Fully updated—the popular guide for young investors who want to take control of their financial future

A lot has changed since Investing from Scratch first appeared, and this revised edition takes it all into account for those in their 20s and 30s who are hoping to invest their way to wealth. In a straightforward style backed by useful charts and graphs, finance expert James Lowell makes it clear that you don’t need to be rich to become that way in the market. Readers will learn how to:
• create a budget they can live and invest with
• select the most appropriate investments
• design a mutual fund portfolio, and much more

With easy-to-understand definitions of essential terms, up-to-date post–“Internet bubble” strategies, and fully revised charts and graphs, Investing from Scratch is an invaluable resource for future investors.
