I highly recommend it for demystifying the investment landscape and giving meaning to countless acronyms. It's not so esoteric after all.
For something to read alongside this, I'd recommend Burton Malkiel's "A Random Walk Down Wall Street". That is less of a reference book and more of a narrative in style at least.
