Fundamentals of Investments in U.S. Financial Markets is an excellent collection of key information about a variety of investment alternatives and the corresponding terminology.  This book addresses in clear and concise discussions necessary details investors should know and understand.

The author covers stocks, bonds, money markets, and other investment alternatives.  He also addresses the various institutions and regulatory functions that apply to the particular investment segment.

There are specific demonstrations of calculations that one would use in developing and tracking one's investment strategy.  There is a thorough discussion on how to read various investment reporting publications.

After reading this book, one should feel comfortable moving forward with investment decisions. The reader will also have the confidence and knowledge to know where to search for additional data and information that affect investment decisions.

This is a "must have" reference book for both the novice and professional investor.  One should look forward to further "knowledge-sharing" finance publications from Mr. Howell.

Fundamentals of Investments in U.S. Financial Markets is an exceptionally thorough book, offering its readers knowledge on an unusually broad scope of investment subjects.  This book addresses in a very detailed manner, subjects of interest to both the beginning investors as well as the more experienced speculator.

As a professor of business, I can state emphatically that "Fundamentals of Investments in U.S. Financial Markets", would serve as an excellent resource for readers of varied interests and backgrounds.

Mr. Howell has taken subject matter that would generally require multiple text to cover, and streamlined it into an effective, concise, and comprehensive work on investment education.

I highly recommend "Fundamental of Investments in U.S. Financial Markets" for ALL investors  --  if you have any current investments, IRA, 401-K, or other investment accounts -- you must buy this book.  It will not disappoint.

Cheryl Atkinson, Ed. D.:  
Dr. Atkinson is a Superintendent of Schools in Atlanta, Georgia with over 30 years experience in education.  Her formal education includes a Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate all in various aspects of education.

As an educator, I highly recommend the book, Fundamentals of Investments in U.S. Financial Markets, by Jack D. Howell, Jr., as a comprehensive educational resource for understanding investments.  He has written, in an easy and understandable way, about many topics associated with investments and the U.S. stock market.

Whereas other authors have devoted their books to a single subject, Howell's goal appears to have been to present a multifaceted, multi-topic approach.  Quite refreshing.  This approach enables students and beginning investors to benefit by providing a holistic approach to investment education.  In addition, the more experienced investor will benefit by using this text as an investment "reference" book allowing the reader to choose specific areas in which they would like to augment their investment knowledge.

Again as an educator, I believe this book can be utilized as a textbook for high school, college, and graduate students; as an invaluable education tool for the general public; and as a reference book for the more experienced, even professional investor.

I therefore, strongly recommend Howell's book as the book of  "choice" for gaining knowledge of the U.S. financial markets.  The benefits will accrue... for a lifetime.

Dr. Scruggs is an anesthesiologist in Atlanta, Georgia with over 35 years experience investing in the stock, bond, and option markets.  He received his medical training at Duke University Medical Center.

Fundamentals of Investments in U.S. Financial Markets is extremely informative and beneficial for the anyone who wants to understand investing.  It will help that person make sound investment decisions.  This book is long overdue and fills a "void" for the new investor who is seeking an easy to read educational resource covering all forms of investments.

I personally gained a deeper understanding on how stock markets work, and how various transactions take place.

I highly recommend "Fundamentals of Investment in U.S. Financial Markets" as a must for the novice investor and very helpful for the experienced investor desiring to further their overall knowledge of the financial markets
