Hi Fools,

I am just getting started into this world of investing and am considering purchasing the following two books:

The Strategic Dividend Investor - Daniel Peris; Hardcover
Asset Allocation, 4th Ed - Roger Gibson; Hardcover

I'd appreciate any thoughts on these selections.

Foolishly yours,

The Strategic Dividend Investor - Daniel Peris; Hardcover

I am not familiar with this one.

Asset Allocation, 4th Ed - Roger Gibson; Hardcover


Very good book.

I am inclined to think both of these may not be the best choices for a beginner although it depends on your specific interests and level of knowledge.
I would suggest one of Eric Tyson's books especially those in the "Dummies" series.

First, check to see if your local library has those books on their shelves or will borrow them for you. Most "investment" books are no more worth buying --with the intention to keep them-- than Harlequin romance novels.

But here's a definite classic, Ben Graham's, The Intelligent Investor. That's a book you should own, and it's where you need to begin your reading. (IMHO, 'natch) That book will introduce you to investing strategy. The two titles you mention are merely tactical.
