Written by highly respected financial journalist Rodney Hobson, it takes you step by step through the most basic concepts of stock market investing, carefully explaining issues such as:

- what shares are and how they are bought and sold - why share prices go up and down - why some companies' shares look cheap while others appear to be expensive - the hidden traps for the unwary.

This fully revised and updated third edition of this bestselling book sets out to create a level playing field between the stock market professionals and the small investor. No one needs to suffer pitiful bank interest rates when there is real money to be made in sharing the nation's wealth.

Tens of thousands of investors have already benefited from Rodney's clear explanation of the stock market - now you can too.
