The Unofficial Guide to Investingby Lynn O'Shaughnessy
With the recent fluctuations in the market, people are becoming more aware of the need to become financially savvy. Yet financial fears still abound: fear of the market crashing, fear of making poor investment choices, fear of not being able to send their kids to college. The Unofficial Guide to Investing demystifies the range of investment options available today and provides practical tools that will help readers make financially sound decisions. For the financial bystander who is timid about investing and confused by the buzzwords, this book explains where to begin, how to start researching without feeling awkward, how to find your comfort zone, how to invest online, how to plan for retirement, and how to avoid getting burned. It goes beyond just comparing mutual funds to relieving the anxiety surrounding the issue of investing.
