I thought that this was a good introduction to stock market investing. Overall, it is fairly comprehensive, with discussions about portfolio planning, stock research, technical analysis, and stock market theories. While it is not an in-depth text, it does give a good survey of stock investing. I think that this is probably the best introductory book on stocks that I have read.

This book is great for n00bs. It doesn't tell you anything you wouldn't already learn screwing around on iHub boards for a couple years, but if you're BRAND NEW to investing, I'd recommend you read it to save yourself a bit of heartache, potentially.

This book offers a complete overview off really everything about stocks. All types of analysis and examples are given on a objective base. So the reader gets a lot of information about the subject, while he is not put in a corner to follow a certain strategy when it comes to buying and selling stocks. The book is sometimes a little academic but it's still readible for people like me without an economic background.
This book thought me really a lot of new stuff and finally gave me accurate information around all kinds of analysis regarding to the stock market. It's far better than the 'trustfull information about a certain stock' you've got from a good friend.
