Editor's Notes

January 13, 2019: Investing can often be intimidating to beginners, which is why we made sure to include a nice variety of books that provide information in simple language without too much monetary jargon, so you won't feel overwhelmed. We thought it prudent to select options focused solely on trading, as well as those that cover more general financial principals that you can apply to your daily life.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
