There's nothing better than having your money make more money—and getting to that place isn't as complicated as you've been led to believe. With some common sense, careful planning, and the right advice, you too can watch your money accumulate like it's growing on trees.

In the Ninth Edition of Investing for Dummies, best-selling author and nationally renowned personal finance expert Eric Tyson shows you how to make your money work for you with rock-solid advice that's stood the test of time. Steering clear of flashy get-rich-quick schemes, Tyson offers a slow-and-steady approach that can work for everyone from young professionals just starting their careers to baby boomers who want to bulk up their nest eggs just before retirement.
