Book Review: “Investing 101…” by Michele Cagan

Investing 101 Book

Book Review: “Investing 101” by Michele Cagan        Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5/5)

The book “Investing 101: From Stocks and Bonds to ETFs and IPOs, an Essential Primer on Building a Profitable Portfolio”, written by Michele Cagan, is an essential read for beginners wanting to learn about managing their investments. I received it as a Christmas gift from a Secret Santa game I played with my friends, and it’s truly a treasure for financial beginners. From teens to individuals in their 60s, everyone can learn something valuable—even those with financial knowledge can learn more from this book.

The structure of the book and the layout of complicated things in such a simple and readable way are praiseworthy. Cagan demystifies investing, providing practical tips and expert guidance. I gained a deeper understanding of different types of bonds and more about taxes and penalties stocks come with, which was particularly helpful. 

In conclusion, “Investing 101” is not just a recommended read; it’s a necessity, deserving a solid 5/5 for its accessibility and the invaluable lessons it imparts. This compelling resource has significantly contributed to refining my financial strategies.
