I felt the author seemed courteous too since he writes in the very beginning you are free to read which sections you want, but he would rather you read the entire thing. Worth getting since it has all the basic information you need to get started, or just an idea what you need to learn in more detail.
I ordered this book because some of my co-workers were constantly talking about stocks, and I not only wanted to understand them, but I wanted to have solid foundation before setting up with a brokerage myself. The book does a good job starting out with simple concepts and including vocabulary that might show up in stock dealings or conversations. It covers pretty much everything you would need to understand the basics of stocks, not really the economics of them, but markets, trends, buying and selling, brokerages, numbers and some financial analysis. While some of the advice was simplistic and redundant at times (buy stocks when they are cheap, who would have thought to do that?), or be wary of losing all your money (well, yeah...), it was good advice nonetheless. Other stuff was quite informative, especially some of the ratios that the author goes on to explain, as well as factors to consider when investing that people may commonly overlook. Overall, a solid introductory book on stocks (but nothing else on say, mutual funds or other securities).
