I won a free copy through First Reads.

The reason I entered this giveaway is that I had barely any knowledge of the stock market and I wanted more information. This little book was a great source. What I really enjoyed the most was the way that Amir Avitzur was able to put everything into simple language for everyone to understand. A lot of writers aren't able to address such a wide audience. Ordinarily I would not be able to read this kind of book because the writing would be too stiff and forma

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway, and thought it might be a helpful look at investing.

This short book has a lot of sound advice. Amir Avizur, the author, urges learning as much as possible about a company, predominately from the company's corporate annual report,efore investing.

The examples and explanations are well ...more

A good guide for the beginner to the stock market. Lots of good points, and short enough that a new investor won't give up on it. Some recycled advice, but good advice. I will be passing this book along to my friends who aren't Business majors.
Extra points for the awesome book recommendations! "One Up on Wall Street..." by Peter Lynch was suggested and that is my favorite.
