this book has to be the simplest and easiest to read investing book ever written. Because of its brevity and straightforward manner, it can be read by any neophyte investor in a short period of time. GOOD LUCK!

I had read many investment books prior to Mr. Kelly's and only gained a modicum of diverse knowledge regarding the structure and function of mutual funds.

Because of his suggestions, I literally fired my broker--I know as much as the broker does regarding betas, alphas, deviations, etc. Indeed, a scary feeling. For those whose broker is making the profits, I highly recommend this book

I have been reading quite a few introductory books in Mutual Fund Investing, and I found this book gave the most comprehensive coverage with minimum reading. Besides, it also gave a lot of good tips and useful references (books, magazines and web sites). If you want to get a good overview on mutual fund investment, then this book is certainly a good start.

I bought two of these for my young-adult children. As a former stock broker, I know that the basics have not changed greatly since funds were invented, so even the old edition will teach them the fundamentals and terms associated with intelligent investing. This book covers all of the basics of investing and contains probably more knowledge than the average mutual fund investor has. I would highly recommend this book for anyone considering investing beyond your savings account.

I loved the cute illustrations and sketches peppered throughout this handy guide. Each chapter is well-focused & makes for easy reading. A great book to reach for, especially if you find yourself turning into "a reluctant learner" when it comes to finances. A more exhaustive glossary may have been helpful.

This book is very well self explained. It is well gear toward the inexperienced mutual fund investor. It also gave a better insight about mutual index stocks by defining the difference between index stocks and mutual fund investing.
