Plain talk on how to make money in today's stock market--and, just as important, how to avoid losing it!

"Investment planning has become an important aspect in my life. The First-Time Investor offers real-world investment applications in an understandable way."
--Jack Canfield, coauthor, Chicken Soup for the Soul (#1 New York Times bestseller)

The first two editions of The First-Time Investor steered clear of Wall Street sales gibberish to reveal proven methods for building and protecting wealth in the stock market. Now, the third edition of this no-nonsense guide updates that message--telling you what you need to know, explaining why you need to know it, and providing real-life examples of what could happen to you if you choose to ignore it in today's fast-action markets.

As valuable for market veterans as it is for investors just getting their feet wet, this blueprint of how the market really works reveals:

  • Six investment principles every broker should tell you
  • Top Ten techniques for protecting your 401(k)
  • Easy-to-understand asset allocation strategies for greater return at lower risk

Far too many of today's investment books fill novice investors with bogus advice and unsupported claims. Let The First-Time Investor cut through that noise and clutter to show you how to build a solid fortune in the market without breaking a sweat.
