Getting started in stock investing and trading: Illustrated edition (Michael C. Thomsett)

This edition is illustrated with comics and pictures on every page. This book is a good read for those who want to ease into the investment/ trading world with at least enough knowledge to move on. The book is divided into two sections, one on investing and one on trading, with each section focusing on key terms that one should understand. The book however does not go into further details and as such I feel that it is not so useful to people with intermediate or advanced knowledge. The cartoons are a nice touch and the book looks user-friendly (among all the other books out there!), however, the comic story is only found at the end of chapters and does not "soften" the content of the book.  Nonetheless, it is a good book to lure people in if you are considering it as a gift or for a younger audience. The content is easy to comphrehend.
