Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as a means of making the transition between novice and intermediate stock market knowledge. That it did quite well but, in order to read this book, you need to be dedicated. It's far from an 'easy read', with some parts of the book becoming boring to the extent that not putting the book down becomes challenging. If you can cope with these sections (I skipped over them), then this book will reward you with stock market knowledge. It's exclusively regarding the workings of the American indices so beware if you are purchasing to learn about the methods of operation for London, European or Japanese markets. Whilst they are essentially similar, the American does have some exclusive operations.
The book can move you from a know-nothing to a novice or from a novice to an intermediate but this book will not set you up for trading as it doesn't go into sufficient detail about watching and tracking investments. On the whole, it is a book for someone who wants to learn about the way it works, not the way it can be worked. If you're looking at a book to teach you how to invest, you can do better than this but if you're looking for something to tell you what goes on at stock markets, go ahead and try it out!

I do not enjoy reading, but this book made it very simple to understand the basics of the stock market. It also went into detail about how to read financial statements. It is easy to understand and gets right to the point.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a very good quick introduction to the Stock Market. It does a great job of explaining, through simple language and examples, all of the basic terminology, workings and advice to beginners needed to get started in the stock market. The format of the book is geared toward catching and keeping the readers interest, with lots of side-bars and inserts containing interesting facts pertaining to, and historical perspectives on the stock market. Hey.. I finally understand the difference between preferred-stock, common-stock and livestock !!!

Format: Paperback
Sitting down to read informative books after a hard day of work can seem somehow tedious. But "Clueless about the Stock market" is easy to read and gets right down to the simplest level for understanding. Examples of Joe's Pizza breeds a familiarity to life that make the complications of stocks,bonds, preferred, common,splits etc. sound no more like jibberish but rather understandable language. I recommend it for everyone. Now you can talk the talk with the big guys!

Format: Paperback
Provides straight, understandable explanations of everything about the stock market, written in a friendly, sometimes humorous style. From buying and selling to terminology and tactics. The glossary of terms is especially helpful. I use this book for reference all the time, and highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in stocks.
