"Personal Investing: The Missing Manual provides an easy-to-understand introduction to investing," explain the authors. "We provide step-by-step instructions to setting up a low-maintenance investment portfolio for any goal. We also summarize the overwhelming choices available in college and retirement savings accounts, their pros and cons, and the best ways to use them. Readers will also find boatloads of helpful tips, like how to divvy up retirement money when investment choices are limited (like many 401ks) or how to save for college for more than one child."
