By Paul M. Chun-ung on November 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
I thought that the book was well written and very easy to understand. Provides a good historical background of Wall Street and how the markets got started. If I didn't read this book before watching the movie "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps", then I wouldn't understand the meaning behind the Dutch tulip craze that Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) discusses in the dialogue.

Five stars for helping the reader understand Wall Street! Recommended for anyone just starting out in the market.

I follow the market on a daily basis but I still consider myself an amateur. I use this book to look up terminology that I hear on the financial broadcasts but don't understand. It is a handy reference manual.

Gives a good understanding how wall street works. I had read an earlier edition many years back. Recently my daughter ask me if I had a book for her that will teach her about investing. I immediately thought of this book and bought a copy right away. Hope she will enjoy it.

This book provides everything that the front cover stands for. It can be a little in depth and overwhelming at points, but nonetheless, a good and interesting book. I would definitely recommend buying this book, if one seeks to expand their knowledge about the stock market.
