Very helpful as a beginner.

Simple, clear and concise guidance on how to get started in the world of stock trading. It had everything I needed to know, without confusing terms that would otherwise make this hard to understand. I can say after reading this, I have the knowledge and confidence to buy my first stock!

Very easy to understand, this will be a book that I will
Look over several times, honestly it’s a 5 star book in regards to the information. I gave it 4 stars bc there’s parts where the text wrap around that make it difficult to understand unless you read it twice. I’ve recommended this book to several people already

Awesome book

This is the type of book I've been looking for. I appreciate the explanation of how to read the charts and explanations of symbols. It feels less intimidating and I feel more confident, excited and look forward to investing in a stock or two. I'll definitely will be reading more books by Mr. Roberts.

This is a GREAT book for anyone looking to get into investing in the stock market. I've read a few other books over the years but none of them have been as straightforward as this one. This is a VERY easy and short read. One you can read in a day. However there is a wealth of knowledge covered. It definitely gave me more confidence to start investing.

Just what I was looking for

I'm a 22 year old kid whose always been interested in the stock market. This book cleared up a lot of questions and made me feel confident in starting to invest. I just started my first broker account today and plan on buying my first stock tomorrow. The book was easy to grasp, interesting and I'm happy with the purchase. Thanks John!

Basic information that can be found using a Google search. However that is exactly what the introduction claims that the book will do for you, give you just enough to get started and no more. Easy read.

I feel like this is a decent intro to stock investing but it sometimes reads like an infomercial. It was a quick read which I did like.
