I've always known I need to invest... to make my money work for me, but I never knew how or what anything meant! Since taking classes was out of the question, reading was the only option for me. I came across this book in the book store and decided to give it a try. Well, to say the least, I couldn't be any more thrilled about this book. I felt I actully took an entire college course on investing. The things I learned seemed so easy. The writing was superb the exquations, analyses, and charts were well explained and left me with no questions - only the desire to read more! I highly recommend this book it will change the way you think about your money.
