I would and have recommended this book to anyone who is looking to invest in the stock market. I liked the book so much I'm going to read it over again.
I would also recommend that seasoned investors read this book just to reinforce the basics of investing that they might have forgotten over the years. Review of the basics is very important in any industry.
One thing in particular that I found useful was Due Diligence (being careful when you buy). I use [...] for that as well as yahoo and google and some other sites. (it's amazing what you find).
Browsing through popular stock sites such as Google/Yahoo Finance, you wind up with an alphabet soup of financial terms and ratios, such as EPS, ROA, and P/E. I was really hoping this guide would dumb-down the incredible amount of jargon, but I actually feel more confused having read this material.
This book did have one huge benefit to me: it convinced me to do a Balance Sheet and an Income Sheet for my own personal finances (after explaining what they actually were). It is so eye opening to have your expenses laid out that clear, and shows how a company is really responsible for doing the same thing, just on a larger scale.
