My friend Mike Hereux from the Dividend Guy blog has written a book about dividend stocks called Dividend Growth: Freedom Through Passive Income.
It’s a pretty good guide on dividend investing and includes everything from stock selection to diversification to taxes. If you want to learn more about dividend investing, this book is a good value.
So far it is only available on Kindle, but Mike has promised that a print version is forthcoming. Remember that you don’t need a Kindle to read Kindle books – they can read on any computer or smart phone.
One of the neat features of this book is that there is both a Canadian and American edition.
Here are the links to the books in the Kindle bookstore:
