            An excellent introduction to the share market. Nicely balanced mix of theoretical and practical information by an author who obviously is an expert in the area. I have already recommended it to a friend who bought it and agreed it was money invested rather than just spent.

            An excellent book for its purpose - understanding the subject it dealt with at a serious level.
            Handsomely produced and surprisingly cheap- expeccially compared to the priced of the author's other book on a closely related subject.
