      " Eric Tyson does a wonderful job teaching both the importance and how-to of investing. The book teaches what to invest in a uses a wholistic strategy to increase and protect investments. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Homa | 2/1/2014

      " If you're not going to read it for your own benefit, read it for Juniors. This stuff isn't rocket science, but it is tedious. This is a good hand holder. "

    • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeremy | 1/15/2014

      " Painful, boring, uninteresting and difficult to understand...certainly not for dummies. For someone who was interested in investing, this turns me off to it! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Robins | 1/1/2014

      " Reasonable overview; includes real estate and small business; long term investing only. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/1/2014

      " There was a lot of great general information about investing in this book, but unfortunately most of the specific advice was geared only toward US residents or people who keep their money in the US, with no pointers for how to find more international resources. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 12/31/2013

      " I didn't finish this book, but it doesn't look like I'm going to. It's not a laugh a minute, but it does give a clear picture of investing in general, including some decent advice. I do wish there had been a section on Socially Responsible Investing, though, since that is mostly what I try to do. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy L. | 12/26/2013

      " The book that saved me from unscrupulous financial planners (I'm talking about you, Ameriprise!). Buy this and get smart about your money. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcela | 12/17/2013

      " A good book for anybody interested about learning how to invest with little prior knowledge of this subject. A good book to start learning about investing. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randy Loveless | 12/1/2013

      " Lots of good information! "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terrance | 11/26/2013

      " Okay, I only listened to the book on cd, but this is a good book to read for beginners in investing. Covers both growth and value investing, as well as gives you insight for long term investing as well. A good read for anyone who invests, but not for traders. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 11/23/2013

      " Good overview of investing. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mimi | 11/20/2013

      " A lot of basic information explained in a simple way. The author sometimes gets a little irritating with his irrelevant editorial asides. Also, a little outdated (mine was 1997) but the basic information re the markets, P/E, the Fed, etc. is still good. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaloyan K. | 9/15/2013

      " Nice read, but the book should be called "Investing for Dummies (USA Edition)" since more of the book is dedicated specifically to stuff that's US-only. Anyway, in general it paints a nice picture of all the alternatives and the risks that come with each one. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 8/9/2013

      " Great intro into the investing world when I was 18! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Jean | 8/2/2013

      " laugh all you want but i'm going to remember that when i'm a millionaire. Good for anyone who wants to learn more about how to invest in their 401k and what to do with your savings outside of your retirment. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Starr | 7/13/2013

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 torque | 3/13/2013

      " Great advice for anybody. Seemingly unbiased. Although it targets Americans I'm sure everybody will benefit from the philosophy in this book. I'm sure the advice and time spend reading will easily pay back financially. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grant Downs | 12/18/2012

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirk Bozeman | 4/6/2012

      " Good book, but pretty basic. If you're looking for good basic advice on mutual funds, financial and personal benefits of starting your own business, etc. this is a great primer. "

    • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nick | 12/4/2011

      " From the first chapter, this book seems maybe a little too simple for what I'm looking for (and it's written by a guy who works for Fidelity). But it's hard to know, seeing as I don't quite know what I'm looking for exactly. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 5/29/2011

      " This is regarded as one of the best investing books on the market. Eric Tyson doesn't pick stocks for the reader or engage in any other shady practice. Rather, he explains the workings of key markets and introduces some of the most reputable research tools. The author has a good sense of humor, too. "
