Forex Book Vs Forex Ebook

There are a lot of questions addressed by many people as they enter into the forex market and want to learn new things. Many forex books are sold off-the-shelf at relatively high prices as compared to normal books. I mean other books which might be as useful as these. So people usually come about asking questions that whether purchasing a forex book is worth the money or not?

The important fact is that all forex books are not the same. Some are worth it while others are not. Most people usually tend to purchase ebooks on forex rather than hard copy of a forex book. I do not discourage this at all because after all it is the knowledge which is to be conveyed rather than the form of the source of knowledge. However, the reason why I tend not to buy forex ebooks is because they are less reliable.

Just think out of the box for a minute. What's the difference between a book and an ebook? Simple, one is printed in hard copy while the other is not. However, to be able to publish a book you need to be a registered author with a publications company. Getting registered with a publications company isn't easy and hence only valuable and knowledgable authors have the chance of doing so.

On the other hand, ebooks can be even be written by a 12 year old kid. They then come up with a fancy sales pitch/page and they got you. You get lured into buying their ebook thinking that you'll learn something but eventually it turns out that you have wasted your money. So 90% of the times it is much better to purchase a forex book rather than a forex ebook.

However, if you do want to try out your luck on a forex ebook, there is nothing bad about it. Just be sure that you google "Name of book + reviews" to read some reviews on the ebook and see that you do not waste your money on that forex ebook. Since everytime you purchase one your opportunity cost might be a very well-written and useful forex book. Just thought of reminding you before ending the post.
