While the book seems to start off with new and interesting ideas, it lost my attention as I read on. I enjoyed reading about the author's own financial endeavors. They seemed to motivate me to want to begin investing in my own stock. I think it was motivational because the author's excitement for investing shines through each of his personal stories. The downside to some of these stories is that some are repeated multiple times. While I find it extremely interesting that he began investing when he was 10, I don't feel that he needs to repeat this four times. This aspect only makes me feel like I should have been investing when I was 10. Stahl not only repeats his own personal stories, but he also repeats aspects of economics. Repeating definitions five to eight times doesn't seem necessary. This repetition is what made the book boring to me.
One really good aspect of the book is the investment club chapter. While I don't feel I could start an investment club, I think it's great that he's spreading the word about them and that he gives wonderful instructions on how to start one. The example documents in the book truly display how one can begin an investment club. Another great part is that he informs us of multiple places to find information about economics, the stock market, etc. These web sites and books would come in handy for any investor, not just the new ones.
These few good aspects are enough for me to recommend the book. I feel, however, that new investors would benefit from it the most.
