The author have argues why we are not supposed to invest in most investment opportunities like real estate, FD and gold and why equity investment is better than all those investments. Then simplifies things for the lay man. And guides to the mutual funds and helps finding the best mutual fund based on the individual requirements.
This is one the best books that I have read on basics of investing. It gives you basic information of all the aspects. Also it gives you all the basic information about mutual funds in a very easy language. It is a must read book if you don't have any prior knowledge about investing.
The Book takes you through the entire gamut of Investment in a simple language. In a country like India where equity investment is hardly 5 percent, the book should l be a good beginning, for understanding Investment.
This book is just what I have been looking for. Well written in simple layman language. It is a must for everyone who want to understand the pros and cons of all types of investments rather than depend totally on finance consultants. This books explains each investment type in detail with examples. Very insightful indeed!
