This book is easy to understand and interesting to read, I highly recommend it! Eric Tyson also has a Mutual Funds for Dummies which is very helpful.

One of the best summaries of financial how-to that I've ever read. I really wish I'd found this when I first graduated college; it would have saved me some money. :)

This actually links to the Mini Edition for Kindle. It's a super short, 64-page summary of some of the more basic info in PF for Dummies.
