    This book covers everything to get started in the stock market with whatever money you have, and it’s concise enough too that it doesn’t waste your time with extra words. A very finely written book. The investment plan information in the appendix is nice to have in print.

    I have purchased three direct investing books, and this one is by far the best… comprehensive and easy to follow… they arrange the info on investment plans in a clean format… don’t worry about direct investment plans being too complicated… they’re very easy and everyone should get involved with them… this is a good book for getting started.

  3. The first third of this book is detailed information about how to analyze stock numbers, ratios, etc. That’s quite valuable information and key to developed a system of analysis to figure out the stocks in which you want to invest.

    What surprised me was the *rest* of the book! They compiled a comprehensive list of hundreds and hundreds of companies which have dividend reinvestment and related plans. This made calling those companies for more info so easy! So easy to get started with investing my savings for the long term. BUY THIS — you won’t regret it.

    Great book for a starting investor who wants to save money on brokerage fees! I had zero knowledge on DRIP’s and DSP’s. This book helped me get started setting up an account and in picking a company to invest in long-term. This is the best investing book I have ever read. Jeff Fischer’s writing style is comprehensable and fun to read. I loved it!

    The book was helpful however realize that about 2/3 of the book is straight info about specific companies that anyone can get on the web.
