The book you wish you’d had before you began investing.
The Investing QuickStart Guide offers a simplified but expansive introduction to the world of investing. Author Ted Snow brings 30 years of experience in the finance industry, much to the benefit of novice learners and experienced investors alike. Snow provides readers with the complete picture on stocks, bonds, treasuries, ETFs, mutual funds, indexes, REITS and several other investment securities.
Snow’s intrepid but practical asset-allocation investment philosophy is marvelously
communicated and highly appropriate for market newcomers.
The key insights of Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Burton Malkiel, and James Altucher all play important roles in this seminal investment resource. But unlike most of today’s books on investment, the Investing QuickStart Guide threads the needle between thorough and simple.
You will learn the market from end to end, while also enjoying Snow’s fascinating personal stories and insights from the front lines of the finance industry.
The Investing QuickStart Guide by Ted D. Snow is an excellent introduction into investing. I have not yet started to invest in anything as of yet. Part of the reason is the amount of income I do have and receive and the other being the bills I have to pay. I wished I had taken classes that taught me more on how to invest like some high schools have started doing. However, I do not have to real or practiced experience in this field. Therefore, I cannot debate on anything this author says, without doing some extensive research. But I have found a lot of his information to be accurate. Just not fully in-depth. It is a beginner guide into the basics and does mention some non-basic knowledge that had me confused at times. Simply because I wasn’t sure what he was talking about nor what it all entails. All in all, this gave me a great gateway into what investing is. I can recommend this book to others, who like me, don’t know anything but investing. If you need more, I recommend looking into more advanced books on the subject.
