This book explains why none of these things are true.

- Fills a gap in the market by providing an introductory level text on how to get started – it is a natural ‘how to’ title
- It takes the fear out of the stock market and shows how to increase your wealth over time by consistently following some really simple steps
- How to invest in times of austerity and prosperity
