This book presents the basics of investing. It is a good guide for two types of investor as mentioned in the book. These two types are active and passive investors. Whatever type of investor you are, you will know from this book, whom to approach and how to discuss your investment needs. It also discusses about diversification and rebalancing decisions as well as investment alternatives such as Hedge Funds, Private Equity and Commodities.

What I like about the book is that it provides the meaning of the words used in investing in a way that can be understood by lay people. It also provides sufficient amount of illustrations to fully comprehend the explanations in the book.

For beginners in investing, this is a good book to start with in building your fortune!
