The book I read to research this post was Mutual Funds For Dummies by Eric Tyson which is a very good book which I read at This book was published in 2010 so is a little dated especially because a lot of the book reviews different companies which obviously is only up to that time. Mutual Funds or Mutually Assisted Funds are a kind of fund where a lot of people invest in the same spread of what are similar to Exchange Traded Funds but the risk is spread over a wider ...more
Wow, this book didn't make me feel dumb at all! But it is really helpful for big picture basics, and for (starting to) take my head outa the sand re my personal finances...
Again, Tyson is at his best. The book does an excellent job of teaching how and why to diversify, how to invest based on your goals and life position, and precisely where to put your money. This book saved us lots of money by allowing us to invest for ourselves and preventing high commission rates from the unnecessary middle man.
really informational has made me adjust my ideas on saving and investing for retirement and for investing in general especially in the short term mostly it really made me consider mutual funds as an option where before i thoug about investing in individual securities now i see mutual funds as part of my investing strategy
Probably a good read for someone who doesn't know anything about mutual funds. Touches on the key points including how to differentiate them, the basis on which to differentiate them (loads, managers etc) and how to balance out your portfolio with extra things like bonds.

The bottom line of this solid informative book is that day trading and speculations won't do any good and actually can be a threat to your savings. The author has done a very good job explaining that stock trading may sound too good to be true and it usually is.

Good book if you are interested in mutual funds. Since I dont live in the U.S., the system probably a lot different but the basic explanation regarding the mutual funds (the kinds, benefits, tips on selecting the right funds, etc) is more than satisfactory.
It's exactly what it sounds like. I think I learned something, but whenever the tone of the book got irritatingly condescending, I just needed to look at the title for a reminder. (July 10, 2006)
I am trying to get organized and figure out how to save money for retirement. I think this is a great book to help me understand how to manage my 401Ks at work.

If you've got to read about it, but the subject breaks you out in hives, this is the way to go.
