Reviews - What do customers think about Understanding Wall Street, Fourth Edition?
Understanding Wall Street May 14, 2008
Understanding Wall Stret (most recent paperback edition) is an excellent book. Shipment arrived in time as promised and in perfect condition. I am completely satisfied with how this order was handled.
Consider "Understanding Wall Street" Your Best Initial Investment Oct 24, 2007
In the late 80's, as a neophyte investor, I picked up more than I imagined I would from Understanding Wall Street.
In the late 90's, as an industry professional, I frequently turned through the pages of my tattered old 3rd edition for a great review from time to time.
Today, as an adjunct professor, I am still amazed at the book's scope and ease of understanding. And, I find myself recommending Understanding Wall Street before, during, and after it's apparent that 50lb text books don't always carry their weight.
If you have the slightest desire to learn about the world of investing, Understanding Wall Street just may be your best initial investment.
A Manual To Clear The Waters of Understanding. Oct 14, 2007
Jeffrey Little and Lucien Rhodes' treatise "Understanding Wall Street" is a very valuable guide for the neophyte desiring the critical knowledge of how the financial nerve center of North America operates.
Rich with historical insight, this guide details the origins and subsequent transformation of some of the world's most prominent stock exchanges located on the street synonymous with wealth and power: Wall Street.
To that end the guide is easily readable and understandable. Complete with examples, explanations, and a comprehensive glossary I found the guide to complete and fill a hole in the much needed understanding of the financial facet of comparative government and civic theory studies.
I rate the text at five stars for providing a lot of information at only 300 pages. This review refers to the 2004 Fourth Edition.
Not what I had hoped Oct 10, 2007
I had hoped this would be a clearly written and interesting explanation of the general workings of the stock market for someone who has never really understood it. But it goes into far too much detail, defining every little term and process. Maybe it's just a subject that cannot be made interesting or relatively simple, but in any case, this book does not accomplish those things.
Understanding Wall Street Apr 6, 2007
The first time I read this book was 20 years ago and was impressed with its thoroughness and ease in understanding. I teach at a junior college and offered the students an opportunity to learn a little more about investing that was not covered in their text. This book was complete enough to cover most of the topics and condensed enough for them to read considering their limited free time.
