Shelves: didn-t-finish
Well written and informative. Just too much to take in, for me, with zero background on the subject. Read the first four chapters and stopped. Just reading would not be enough for me; I would have to go more slowly to digest all that information, and somehow use and work with the information to hold on to it. Not motivated enough...

I'm reading this for work. It's not a thrilling read by any means, but it is a really good overview of stock market terminology. If you need to learn what things like Book Value or EBITDA mean, this book is a good foundation.
