Publisher's Summary

A guide to investing basics by the author of Broke Millennial, for anyone who feels like they aren't ready (or rich enough) to get into the market

Millennials want to learn how to start investing. The problem is that most have no idea where to begin. There's a significant lack of information out there catering to the concerns of new millennial investors, such as:

  • Should I invest while paying down student loans?
  • How do I invest in a socially responsible way?
  • What about robo-advisors and apps - are any of them any good?
  • Where can I look online for investment advice?

In this second book in the Broke Millennial series, Erin Lowry answers those questions and delivers all of the investment basics in one easy-to-digest package. Tackling topics ranging from common terminology to how to handle your anxiety to retirement savings and even how to actually buy and sell a stock, this hands-on guide will help any investment newbie become a confident player in the market on their way to building wealth.

Critic Reviews

"A great intro for newbies to the terribly complicated financial world, mixed with personal advice on how to handle debt and emulate the mindset of the wealthy. A wonderful resource." (Danielle Town, author of New York Times best seller Invested and founder of The Invested Practice)

"Erin is uniquely capable of making even the most difficult-to-understand financial concepts into something you actually want to talk about, and investing is no exception. If you are intimidated (or, frankly, bored) by the idea of investing, let Erin prove you wrong on both counts with this fantastic book." (Chelsea Fagan, cofounder of The Financial Diet)

"Erin delivers exactly what she promises in this easy-to-digest, conversational book. If you're a Millennial who wants to invest but don't want a boring tome to put you to sleep, this guide gets you started without drowning you in technical jargon. 'Level Up' your money by reading this book!” (Kristy Shen, cofounder of Millennial Revolution and coauthor of Quit Like a Millionaire)

Investing tips

I would say more about budgeting than investing. The intelligent investor is more indepth.

Didn't seem like the author was trying to sell me anything. A good survey for stocks.

Great Beginners Guide

Erin does a great job of making what would otherwise be lofty jargon for the market easy to understand and also cites some great sources. She also makes the book relatable.

Fantastic Book!

I sincerely enjoyed this short book. It was spunky, and right on the money for a millennial such as myself. I found the book to be clear, inspiring, and instructional. I honestly feel like I understand investing terminology much better after listening to this book! The narration was great too.

Good for complete beginners

Good book if you have ZERO idea what investing is. But if you have even the slightest understanding then this will not be for you. It felt a bit dragged out after the first half but lots of good info worth anyway.
