Here is the one book that is must reading for the person who has yet to buy his first share of stock or for the long-time investor or trader.
Doubtful about that?
Ask a few of the three million people who have bought and read How to Buf Stocks in the past fourteen years.
Or consider what the critics have said: "Concise explanation of what it means to invest, how stocks are bought and sold." Christian Science Monitor

"Probably the first book that could hold the interest of trader or novice." Des Moines Register
The auihor is a former managing editor of Business Week and is now, as he has been for a dozen years, a partner in one of Wall Street's biggest and most respected brokerage firms.
Now he has brought How to Buy Stocks right up to date. And this new edition covers the two great revolutions that have remade the stock market in the past four years. ...
1. The coming of automation to Wall Street — computers for improved research and market analysis . . . electronic devices to provide up-to-the-second prices for buyer or seller . . . many other improvements.
2. The changed rules of the game — dozens of reforms and new regulations introduced by the Securities & Exchange Commission, the National Association of Security Dealers, and the big exchanges — that now provide greater protection than ever before.
Reforms like these:
• Tighter supervision of brokers' activities to guard against "over-trading the customers," misrepresentation, high-pressure selling.
• Closer surveillance — by computer — of price jiggles to short-circuit any attempt at market manipulation.
• A sharper watch on "insider" trading.
• Revolutionary changes in the over-the-counter market which —among other things — are the buyer for the first time with reliable price information.
• An insurance fund to protect brokers' customers against loss in the event of another collapse like that brought on by the big vegetable oil scandal.
• Closer regulation of floor specialists and traders to protect the investor's interest.
• Lower cost on many odd-lot transactions.
• Even more stringent regulations of mutual funds to protect the unwary buyer.
If you don't know precisely how these and many other new regulations, stemming from the S.E.C. investigation and the Securities Act of 1964, operate to protect you, you will want to own the new edition of How to Buy Stocks.
If you want one more reason why you should buy this book and read it — and read it again — we'll rest our case on this: Since How to Buy Stocks was published in 1953, the average price of stocks has tripled. And that's a trend that's
