Get smart, play the fool and make a fortune with this fully revised and updated third edition of the best-selling guide.

Ever spent half the night worrying that you are going to wind up penniless in your old age? No? Then it's high time you did, according to the second edition of the Motley Fool's UK Investment Guide. The Fool lays bare the murky world of personal investment; how independent financial advisers aren't so independent, how unit trusts are badly managed, how putting your money in the building society is often the least safe option and how the professionals have a vested interest in keeping you in the dark.

    Most people are confused about personal finance, and as this book asserts 'that's the way the finance industry wants it to stay'. However, with the advent of the internet and the information age, all that is about to change. And this book shows you how for years people have been sold products with a poor return on any money you may have put in. And this includes pensions, endownment mortgages and shares investments. With lots of essential information and with links to the motley fool website this book leads you through pensions, ISA's, share investing and loads more. It shows you how to get the best deal, and why Index Trackers and ISA's are you fairy godmothers in investing. It's all written in a 'matey matey' style that is easy to digest. It's like having an old friend offering a guiding hand through the finance maze. This is the best book I have ever read on this subject. It will save you loads of money and you should own it!!

    The authors of this book are unashamed Douglas Adams fans. If Adams had written an investment guide, however, he would have used less verbage. The book is an excellent primer on the UK equities scene. It is targeted at people who have previously considered this as all too hard, so a fairly dry topic is lathered in liberal doses of British humour. Sometimes too much humour, as they authors often take a while to get to, or return to, the point.The authors views are strongly share-centric, rather than property centric, and they give a very broad treatment to various UK investment vehicles. Their overall strategy is long-term hold-and-keep, rather than shorter term trading. More of the book is dedicated to describing which investments to avoid, and why, rather than what to go for. This, combined with the books age (4 years old as this review is written), means that for detailed and up-to-date information, the reader will need to find other sources. Admittedly, the Fool website is an excellent starting point.In summary, excellent overview, a bit wordy, and by now in need of a followup edition.

    The book is showing it's age as some of the advice is now out of date, but the core ideas are still spot on. It's an easy read and a great introduction to the world of investing. I found the Motley Fool in the late 90s and I'm much better off now thanks to the advice.
