that, although they try to simplify the overwhelmingly confusing lingo of the trading world, they definitely miss the mark at times. In particular I remember one section of the book was explaining different trends in stock graphs with words rather than simply showing pictures of graphs. I'm a dummy, guys! C'mon. Other than some minor gripes like that, I've learned a lot and begun trading (smartly!). My investments are already up 5%.
