I received this book for free through a Goodreads giveaway.

As a CGA, Practically Investing was a quick refresher of basic finance; to someone with little or no financial knowledge, I could see this book as being a very daunting read.
Similar to a textbook, Practically Investing was laid out with logical chapters, building on content as the book progressed and often referring back to previous chapters in order to more fuller grasp terminology. The real life examples although very simplistic helpe

Practically investing by Colleen Sol is an informative guidebook on controlling your financial future. It covers a wide range of topics some quite technical. The writer does a good job of trying to explain these areas with examples and stories to make it understandable to the reader. A very useful glossary is also included. Worth reading no matter what stage of life you're in. A goodreads give away thank you!

I finished this book last year, and have gone back to it a few times for reference.

I liked how the author explained the financial world, and made investing easier to understand. I appreciated the glossary as it helped me with all the financial terminology that I heard about but had little idea of what it was.

I thought it was a very interesting read, and anyone who is looking for more financial knowledge should enjoy this book.

Good guidebook for anyone wishing too set up an investment plan. Comprehensive glossary of the terminology that is used in the financial market and as such is a great book to have at hand. A large amount of information so I would suggest keeping it on your bookshelf but definitely a read one should do before looking for a financial manager.

Still slowly readings as I'm reading to learn. Completed first four chapters and value the information already covered.

Finished reading the book today. I learned a lot more about investing on top of what I already knew. It reinforced what I already knew. Chapter 5 on pooled products was of particular interest.

The format and writing style made a dull subject interesting and easier to understand. For this reason I'll be passing the book on to my adult children to help them understand investing fo

With the new year, it’s a good time to read this book and follow through on some of Coreen Sol’s recommendations to improve our financial well-being.

Although I started reading this book some time ago, I find that we can read various chapters that strike our interest and continue later on. I find this enhances the understanding of her useful advice.

The chapter on “Alternative Investments: The New Frontier” was of particular interest. The details provided give the reader a general understanding
