Format: Paperback
I have to say that when it comes to investing, I am a novice. I typically go to a professional, or at least a friend that has more knowledge than I to make decisions. I guess it has a lot to do with the fact that this is my money and I don't want to screw anything up.

This book was a great book for the novice and expert alike. It provides so much information and is simple to understand. The author does a great job of explaining thing so that the reader can understand what has changed in investing and allows the reader to better understand what they can do to become more savvy in the investing climate of today.

The book is well written and the real life examples contained within it make it even easier to understand and relevant to the reader. A great book and one that I would highly recommend!
