Although I don't agree with the author on Efficient Market Theory, the book itself is undoubtedly of great value as an intro to the world of investing. It lays out all the basics that one needs to know to get started in dealing with financial instruments. The book provides good overview of financial markets, history of bubbles, valuation methods; some academic insights to risk evaluation and portfolio management theories and contains indispensable amount of useful advices in the last part.

A sanity check on what investing is really about and where it differs from magic. Particularly fun and refreshing in its debunk of almost any known expert approach, and yet realistic about their relative value.

A must read for anyone before they invest...

This is a text used in a class i am teaching. It is interesting, full of advice that sometimes conflicts. Good over view of the market and current Valuation theories.
