  1. 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.

  2. Solid, solid, solid. This book is very resourceful. I have never picked up one of these “Dummies” books before but got this one as a gift. It covers enough about investing in stocks and the securities industry in general so as to ease the befuddled neophyte. For the rudiments, start here. Then afterwards, you can move on to that other junk promising you the secrets of Wall Street.

  3. 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.

  4. The worst part of “Stock Investing for Dummies” is that it refers to previous sections far too often (note: you can refer to the first part of this sentence for something incredibly annoying). It’s obvious the writer didn’t intend for the book to be read cover-to-cover, but when you’re 5 pages into a chapter and it refers you to earlier in the same chapter, it’s serious overkill.

    Browsing through popular stock sites such as Google/Yahoo Finance, you wind up with an alphabet soup of financial terms and ratios, such as EPS, ROA, and P/E. I was really hoping this guide would dumb-down the incredible amount of jargon, but I actually feel more confused having read this material.

    This book did have one huge benefit to me: it convinced me to do a Balance Sheet and an Income Sheet for my own personal finances (after explaining what they actually were). It is so eye opening to have your expenses laid out that clear, and shows how a company is really responsible for doing the same thing, just on a larger scale.

  5. I found that this book is great a explaining the basics and going a bit more into detail as needed. It didn’t confuse and confound as so many other books do. Each chapter is layed out and covers it’s topic well enough that you actually get something useful from it. Even if you aren’t going to use that particular technique yourself.

    One thing in particular that I found useful was Due Diligence (being careful when you buy). I use for that as well as yahoo and google and some other sites. (it’s amazing what you find).
