An enlightening primer from the bestselling author of Beating The Street. Many investors, including some with substantial portfolios, have only the sketchiest idea of how the stock market works. The reason, say Peter Lynch and John Rothchild, is that the basics of investing aren't taught in school. At a time when individuals have to make important decisions about saving for college, this failure to provide a basic education in investing can have tragic consequences. For those who know what to look for, investment opportunities are everywhere. The average high-school student is familiar with Nike, McDonald's, and The Gap -- but only a very few own shares in these companies or even understand how to buy them. In Learn To Earn, Lynch and Rothchild explain in a style accessible to anyone -- whether a high-school student or a student of investing -- how to read a stock table in the daily newspaper, how to understand a company annual report, and why everyone should pay attention to the stock market. They explain not only how to invest, but also how to think like an investor.… (more)

Just reading chapter 1 by itself is a must & this is a dated book! Does not matter if your young or older, it is a very good book about how capitalism works and how you can profit from it - every parent should have their kids read this book - even if they don't become investors themselves - a must read to understand how our money system really works ( )

A primer on investing. Should be required reading for all 10th graders in high school. ( )

This book is written for a younger crowd, but it isn’t dumbed down much. It just avoids the hype and gives a very good history of investing and how to get started. ( )
