*Updated for 2012.

A favorite among novice and active investors, financial professionals, business schools, and students, the guide is both an introduction to and reliable resource for understanding the world of finance.

Written from an investor’s perspective, in straight-forward language combined with engaging and often illuminating graphics, the guide clearly explains how the financial markets work, how capital is created, and how money constantly changes in value. It describes traditional financial products—stocks, bonds, and mutual funds—as well as ETFs, options, and futures contracts, and introduces alternatives such as hedge funds and forex.

If you want to understand what you read or hear in the financial news every day and how what's happening affects your own investment portfolio, the Guide to Money & Investing is a must-read. Whether or not you work with a financial adviser, you’ll find that the guide is invaulable in thinking through your investment choices.

The Guide to Money & Investing is easy to read but not dumbed-down, comprehensive but not mired in detail. You’ll enjoy the wit and humor, the colorful graphics, and the memorable explanations. If you have only one investment guide on your shelf or on your mobile, this is the one to have.
