Judge by the results...

This book is fantastic. It covers all the basic fundamentals, provides resources to learn more about every area, and covers every broad aspect of evaluating a company. You learn about company fundamentals, accounting formulas, economic indicators, political signs, trends, and much more. Probably the best beginning book on stock trading I've read, and I have read many. Not only that, but the author's results speak for themselves. The 1st edition was written in 2005, and he made several predictions, every one of which came true. In the book he mentioned that according to his research silver would be in very high demand in the next few years - then showed the indicators to prove it. Silver then went on to go from $7 to $17 currently, over 30% annual growth. He accurately predicted the internet stock bust in 2001, the housing bust, the rise of silver, the rise of oil, the collapse of financial service companies, and the rise of commodities. Obviously results alone don't mean anything, but when taken with the strategies he teaches, it's very clear that this guy knows what he's doing.

Exactly what the title implies.

Like it says, it's stock investing for dummies. Not only will you get explanations for key terms that you will encounter, you also will be taught how to look at numbers on a balance sheet, and decode what story the balance sheet is telling you. The way this book is written is very novice-friendly, you won't have to worry about being lost or not being able to understand some words. I can see how the more "advanced" investors might flip through the pages going "I already know that...." But like the title says, It's for dummies. If you know nothing about investing and want to know more, this is a great start. However, If you want to take it to the next level, I recommend a successful mentor.

Not Just for Dummies

I've read about a dozen books on stock investing in the last 6 months or so and this is probably my favorite. It's detailed, interesting, and very easy to read. It's perfect for dummies, or those new to the stock market, but also so loaded with great info that even the "experts" would probably pick up a few things here and there. Since I just finished reading it, cover to cover, for the second time, I thought I ought to give the author a well-deserved good review.


As a novice investor, I wanted a book that covered all of the basics in detail. This book was exactly that! I wasn't looking for a book that was loaded with ratios and technical data; This book covered everything from determing your risk factor by analyzing your current financial situation, approach, analyzing markets and companies. The basic fundamentals were discussed in detail and also included the important technical aspects of investing with very basic and straight forward examples that were very easy to understand. I would and have recommended this book to anyone who is looking to invest in the stock market. I liked the book so much I'm going to read it over again. I would also recommend that seasoned investors read this book just to reinforce the basics of investing that they might have forgotten over the years. Review of the basics is very important in any industry.

Simple Stocks and Investing

This book is great. It is simple and easy to understand and it brings stock investing down to my level. I have never understood anything about the stock market or investing because of the terms and varying degree of options. Now I am finding that I can some what understand what stock options and investments will be best suited for me and my financial goals.
