I got this book hoping it would not be a flop, and it definately is worth it for investers just starting out and looking for some guidance. It's tough to find a good book on the topic of investing that doesn't require a high base-line of knowledge, but also isn't a waste of time. This one is a great 'missing-link' for people who want to get started investing, but have no idea what a good or bad stock looks like.

The author starts out by going over the basics like what exactly a stock really is, and why people buy them in the first place. Even for intermediate investors, I think this is a good refresher on what you're actually buying with your money.

The second half of the book covers some easy and basic ways of evaluating stocks. There are countless ways to value a stock, and the ones covered in this book are for beginners, and gives them room to customize the process based on their own ideas. All the valuation tips are free online tools that anyone could find for themselves, but the book lays them out for you, and describes why it is a helpful indicator about a stock.

I have already recommended this book to friends who are interested in investing but have no idea where to start.

There is little information about ETFs and some of the other types in investments out there that can be done online, but then again, the title of the book is "how to buy STOCKS online".

Currently, I have a 401k at work and it unfortunately only allows us to choose selected mutual funds for our investment choices. I always wanted to try my hand at buying individual stocks, and so I wanted a solid understanding about how to invest in them directly online. I searched for "how to buy stocks" on Amazon, and this book was the first result. In my opinion, the author does a really nice job with this book...especially with educating us about the myriad of financial terms and what they mean.

Probably the highlight of the book for me was her very detailed and thorough 10-step process for evaluating whether an individual stock would make a good purchase. I seriously loved this info. She used "Target (TGT)" as the example stock and walked through all 10 steps on why (or why not) the stock would be a good buy. Her thought process was explained through each step, and she provided handy online links to free research tools she uses to review the company.

One minor nit was the clip art she used in the book. I felt it was unnecessary and seemed "cheap" especially when I felt the information provided was so valuable. The stock market graphs, trend charts, and other relevant financial images were great...but the Microsoft-like clip art could be removed and no one would miss it. (just my opinion of course)

Finally, I really liked the fact that even though she is an investment advisor herself, she never once tries to sell the reader on her company or her services. That's a rarity in the financial services business these days.

TL;DR - Great book for a beginning investor who is interested in learning how to buy individual stocks vs. mutual funds

Having made the mistake of jumping into the stock market in 2008, I learned some very painful and expensive lessons. If I had Michelle Price’s book then, it would have saved me a lot of trouble and money.
This book isn’t just a step by step guide or how to, but it is perfectly detailed to help you understand how and why the stock market works the way it does. Believe me it’s certainly not your grandfather’s stock market anymore. With computers and blazing fast internet, stocks get traded in the blink of an eye. Michelle’s book will help you understand the difference between stocks and bonds, brokers, and what they do. Are they the people you seek for financial advise… You’d be surprised but the answer to that is no.
If you’re going to trade in the stock market…grab this book as it will help you to know exactly what you’re getting into and aide you in becoming informed.

A great deal of, surprisingly, common sense, is present in this book.

Michelle clearly and concisely describes and demonstrates exactly how one might (and can) go about making a name for themselves in the formidable stock market exchange...

She never promises us riches and glory, though, never never. She leaves that up to our own intelligence and ability. She's just giving us a guideline, not a miracle manual.

She also never foists her own company on us. It is mentioned a few times, but I never felt pressured to run to her warm, Limited Liability embrace. That was a nice change. Never did I see, "This process is incredibly challenging if done alone, please give my associate a call at 1-800-Gimme-Money."

Most of the advice was easy to follow and intuitive for even the layman. Other bits were clearly something learned by someone well versed in the world and political spectrums of Wall Street. Having said that... She still manages to outline them in terms that are easy to grasp, understand, research and follow.

I've never delved into stocks, honestly, so I'm saying this from a beginner's perspective... This by far, was the easiest stock guide book for beginners I've ever seen. I regret the money spent on prior works and my only complaint is that wasn't brought to my attention sooner.

And I honestly think I could have a chance in the market after reading this. I don't think I'd ever get rich doing it... But I have a confidence that I could do well now, having such a great little teacher at my side. :)

Michelle... Thank you so much for your words of wisdom.
