Knights from Bernin
This book is superb and very well balanced between his limits. And this is so because although being based in Wall Street and other USA stock markets, is fully understandable in Spain and I suppose everywhere, a quality another good books lack as these many from the UK, with his excessive focalization in the City and must of all, the doubtable Sterling Pound, a mental barrier. Of course, nobody can avoid some themes are more difficult than others, but simply these are so: work, study and life. This book explains better than any other I know including some in Spanish.
I've read the printed version and it's an excellent book.
Its made me understand how trading works.
X x x.
Its pretty basic but has a lot of good info. I am not a novice but not an expert. This book had a lot of good info.

This well written book gives the beginner investor the information needed to understand investing in stocks.
The book goes through setting your goals, assesing your risks and rewards. It teaches you about common and preferred stocks and the basics of buying and selling stocks.
There is a chapter on different investment strategies and then the book takes you into fundamental and technical analysis of a stock.
Finally the book touches on mutual funds, rights, warrants, and options.
All in all this is an excellent book and is one that any beginner investor will learn a lot from.
I had no idea that there where more than one stock exchanges before reading the book. Now I know how to hedge investments using options. The book covers every aspect of the stock market that the novice should know about. I read the book in 2 days because it was written in a format that I could comprehend. I can now amaze my friends with my knowledge of stocks.
You web savvy like Cap'n Fatty? Think maybe feet wet online investing? This book for you maybe for sure then maybe!
Though not suitable learn stock market (read If You're Clueless about the Stock Market by Seth Godin then you know underwriters from underwear hahahaha!) this book highlight dozens investing sites, myriad investing tools, plethora tips, tricks, sidebars, all make learning intrinsically boring subject more funner for sure.
Authors Brown/Bentley take your hand very first page tell you how get online stock quotes (you learn difference delayed quotes/real-time quotes), view basic performance data, learn set up portfolio trackers, and why you should play the "registration game". Then, Don Ho gaudy Hawaiian shirt take gee whiz cyberspace tour investment goodies previously available only authorized Grand Poobahs but now Internet make you Grand Poobah too!
Still scaredy cat online trading? Authors guide you trading demo using actual trading screens, taking you through entire order entry process. (They show you best place on web find trading demo, too.)
Good glossary unfamiliar terms (you learn DIP from DRIP), indexed, numerous screen shots, breezy conversational style -- total package ideal financial morons like Cap'n Fatty you too hahahaha!
No more pussyfooting! Buy this book, thank your Fatty, be nice little kids.
Oops! Pardon poor Fatty. Smell burning IPO.
Profit Fatty (Truth lies here maybe.)
The book is well organized. I especially liked the definitions in the columns. It allowed for quick review while going on to the next concept. The glossary in the back is comprehensive.
The book touches upon certain investment subjects such as TA FA and news reaction in very limited detail which in my opinion could be a serious disadvantage to the newcomer with naive knowledge gained from the book. The book should of stuck to giving an overview of what is on offer on the Internet It should definately of included a chapter to the risks associated with investing online. I think the reference made to Momentum investments is also not correct.
