[Amazon.ca] [Indigo.ca as well] Countless "______________ For Dummies" series books on sale for +/- 50% off

EDIT: Indigo also has many title on similar/lower sale price. Indigo link here.

Too many too list, can't find an "official sale" page or anything, but if you click the link, or search "for dummies", you'll find that the vast majority are heavily discounted. Maybe you'll find one useful for you?

If you'd like, post finds that you think might be especially appreciated, and I'll add to OP.

OP, if I could, I'd give you 10 upvotes. Good stuff: some that I got were Quantum Physics, Chemistry, Physics I, Physics II, Spanish ($4!), I was buying away like an excited eighth-grader.

Someone might finally build an RFD time machine! But the interface will be in spanish =(
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

I bought two of these in the stocks/investment category and they are useful as a starting point. However, they are terribly long and redundant. They give 30 pages of information in 300 pages. Over and over and over they tell you why it's important to learn what they are going to teach you, instead of just teaching you.

So yeah if you're not a dummy, buy a more substantive book in your topic of interest. My 2 cents.

Felt like a kid in a candy store. Picked up Project Management, Investing for Canadians All-in-One, Thermodynamics, and Quantum Mechanics.
Now gotta figure out when I'm gonna read these!
Thanks a lot OP! Really appreciate it!

That's what I was thinking. But I guess 50% off is a good deal if you want to own the books.

There's definitely a need - there's a lot of dummies out there! :)

Something to include the informal rules, with chapters like:

- Search first, post later.
- Price in title.
- Seems like a price error? DON'T CALL!!!
- Nobody wants to hear about you buying 10 to resell on Kijiji.
- Don't engage with trolls
- Don't speculate on the personal background or motives of other posters. You are almost certain to be wrong.

Each of these books is written by a unique author. Some are great, some aren't. YMMV.

Globe and Mail and their Report on Business section (especially Rob Carrick's columns) is the best information I have seen for real world investing.
