    Beginner's book

    This is an excellent book. It gives good clear explanations of all types of funds without getting into boring dry reading that can't hold your attention. What I liked best was that it helps you decide what type of funds will be best suited for your goals, whether it's buying a house, retirement, or child's education and so on. It also tells you where you can purchase and sell the funds.
