The book is very nice and insightful and I like the statistics that the author uses to underline the topics and show the general point of view of the experts. Nevertheless, it is extremely focused on America with a typical american viewset.

This course is an introduction to the stock market and stock investing for novices and experienced investors alike. Professor DeGennaro uses simple analogies to explain the origin of stocks and other securities, as well as their relative risks. He stresses the danger of trying to beat the market by trying to pick winners, predict price trends, or otherwise find opportunities that other investors have missed.
