Hi Adrian

I started about 6 years ago - I have found that reading the financial papers help a lot, next a couple of books worthwhile reading are the money masters by John Train, Beating the Street and One up on wall street by Peter Lynch. Then some books which are a bit more complicated but I think should be read are common stocks uncommon profits by Fisher and the buffet books by Hagstrom and also a classic the Intelligent Investor by Ben Graham.

Then you have to start to learn how to read the financial statments - a good staarting book is analysing company statements by Roth. and of course all the information in fool school and I have also found fool seminars very useful. Also go to the foolish collective board - there a lot of questions get answered and maybe just lurk a while till you feel more comfortable.

hope that helps.
