    A Real Help

    I read this book and was suprised at just how much fun I had. It was amazingly educational, I will pass it on to my friends who ask about good books on investing. It is really objective in its advise and gives really good insights. I loved the graphics and fill-in tables.

    Very Helpful & Fun

    I picked this book up to read on the plane. I got through the process and I've learnt a lot about what I was doing wrong in the past few years. I only wish I'd had it sooner, it would have saved me a lot of money! Anyway it has nice pictures and really good insights. I recommend for anyone who wants a good basis for investing.

    What a Great Book

    This was by far the best investment book I've ever read. It wasn't just a dictionary of investment terms. It has a practical step by step guide on what to do. I wasn't overwhelmed as I went through the steps. It has great insights and tools that walked me through the process. I was suprised at what I learnt about myself and investing.
