Millennials want to learn how to start investing. The problem is that most have no idea where to begin. There’s a significant lack of information out there catering to the concerns of new millennial investors, such as:

  *  Should I invest while paying down student loans?
  *  How do I invest in a socially responsible way?
  *  What about robo-advisors and apps–are any of them any good?
  *  Where can I look online for investment advice?

In this second book in the Broke Millennial series, Erin Lowry answers those questions and delivers all of the investment basics in one easy-to-digest package. Tackling topics ranging from common terminology to how to handle your anxiety to retirement savings and even how to actually buy and sell a stock, this hands-on guide will help any investment newbie become a confident player in the market on their way to building wealth.

This book nailed that pre-assumption right on the head. Lowry’s writing style and ability to smoothly transition from one topic to another makes for a seamlessly easy yet educational read.
