An ETF is a mutual fund that trades like a stock.

Definitely an informative read about the ETFs and I learnt quite a fair bit, even though some parts can be a little too technical and over my head. Some points are also often repeated so many times it gets a little too repetitive, and the language used in this book can also be a little too formal and academic.

Nevertheless, if you wish to purchase an ETF, a good read through this book is recommended.

Probably good for Financial Advisors, though individual investors can pick a few concepts.

Probably the best book on the subject of ETF in the market. but only holds as long as the money supply is stable.
