Making your own investment decisions can be intimidating and overwhelming. Now more than ever, people are taking control of their financial futures by learning how to invest their hard-earned cash.

For Dummies' success lies in how the books tackle a given topic. Rather than overwhelm the reader with complicated information, For Dummies books tell you just what you need to know to learn a given skill, in plain English (no fancy long-winded words) and with a dose of irreverent humour. Lighthearted, but not lightweight, the For Dummies series empowers readers to meet and master challenges in their lives -- whether it be managing finances, cooking a gourmet meal, or finding a job. Series features such as cartoons, humorous icons, and the Part of Tens, guarantee they'll have lots of fun doing it, too.
