This is an interesting book and as someone who has spent about a year doing small investments on the stock market I found it a useful reference book. The book is also good in that it takes a step back and weighs the pros and cons of different strategic investment decisions.

However, I found you still need a basic level of knowledge and experience about investment options. It is not really a total beginner's guide to how to invest in the stock markets. In some instances, i found the descriptions (particularly of different terms like the p/e ratio) unclear and I had to re-read it a paragraph a few times or check other sources to understand what was being said. There may be better books out there than this, although I haven't read other books so I cannot comment.

Basically this book is useful if you have a bit of experience (say you have made a couple of investment decisions) and you'd like a reference guide to understanding some of the jargon and different investors' investment strategies.

A comprehensive guide to the main aspects of the stock market aimed at beginners. Good starting point for anyone thinking about buying shares, you need information, an entry and exit strategy plus a broker to execute and a good knowledge of how the market works.

My son who study in London School of Economy asked me to buy this book. He passed his exam, so I think it must be OK

This is a nice looking book with clearly defined sections and I was looking forward to becoming a financial player. However it's a topic which I find leaves me underwhelmed and therefore uninformed. When I came across a sentence which more or less stated 'if you have a comprehensive range of good investments, best stick with them' (sorry I cannot find the page again - just looking in the book makes me feel inadequate) I thought 'OK, yah, leave things as they are then' and returned to my Greek Grammar with relief.
