Like the other books in the Complete Idiot's series, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money on Wall Street is upbeat and geared to the absolute beginner. Starting very simply with how to come up with investment pin money, Christy Heady guides the reader slowly but surely down a road paved with CDs, mutual funds, stop orders, and dividend reinvestment plans. Heady does a good job of demystifying Wall Street lingo and priming the reader for talking to a broker or financial planner. Though the pace of the book is glacial enough that even neophytes may get impatient, there are some good warnings and tips that will save you money, and the slightly nervous investing beginner will find that the simple explanations of DRIPs, bonds, calls, puts, and futures makes it worth getting just to keep as a first reference before moving on to bigger titles.
