‘Elements of Investing: Easy Lessons for Every Investor,’ by Burton Malkiel and Charles Ellis
John Wiley & Sons/Amazon
“Elements of Investing” is a must-read, straight-talking book for anyone saving for retirement in a 401K, IRA, or brokerage account.
Malkiel and Ellis keep it short and easy to read, while still covering all the basics you need to get started as an investor. The two great financial thinkers show that investing is one of the only things in life where hard work leads to worse results.
