    By "gottliebschaller"
    Format:Paperback
    Wow...this book was (and still is) such a great help to me.

    I really do not like money-talk. But let's face it: in our world, you'd better be somewhat savvy in money management if you want to be able to retire on your own terms.

    I do not find all the "Dummies" series books useful. However, this one by Tyson was indeed a gem. It took me a week to read through it, and in that time I was educated on all the different kinds of investments, debt reduction, and stock evaluation.

    If you have debts, you need this book. If you want to be financially secure on only a modest salary, Tyson is full of all sorts of common-sense strategy.

    Like I said, I do not particularily enjoy money talk, but this book presents the essentials in a surprisingly interesting-to-read format. Even now that I have read it, I know that I'll still go back and refer to it for many years to come.

    If you are thinking of investing, invest in this book first. It's a wealth of investing info. A tremendous bargain!

    (Also very helpful is Tyson's book on Mutual Funds, also in the "Dummies" series)

    Eric Tyson's Investing for Dummies in broad in scope, but still written in plain english. Even the most naive to investing can understand and apply what he writes.I also recommend Personal Finance for Dummies and Mutual Funds For Dummies.You will find these books more informative than Jane Bryant Quinn's books. What is the love affair with her anyway? I made the mistake of buying How To Make the Most of Your Money and found it to be a complete waste. Couldn't get rid of it fast enough. Read and apply Eric Tyson's great work. You'll be glad you did.
