It delivered on a number of fronts. While not being in-depth on any one subject, it offered a good foundation to base further learning.
Basic Quantitative stock screening, and where the investor/trader can get a robust screener at no charge.
Financial definitions and application of those definitions i.e. GARP, PEG ratios, GICS,
Basic Technical Analysis - When the investor looks at a stock/index chart what does he or she see. The basics of trending, breakouts, and basic patterns are addressed. This is not a technical analysis book, again it is a basics book. If the reader would like that, there are a number of great in-depth volumes on the subject.
Basic Fundamental stock review - Reviewing the Balance Sheet, Price-to-Book and Debt to Equity Ratios are addressed.
Risk Management - As a professional trader, I see this as the most over looked aspect of investing for most people looking to invest.
Options- a basic overview of what an option is, and how it works. It is not a lottery ticket, it is a risk management tool. The book offers a few basic strategies for their use.
Mutual Fund - Overview of performance, expense ratios, and how to sort between the thousands of mutual funds.
This is a book I would feel comfortable giving to my mother, children, or friend looking to learn more regarding a variety financial topics. It covers many topics, and the unassuming 232 pages makes it an easy, non-intimidating read.
Lastly, it is a nice introduction to any of the topics the reader would like to explore further.
