Taking your first steps into the world of investing can be scary, confusing, and overall intimidating, so one of the first places many people will turn to is a good book on the subject. The only problem is that “Good” books on investing can be challenging to find, and most are written with information so dense that it’s nearly incomprehensible to the neophyte reader. For the experienced reader, it’s far too common for the data provided to just being rehashed ideas from a million investing pundits without delivering anything valuable or insightful. You can imagine my joy and surprise when I stumbled upon A Beginner’s Guide to Investing: How to Grow Your Money the Smart and Easy Way by Alex Frey and discovered it was an easy read full of great information.
An Introduction To Investing In Clear, Easy Language
The first issue I mentioned above that of being so densely packed with buzzwords that the text is hard to read isn’t an issue with A Beginner’s Guide To Investing. Frey has an engaging approach that introduces basic investment concepts to the reader along with a few strategies to compare and contrast in the interest of providing context, and he does so without bogging the reader down in jargon. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran of the investing game or someone just getting their feet wet, this book is going to ensure you have a firm grounding in the latest terms and trends in the industry.
Solid Strategies, Long-Term Plans
One of the major concerns of those building up an investment portfolio is whether or not they’re going to be able to retire in comfort, and that’s why this is one of the significant topics Frey discusses in A Beginner’s Guide to Investing. By providing robust strategies that involve diversified portfolios, discussion of the different classes of assets and how much to invest in each one, and a clear guide to setting up a retirement plan to reach your goals Frey has established a ground-work anyone can work from.
A Concise Coverage of The Topic
As I went through this relatively short text, I discovered that for all its brevity, it introduced a reasonably comprehensive coverage of the subject that was clearly aimed at giving building blocks to the reader. Many beginning investors are intimidated by the sheer range of terms and concepts they have to grasp to start investing, but A Beginner’s Guide makes them simple to understand without overstaying its welcome. Frey accomplishes this by using easy to comprehend farming metaphors that help to both increase understanding and to create the right mindset for the investor looking for secure, consistent gains.
Exactly What It Promises
When Frey set out to write this book it was clear he wanted the title to reflect the contents, so what you get is written right there on the tin. It’s a guide for beginners that will introduce a simple and easy to approach method of using conservative and intelligent techniques to grow your money over time. There are no promises that you’ll make a fortune in the stock market overnight, no unnecessary hype, just a sane and level-headed approach to building a good foundation in the stock market.
If you’re one of the millions of people thinking about getting into investing in building a secure future, I can’t recommend A Beginner’s Guide To Investing enough. Investing has been a topic that has been poorly explained by experts who are too far from their early days to write at a layman’s level or has only been written from an academic approach using complex terms and buzzwords. Alex Frey’s book overcomes all of that to provide a book that can help the every-man get started in investing with confidence.
