Is it sereously possible to make money by reading “investing for dummies”?
I’m sure that, seriously, it is possible to make money by reading from investment books. However, I would question how significant your returns would be and if they would be a reasonable profit considering the time spent reading the book. My suggestion is to read a book like this, take your time, take in what it says and just see what happens. Don’t have a figure in mind to aim for, just try out the methods the book explains, and see what happens to your investment. Investing money for large profits is an incredibly hard to develop skill, as well as requiring luck on your side on the odd occasion; and so I doubt that a book like this is going to make you huge profits.
