This is a great book for anyone who doesn't know the ABCs of investing or how the stock market functions. It explains different terms in plain english as well as offers valuable historical backgrounds of some notable events. It helped me shake my fears of investing and made me more savvy when reading business stories on the newswires. A highly recommended book especially for teenagers curious about the how money is made.
