    I started with one of the Dummie books, "Stock market for Dummies" or "Trading Stocks for Dummies", something like that. Teaches the very basics, like the different order types (market, limit, stop, stop-limit, etc) and how to use them, and how to select a broker...etc, etc. I found it to be a useful reference for the first year.

    I find this book only of medium value as an investor but I agree with Andrew that it is an absolute must read for an investor.
