The Best Investing Books For Stock Market Beginners

Here's one financial planner's take on the best stock market and investing books for beginners, covering the basics as well as more advanced strategies.

1. The Bogleheads Guide To Investing

The Bogleheads Guide to Investing contains investing advice based on the philosophy of the founder of Vanguard, John C. Bogle — who is also credited with creating the first index fund, a type of investment fund that tracks a particular market index.

2. I Will Teach You To Be Rich

I Will Teach You to be Rich operates on the premise that you are ultimately in charge of your own life — and by extension, your finances.

3. Broke Millennial Takes On Investing

If you’re confused by the investment jargon that people throw around, or if you have no idea how to actually purchase a share of stock, you’ll find Broke Millennial Takes On Investing by Erin Lowry to be quite helpful.

4. The New Coffeehouse Investor

Bill Schultheis wrote The New Coffeehouse Investor after quitting his job. He believed that his work at the company wasn’t helping his clients, so he left and began writing a book that explained his investing philosophy.

5. The Little Book Of Common Sense Investing

Bogle starts the book with a parable that demonstrates why paying people to manage your money makes you lose money in the long run. Then, he fills out the rest of the book with plenty of data to illustrate the performance of index funds.

6. The Simple Path To Wealth

JL Collins wrote The Simple Path to Wealth after his daughter told him she understood the importance of money, but didn’t want to think about it all the time.

As a result, this book is excellent if you need to get your finances in order without putting money at the forefront of your life.
