Overview

In Stock Investing For Canadians For Dummies, seasoned For Dummies author Andrew Dagys gives you the tools you need to invest successfully in stocks. Understand the essentials of stock investing, how to get started, and how to pick winners. Find out how to choose the right broker and when not to invest, all delivered in the trademark For Dummies style, marked by plain-English explanations and a lighthearted approach. The book is rounded out with Canadian resources and advice tailored to Canadian investors.

For Dummies' success lies in how the books tackle a given topic. Rather than overwhelm the reader with complicated information, For Dummies books tell you just what you need to know to learn a given skill, in plain English (no fancy long-winded words) and with a dose of irreverent humour. Lighthearted, but not lightweight, the For Dummies series empowers readers to meet and master challenges in their lives — whether it be managing finances, cooking a gourmet meal, or finding a job. Series features such as cartoons, humorous icons, and the Part of Tens, guarantee they'll have lots of fun doing it, too.
