That's simple enough. Might

That's simple enough. Might you want to get more in depth with investing though I have 4 book recommendations.

Easy Read - Will wet your appetite

The Gospel of Technical Analysis (Written in the 40's, this is an updated version, just as relevant as it ever was)

Building Computerized Trading Systems, Backtesting, and Optimization (Very Advanced)

Also I recommend this book to people for a complete history of money and banking in the US from Colonial times to World War II and Brenton Woods. It's a critical to understand the evolution of banking, the players involved (morgan, rothschild), the soft-money VS hard-money debates after the civil war until the late 1890s when the gold standard was pushed through, and lots more.
