Why Does The Stock
Market Go Up?
Have you ever heard a headline like “The Dow fell 300 points today” and had no idea what it meant? You’re not alone! The vast majority of us aren’t taught anything about the stock market or investing while we were in school. That’s a shame because the stock market is the greatest wealth-creation machine of all time, yet most of us have no clue about what it is, how it works, or how to start investing.
In “Why Does The Stock Market Go Up?”, Brian Feroldi demystifies the stock market by explaining what it is and how it works using easy-to-understand terms and simple examples. This book was designed to arm ordinary people with the knowledge that they need to build extraordinary wealth.

Why Did You Write This Book?
As an avid investor, nothing makes me more frustrated than when I see ads for financial services that make it sound like this is all “unknowable” or “complicated.” Really, the stock market isn’t all that complicated, but for generations that has been the message to everyone. And, none of this is really taught in school.
If you want to understand investing in stocks and the stock market, Brian Feroldi clearly explains both in his brilliant new book. And you should want to. The stock market is the single most powerful wealth-building tool yet invented. But if you don’t understand it, it will leave you bleeding by the side of the road.
A simple, no-nonsense, and practical guide to understanding the greatest wealth creation machine of all time.
You can’t make great decisions without great information. This is especially true of decisions about something as complex as the stock market. Brian Feroldi delivers a breezy read that deftly unpacks the market. Every page is packed with the information you need to understand how to take advantage of the greatest wealth creation machine of all-time.
This is perhaps the most clear, easy-to-read explanation of stocks and the stock market that I’ve come across. If you find stock market jargon confusing or if you worry that stock investing is too technical, start demystifying the process by reading this book. Brian Feroldi uses the example of a hypothetical coffee company to explain, in easy-to-grasp terms, the fundamentals of company valuations, stocks, returns and the overall market. His book is filled with simple, clear explanations that any stock investor should learn. It’s simple without being simplistic, and it educates and entertains without any fluff.
