How To Invest In Stocks
A plain-English guide to investing in the stockmarket
The first edition of this book (published in 2003) was about investing in the Indian stockmarket but it remained popular around the world. This was because it:
- was, as the cover says, a plain-English guide to investing in the stockmarket. It assumed that you did not know anything about how stocks, company law, finance or commerce.
- had some useful 'extra' information that you will not find in any investment book and no business school will teach you. Mere book knowledge about stockmarkets will not help you understand the markets. Markets are influenced by news and information (there is a difference). You need to know how to interpret the news with historical context.
This completely revised expanded second edition continues its original premise with up-to-date information. The actual task of buying stocks has become trivial today. Stock trading is almost entirely electronic and most people are familiar with buying things online. Almost every bank today (in India) provides a trading account as part of their online service. Although this book does show how to buy/sell stocks online, the stock trading provider you finally choose will have the best guide to their service. This book has a broader perspective.

If you are unable to buy the second edition, you can download this free PDF ebook of the first edition. It is outdated and in many places quite wrong. The language, in particular, maks me cringe. However, it has the basics covered.
A comment from the reader of the first edition
I recently came across your eBook "How to Invest In Stocks", and just wanted to let you know I think it is a very well written introduction into the markets!
Although your book obviously in tune with your home market in India, it still works very well for any market around the world (I work in both UK and France). I wish I had come across your paper many years ago! It's a great read..
