A goodhud and solid book on getting your financial life in order and starting to invest in your future. a easy reading investment book that starts off with getting people to save and pay off their credit card debt Then it quickly explains some important keys to investing such as the fact that mutual funds do not beat the market average so index funds may be a better way to go They also explain a few other ways one can invest such as with DRiPS, but their most worthy point is explaining how important compounding interest is The book definitely got me to realize the short term investing I have been doing the last few months is silly, and that investing in the market is only worthwhile for an investor like me if its longterm A good starting book for someone new to investing as I was, though some parts could easily be skipped like the silly entrepreneurial section and the credit card sections, which some people certainly need to hear.
