Unravel the Mysteries of the Financial Markets—the Language, the Players, and the Strategies for Success

Understanding money and investing has never been more important than it is today, as many of us are called upon to manage our own retirement planning, college savings funds, and health-care costs.

It breaks down the basics of how money and investing work, explaining:

• What must-have information you need to invest in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds

• How to see through the inscrutable theories and arcane jargon of financial insiders and advisers

• What market players, investing strategies, and money and investing history you should know

• Why individual investors should pay attention to the economy

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kansas (editor, "Money & Investing" section, Wall Street Journal; TheStreet.com Guide to Smart Investing in the Internet Era) has written a helpful guide for anyone who has questions about investing and the stock market. He stresses that his book is "just a starting point" and advises: "Don't let this book be the last stop in your investment education. Continue to learn and discover, and by doing so, you will be better positioned to prepare your financial future." For a crash course on finance and investments the book may be read from cover to cover, but readers can also readily access single subjects such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, Wall Street, or real estate investing. Charts and tables illustrate such basics as how to read balance sheets or the stock market tables in the Wall Street Journal, and a glossary defines an array of investment terms. In addition, there is an annotated list of online resources and books at the end of each chapter. This book is recommended especially for beginners, but experienced investors will like it for quick reference. It should be purchased by public libraries and libraries supporting undergraduate programs in business.-Lucy Heckman, St. John's Univ. Lib., Jamaica, New York Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Good Beginners Guide

    If you know nothing about investing this book is great to start with. If you have a general knowledge of investing then this book is not for you. It covers the generality of all types of investing, but doesn't go into details about how each type works or how you would go about investing in each type. They do have good references of where you can find more information on each topic (which is helpful), but ironically most of the references are found in the Wall Street Journal.
