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.
