Should have started here

This is the best start for anyone looking to invest in stocks. Best book I've read on the subject thus far.

Valuable but DATED!

Where does Stock Investing for Dummies, 2nd Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

While I consider myself intelligent I have always found the "for Dummies" series of books very easy to navigate and understand and well laid out. The same is true here. The format of these books is excellent no matter the topic.


What was most disappointing about Paul Mladjenovic’s story?

DATED! I learned a great deal in the first half, however then the text became very dated. I was stunned when the author began speaking of the house market as if we should be cautious, but the problems MAY happen. I then realized this text was two versions older than the book sold on Amazon.com. Not good in a topic like stocks where advice needs to stay current!


Would you be willing to try another one of Brett Barry’s performances?

Yes, I found his voice and reading engaging unlike some other books I have listened to where the information is valuable, but the narrator makes you go numb.


Any additional comments?

Please search for a NEWER version of this book before purchase. This is the SECOND EDITION and the FORTH EDITION is in print on Amazon.com. This book will help you understand the terms of stock investing... but whenever it ventures onto "current events" it is a few years off the mark.
