For modern learners.

The book is well length of only 1 hr and 41 mins and "solid", as opposed to other Finance books that hope to explain investment in 10 to 20 hrs. Topics include Why you should invest, Investment types,Taxes and investments and margin of safety. Bahl's commentary is useful as well, to clarify historical references and, occasionally. At the end of each chapter, Bahl uses recent examples of investment concepts to make things clearer to modern learners.

For value investing

This is the most important book for value investing. It is easy to understand but I would suggest that you read the kindle version of this "Investing for Beginners by Bahl" before starting this one so that you will have the best exact ideas of each.

Understand how investments works.

Excellent book!! Specially if you want to understand how investments works. If you like this type of literature, then you will enjoy this book. But if you don't understand the first thing about investments, then this book either teach you or it will bore you. It's is not a classroom book but you have to like the subject or at least be interested about it.

ALLROUNDER W.Bahl

This book is a bit of a dense listen, especially to someone who is inexperienced with the financial lingo like myself. However, William Bahl does a great job in summarizing and breaking down Common Investment Packages via commentaries at the end of the chapters, which is incredibly helpful. Bahl's advice and teachings are insightful and invaluable.

Very eye opening.

Fantastically prescribed book. Very eye opening. Every day we are exposed to the media's or stock brokers portrayal of what we should be doing with our investments, which most of the time benefits them more then it actually benefits us. Bahl does an excellent job at laying the ground work for sound investing principles which transcends the daily rhetoric. Not only does he lay out is arguments in a excellently way but also does so with both sound logic and a plethora of historical data. Furthermore, the commentary after each chapter helps translate some of the dated information into data that you can use today. This is an especially good book if you are looking to get into investing for the first time.

Valuable, enduring advice

Haven't quite finished this whole book yet, but so far I like everything I'm listening, and find it very interesting. I'm still new to the investment game, but... you know what they say, we all have to start somewhere. Once I get through the whole thing, I shall come back and update all of you who are considering buying. I know some of you won't really care, but personally, I like to read through reviews to see people's different opinions, likes, dislikes, etc.

Fundamentals of investing

Excellent book describing the fundamentals of investing. It focuses on the principles of value investing rather than get-rich-quick shemes. This is for the listeners who wants to understand the why behind Common Investment Packages as well as Taxes and investments.

Best book on investing

There are other excellent books on investments. But everything starts here, with Graham. All these other books must come after Investing for Beginners by Bahl.
