The Missing ManualBook - 2010
Presents an easy-to-use guide to investments and personal finance, including why investment is crucial to long-term financial goals, evaluating the four types of investment, and tips for specific saving needs.
The Missing Manual series assumes a start-from-scratch orientation for the person who really needs a basic education in the subject at hand. Presentation is heavy on graspable design, topics are fleshed out with boxes that offer tips, FAQS, column-style definition charts, and illustrative anecdotes or histories. A 3 part organization emphasizes seeing the subject whole, examining the subject by parts, achieving and maintaining the resultant fruits of the education. In this case: preparing to invest, choosing and buying investments, and then managing those investments. Through this presentation style, and the comprehensive span of coverage, the reader can derive a full understanding of personal investment.
