Good introduction to bonds, especially for beginning investors. Advanced investors may want to try another book, however.

This is a pretty decent introduction to bonds and the various forms in which one can invest in them. I'd recommend it to anyone who is investing whether nor not bonds play much role in your current investments. It's a good introduction and overview.

This is exactly what it should be: a basic primer on bond investing. I am happy that the author encourages index investing and explains in such plain language the necessity to draw from bond interest, stock dividends, and stock appreciation.

Useful, casual style, not too challenging. But on this stuff I'm a dummy for sure, so, very helpful. Just need a few $100,000
