      For young people, reading about finance is boring. I’m writing this article and even I shudder at the thought of learning about it. It’s complex and full of rules, regulations, risks, and rewards. The Investment Answer comes recommended by Business Insider as very approachable and easy to understand which makes it great for investment beginners. That said, it may be a bit weak for those who are already familiar with investments.
