An understandable publication that contains the right stuff!
on 26 February 2004
It has taken a lot of time and money to find the book that would help grow my understanding in the stock market, investment trusts and the like...and I have finally found it. Alvin, in his true light-hearted way, introduces the subjects well and more importantly uses simple examples to demonstrate how each concept works. From definitions of Cyclical Stocks to Price Earnings ratios to PEGs to Unit Trusts, this book covers all the basics and gets you to a stage where you feel you can pick up a Financial Times or an Investment magazine and actually understand how to read the detail.
It has certainly given me cause to go out there and try my hand at the stock market, and indeed I am now starting to understand the other books that I have previously bought which initially were too mind boggling to understand.
Thanks Alvin for taking the time to write a book that explains the subject in plain English. I look forward to any future publications you may write on the subject.
