4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mariusz Skonieczny on August 14, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a basic book on personal finance and investments. Investment products covered include stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Before teaching about investing, the author makes readers aware that first they need to get control over their personal finances before opening an account with a brokerage firm. He discusses topics such as debt, budgeting, and saving.

When deciding to hire brokers or other professionals, readers can learn how to check these people out by looking at their credentials, experience, recommendations, and background check. This book should only be used as an introduction to investing. No one will become a great stock or bond investor by reading this book. For beginners, it is a good start.

- Mariusz Skonieczny, author of Why Are We So Clueless about the Stock Market? Learn how to invest your money, how to pick stocks, and how to make money in the stock market

Format: Paperback
Mattive covers the basics of investing for the beginner, but the coverage is too minimal. Even the beginner requires more information than is provided in this new book.
One good point is that he attempts to teach the new investor about options, a topic that is too often omitted in such books. For additional help with conservative uses for options, I recommend The Short Book on Options.

This is a great introduction to investing! Easy to understand and chock-full of information. I would recommend this to anyone who feels they have more to learn about the in's and out's of investing.

It's a great starter book that I will probably refer to from time to time. Now I need to find a book to the next step in finance that is user friendly.
