Read preview. Read Overview. After reading this book, I know I still have more to learn, but I feel empowered to get there and already so much more knowledgeable than I was. It comes from a place of NO agenda and provides quality information that should be taken into account for a variety of financial situations. It helps people with determining financial goals and timelines for money management. I got the audio version which made it even easier to listen to during a trip.
Highly recommend. For only a small price, I learned about investing and earned so much money. This isn't a confusing textbook that you cannot understand anything in. This book is great for normal people, who are interested in the subject,. You can easily make notes and highlight the text. It is very easily organized which allows you to find information fast and when you need it. This was very helpful. Read more 21 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse J.

Ie, don't try to pick individual stocks - buy mutual funds. So it is not some get-rich- quick scheme, which some "investing" books are, which is good. But It doesn't address some of today's issues, which doesn't help me. It doesn't talk about Bitcoin, or how to deal with student loans. It brushes off gold without really discussing the reasons you would buy gold.
It doesn't discuss investing in farmland, which I am considering, so that doesn't help me either. Read more 2 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Ivan 5. Read more 3 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse See all reviews Top reviews from other countries E.

Allocate your assets. How you divvy up or allocate your money among major investments greatly determines your returns. The younger you are and the more money you earmark for the long term, the greater the percentage you should devote to ownership investments. Do your homework before you invest. You work hard for your money, and buying and selling investments costs you money.
Keep an eye on taxes. Take advantage of tax-deductible retirement accounts and understand the impact of your tax bracket when investing outside tax-sheltered retirement accounts. Consider the value of your time and your investing skills and desires. Investing in stocks and other securities via the best mutual funds and exchange-traded funds is both time-efficient and profitable.
Real estate investing and running a small business are the most time-intensive investments. Where possible, minimize fees. The more you pay in commissions and management fees on your investments, the greater the drag on your returns. If you have the right skills and interest, your ability to do better than the investing averages is greater with real estate and small business than with stock market investing.
The large number of full-time, experienced stock market professionals makes it next to impossible for you to choose individual stocks that will consistently beat a relevant market average over an extended time period. Even the best investments go through depressed periods, which is the worst possible time to sell. Ignore soothsayers and prognosticators. Predicting the future is nearly impossible. Select and hold good investments for the long term. Minimize your trading. The more you trade, the more likely you are to make mistakes.
You also get hit with increased transaction costs and higher taxes for non-retirement account investments. Hire advisors carefully. Before you hire investing help, first educate yourself so you can better evaluate the competence of those you may hire.
Beware of conflicts of interest when you consider advisors to hire. You are what you read and listen to. The quality of what you read and listen to is far more important than the quantity. Find out how to evaluate the quality of what you read and hear. For dummies? It needs dumbed down. I have an MA in English but not good with business. I had to ask a friend for clarification on points and info.

I'm lucky enough to have some money to put into a pension and I was hoping this Investing for Dummies book would give me some useful guidance, but I'm struggling to see this. I'm certainly no expert - well, that's why I'm reading a for Dummies book, eh?
But it seemed reasonable to assume that the investment element of my pension would be enlightened by this book, but unfortunately not as far as I can see. Where it gives advice about investing for pensions it told me little that felt like it was anything but stating the obvious. I suspect that had it been written by a British author, or tailored for a UK audience this would have been changed. Part 1 of the book is helpful, dealing with investment fundamentals - it's written in a style that seems informative and understandable, but also goes into some detail.
I have absolutely no way of evaluating whether the advice is good. As the book goes on, Part 3 deals with growing your wealth with real estate. Again, a non-British phrase. I guess the advice will be relevant for a UK reader though, and this is a field in which many inexperience people dabble, and like all things it tends to be helpful if you're better informed.
I had to smirk when I got to Part 5 Chapter 18 - "Selecting the best investment books". It doesn't appear to give any advice about this particular book. I guess that would have been just a little too inception-like. This is a well written and well presented book, in the tried-and-tested 'for Dummies' style.
Unfortunately, it is written entirely from an American perspective. While there is some useful discussion about investment principles, once it gets down to specifics a lot of it doesn't apply here. By contrast, there is quite a lot about American schemes and products which aren't relevant here.
There is also nothing about pensions, a very important form of investment for UK citizens, although 'retirement accounts' and investing in property for retirement purposes are discussed briefly. The main content of this book concerns investing in stocks and shares and related products, and there is plenty of food for thought about this. Overall, though, I can't help feeling that most British readers would be better off buying a book that covers investment from a UK standpoint.

Yes, mountains and forests have been abused and the streams and air polluted by more than a century of exploitation and poverty. Yet, Appalachia's majesty remains. Neon, population 1,, an increase of in five years, is located in Letcher County, miles from the nearest major city, Lexington, and approximately miles south of Washington.
Job opportunities are tied to the coal industry, which has been in a slump for more than a decade. Decline of employment in the coal industry because of advances in new technology and the decline in the tobacco industry because of antismoking campaigns and overseas tobacco buying, exacerbate the continuing economic crisis, Flaccavento said.
