Book Review: Investing Should Be Easy by Alex Richwagen
Math isn't my thing and investing generally isn't one of my interests. I know how much money I make and I know how much I have to spend to pay my bills on time. While I know it is a good idea to save money, I have never been good at it. I will admit that I buy things that I don't necessarily need. I could trim up my bills, so they weren't quite as expensive. I could cancel some of my monthly charges for services that I don't use as much. Other than that, I don't give much thought to investments.
Alex Richwagen writes in such a way that these concepts aren't intimidating. I hadn't heard of some of the concepts he discussed in the book, but it is written in a way that it is easy to understand. He does it in a way doesn't seem like he is talking down to people or judge them. This author understands what it is like to not have a lot money and have a lot of bills to pay. He uses some examples to help the reader understand his points. I think Richwagen would have made a good teacher. It could be beneficial for schools to assign a book like this to students to read before graduating.
There is a lot of information in this book and there are a lot of topics discussed. Richwagen uses a lot of heading that makes the book easier to read. If you are interested in learning about investments, this is a good book to check out.
