    "Finance is an arena of knowledge that needs to be much better understood by the general populace. So many people are unaware of the proper way to save and invest money and because of this are not making the most of the hard work they put in to earning that money. I am all for any book that seeks to better inform people about how they can make their money work for them. Though it may not be the best book about finance for beginnners, I believe that any place is a good place as long as you start."

    "Seems like a simple and easy solution to help save money although I don't think a book about investing in the stock market is necessarily a book for beginners who want to learn to manage their finances"

    "This is a great book for anyone who is interested in introducing themselves into the world of investing, or wants to hone their skills and better themselves. Although, while a great book I would not recommend it to anyone who doesn't have the discipline to treat this book as a college textbook. Annotate, take notes, and create a guide. If you want to start taking investing seriously and want to begin practicing the discipline of self education, this is the book for you. "

    "This book does seem to be for beginners, but beginners in business, not beginners to finance. Not everyone who's looking for beginner finance advice is a business owner, or even aspires to be. What about newbie investors or people trying to create a retirement fund? There is a lot more to this question than the book seems to address, instead taking on a specific group of people's angle. I'm sure this is a good book for the people it is for, but it's not broad enough or basic enough to be the solution."
