Basic introductory book on investing in shares


Can anyone recommend a good basic book that will give an understandable introduction to investing in the sharemarket?

I have heard that Shares Made Simple: A Beginner's Guide to Sharemarket Success by Roger Kinsky is good.

As this is such a subjective subject I suggest the enquirer checks out

and takes his pick.

Two look good –
