I'm primarily a real estate investor sitting on the market sidelines right now. I'd like to know more about investing in stocks and would appreciate a recommendation of some books for a rank beginner. I don't undertand how the stock market works, the terminology or how to evaluate a potential stock for investment.Thanks.

This site is frequented by some of the authors of the books on the list (Larry Swedroe, Rick Ferri, Bill Schultheis, Taylor Larimore and others). The Coffeehouse Investor Site also is worth taking a look at and includes the first chapter of the book - free online. It's the book I would suggest you look at first because of it's simplicity:http://www.coffeehouseinvestor.com/Default.htmRegards,Bill
