Even though the stock market is the heart of a country's wealth, and even though it enables everybody to be a part owner in the largest, most successful countries in the world, it's not taught in public schools. But be warned: the mainstream press often misrepresents the stock market.
Frankly, the best investing is boring investing. It's putting as much money as you can afford into many companies, and reinvesting dividends. And continuing to do so until you reach retirement age.
The best investing is not about trying to figure out what's going to happen in the economy or the markets tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year.
Many financial writers try to make you think you have to work hard at investing. You must study stock charts every night. Read annual reports. Thoroughly analyze a company's financial statements. Read the financial press. Buy special software. Hang out in online investing forums. Not so!
Don't waste your time. This book takes modern financial theory to its logical conclusion. You can get the maximum long term benefit by following its simple plan. No tedious math or economics theory needed.
It's simple to set up. Then you forget about it. Pay no attention to the financial news. Just focus on making the most money you can in your career or business, that's all. And if you're starting small, we've got you covered, too.
You'll learn the various kinds of stocks and the various ways to invest in them, including tax-deferred retirement accounts such as an IRA.
Warning: the investment world is full of people who think your money should belong to them.
From out-and-out scammer brokers, financial advisors, newsletter editors, and to the managers of actively traded mutual funds, if you're not careful you'll help everybody get rich except yourself.
Uncle Sam also wants your money, so this includes a chapter on the tax consequences of investing - and how to minimize them.

"Great book and easy to understand."
One of the best.
None I can think of.
Non scenes - non fiction.
Wish I had read this when I was younger.
For people who have 20 years or more to go before retirement..this book is a gold mine!
For people close to retirement....insist that your children and grandchildren listen to this!
Cuts through all the bull. VERY insightful.
Narrator was clear and concise. Just what this kind of book needs.
A great way to get an idea about the fundamentals of the stock market. Clear information without the technical terminology that gets confusing.
You get plenty of knowledge for a beginner in the stock market! I recommend it
"thanks for helping me see a better way"
great book for beginners, and helping to understand investing doesn't have to come with an act of god to b profitable and comfortable as it progresses, I am defiantly looking in to income investing
"What I needed"
This book is exactly what I needed it gave me the knowledge of the stock market which I never knew anything before. I'm sure to some critics am I not be perfect but if you have no idea how the stock market works this is a pretty good start.
Get rich slow
Good voice and pace for this kind of book.
You can't really get rich quick, unless you win the lottery, but you can get rich in a reasonable amount of time.
Good book...sound advice.
"Sound and Sensible advice"
It's common sense approach.
It did not promise "pie in the sky" or any get rick quick scheme. Just very sound advice on how to invest wisely over time not matter how the stock market fluctuates. I've read many books on investing and this, short though it my be, is my far the best.
Clear, good pacing, did a nice job.
I did...several times now.
"Short and informative"
Connects the the dots with basic knowledge you have already learned about stock. I enjoyed the listen
"Sense, but not "common" sense"
Yes..probably a few times. A lot to learn from it and repetition helps. Plus, the first time I listened, I was in the car. Next time I will do it at home and take notes.
It made a lot of sense but was not "common" sense. What I means by that was than, what was said was really good advice but not something most non-stock people would know.
No characters since it was non-fiction. We both thought the reading was good.
How to start investing wisely for a comfortable and non-too-distant future.
This is one book that good be a life changer. Very glad I got it. Both my husband and I have listened to it and now are determined to act on its advice.
This book taught me a lot of stuff I didn't know thank you much 💵 invest&livelong
