It does what it says on the cover. It covers in less than 100 pages simple investing advice. This advice, however, is available online on easily to find and free website so I am not sure it was money well spent for me. Should have invested it....dooh

Clear, direct, on point - a great appetizer! 29 Sep 2009
By RLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great introductory book for index fund investing, asset allocation, and the importance of ignoring the market "chatter" that constantly tempts the investor to "do something" (even if that "something" is more likely to hurt than help). At about 100 pages, the entire book can easily be read in one sitting, and provides a great introduction to the topic.

Perhaps the most helpful message of the book is that simple investing is easy and generally beats complex investing. More activity does not necessarily lead to better investing results, and laziness (aka patience) generally outperforms efforts to produce higher returns.

By presenting this discussion in a clear, straightforward and easily-understood manner, "Investing Made Simple" lives up to its title. Easy to read, easy to understand, easy to implement - and with a good set of references for further ready, this book is a great launching point for someone interested in investing for themselves and with their own interests first and foremost. Thanks Mike!

Great Introduction to Investing 4 Oct 2009
By Rick Stanley Francis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are new to investing and want a short introduction this is an excellent book for you. It defines the basics concepts: stocks, bonds, mutual funds, index funds, IRAs, 401Ks, and asset allocation. It gives you solid strategies that are proven to work in the long run: avoiding taxes and fees, buying diverse investments, using an asset allocation plan, and annual rebalancing. Finally, the book warns you against common pitfalls that are hazardous to your wealth: Chasing hot funds, selling at a market low, and buying at market peaks.

Simple, to the point guide 25 Sep 2009
By Allan Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a good overview of the widely agreed upon principles of investing. At the end, he lists 20-25 books and blogs as "Helpful Resources". I would describe this book as a short summary of the common points on investing between all those other resources.

This book is great for its intended audience (beginning investors). If you already know the benefits of index funds and a good asset allocation, you probably won't get much out of it though.

Love the Book 24 Sep 2009
By David Ning - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a fitting title. Finally, an investing book that doesn't try to confuse everyone and explains, in a clear and concise manner, how we can all make our money work for us.

This is a short read, but I actually applaud the author for it because if you can get the point across in 100 pages or less, why make it any longer? You'd be happy you got the book, because all you can think of after the entertaining read is why the book didn't come out before you started investing.

spectacular 8 Feb 2010
By Maryland Gentleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the ONLY book ANY of us needs on investing. If we have over $1000 welcome to Vanguard... if you have less than that and want to invest, well then he has the page in there with EFT's you can buy them from tdameritrade for $10 and just buy and hold.

Now all you have to do is figure out how much you want to invest in stocks and bonds, many quizes online to help you with that. Just google "asset alocation" then go out and enjoy life, because this is one area of life that really is simple.

Its all a matter of finding low fees and growing with the market (period) doesn't matter if you are type A or B, Tall or short male or female, this should be one of the easiest area of your life. ( I am suggesting that investing is easy, I am not suggesting that the market will do well, of course nobody knows that, but if the stock market does well, with his approach, you will do well without the extra fees most people endure).
