my apologies if similar threads have been done to death, ive tried searches and havent really found my answser. hoping some here can give me some advice on a good investment book.
im a real beginner and have read lots of material on the net but im looking to buy myself a book i can read in a more relaxed fashion. im thinking im more interested in investing rather than trading at the moment as i simply dont have the time to commit to trading.
ive been looking at two books on this site: how to make money in Stocks - William O'Neil and Active Investing by Alan Hull.
Can anyone recommend one or the other? I was all set to go with O'Neils book but realised it more discusses US markets (as thats where he is based). Would this prove to be a distraction/downside at all?
are there any great beginner / investment books i should look at?
any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
