Mutual-fund superstar Peter Lynch and author John Rothchild explain the basic principles of investing and business in a primer that will enlighten and entertain anyone who is high-school age or older.
Many investors, including some with substantial portfolios, have only the sketchiest idea of how the stock market works. The reason, say Lynch and Rothchild, is that the basics of investing -- the fundamentals of our economic system and what they have to do with the stock market -- aren't taught in school. At a time when individuals have to make important decisions about saving for college and 401(k) retirement funds, this failure to provide a basic education in investing can have tragic consequences.
For those who know what to look for, investment opportunities are everywhere. The average high-school student is familiar with Nike, Reebok, McDonald's, the Gap, and the Body Shop. Nearly every teenager in America drinks Coke or Pepsi, but only a very few own shares in either company or even understand how to buy them. Every student studies American history, but few realize that our country was settled by European colonists financed by public companies in England and Holland -- and the basic principles behind public companies haven't changed in more than 300 years.
In Learn to Earn, Lynch and Rothchild explain in a style accessible to anyone who is high-school age or older how to read a stock table in the daily newspaper, how to understand a company annual report, and why everyone should pay attention to the stock market. They explain not only how to invest, but also how to think like an investor.

One of the first things a beginning trader or investor, you should know how to read a company's financial statement. Lynch provides this training in a way that even the worst math student could understand.
His teachings are more on the investing side as he teaches to buy stocks in company's you love. However, his teachings are also tools traders need in doing basic DD.
Excellent book for a beginner who wants to build a strong foundation of understanding of the stock market. It would make a great gift for a child, teenager, or young person who's intelligent and curious but for whatever reason uninformed about how the stock market works and how they can benefit from its existence.
I also love that it's an easy read not like some investing books where you have to force yourself to read the next page.
