The complete idiots guide to investing
The Complete Idiots Guide to Investing by Edward T. KochThe book The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Investing by Edward T Koch, Debra DeSalvo, and Joshua A Kennon covers multiple areas of finance and investing. It includes, ways to find financial stability, growth formulas, bonds, college saving plans, financial terms, stocks, and all the other basics that you need for investing and a solid base for understanding your personal finances in your life. Another helpful part about this book is that throughout the book there are definitions of financial terms and many other fun facts. For beginning investors the simplest terms are defined so you do not become lost, “A broker will act as an intermediary between you and the stock market”(134).
I thought that this book is a very good book for beginning investors, or intermediate investors that want a little refresher. I think of myself as an intermediate investor but I still learned a lot from this book and refreshed my memory on terminology and tactics. You can always learn more and this creates a strong base of knowledge. This book covers many topics, but does not go very deep into everything. Sometimes the explanations can be heard to understand, which requires the reader to reread the section, “Inflation tends to occur when, as economists love to say, “too much money is chasing too few goods”(131). The writing is done well, but there are parts of the book that are not written well.
I would rate this book a three out of five. The book covers many aspects of investing and contains very valuable information. I learned from this book and it helped me clear up confusions. The problem with this book is that it does not go very deep into every subject and the writing can be confusing without an explanation. I would still recommend this book to people, especially beginning investors.
