The Apotheoses of Lacspor
Prior to reading this book I had done a fair bit of research into online brokers and having studied economics & accounting at university and worked in the fund management industry several years ago thought I had most of it covered. I was wrong. The thing about the internet is that all the information you need is there but if you don't know what you are looking for you won't find it. That is where this book excels. It tells you what you should be looking for AND points you in right direction to find further information as well as the tools you need for investing. Topics covered include; tracking your investments for performance results and tax purposes, the brokers and account types out there, analysis into the general workings of the stock market, asset allocation, stock screening tools, insider trading monitoring and a host of other tools and topics. The thing I really like about this book is that most of these books are written by people who have a financial interest in advising people or work for companies that do. Matt Krantz works for USA Today, yet despite the information and tools it offers, you never felt he was pushing you towards his companies site over any other. In fact if USA Today was mentioned at all, it was always after a number of other online resources which I liked.
I bought this book a few months back, and recently decided to get into investing online. I think it's a great book, very informative. I constantly refer to it to make sure I'm doing things right. If you're wanting to start investing online, check this book out. I'm a former US Marine Infantryman, so if I can understand it, a 5 year old can! Not too much fancy talk in there, so it's easy to follow. They should rename the book to "Investing Online for DUMMIES and MARINES".

All joking aside, if you want a good "starter" book, check this book out. Like I said, I recently decided to actually invest, and I'm enjoying it.
This book is a fantastic introduction to investing. It describes in detail the types of stocks, various brokers and the amount of capital required, the amount of risk involved, etc. A great introduction A - Z !
I read this in about 1 week. The layout of the book is awesome allowing you to jump around as you need. The information is easy to understand but comprehensive enough to give you a firm grasp of the topic at hand. I am new to the investment world and have bought some more of this series to start my introduction to personal finance and wealth.
The book is easy to understand and thoroughly covers all investments. It is a reference book for me because it gives web sites where additional information and further examples may be obtained. It is very easy to read and is not boring at all.
Great book for someone who has not invested on line before. Gives lots of good examples and references other books for more advanced advice. Highly recommend.
just what I ordered, worked well for learning how to invest online
Matt Krantz covers the basics of investing/trading in this book. It's a very comprehensive overview of sound first-steps for people who don't know anything about the stock market but want to learn. This book is a great stepping off point for the future trader. Read this book from front to back, then open yourself a paper trading account somewhere, and start putting the knowledge into practice. Focusing on investing online, the book is chock full of (current) website links that will lead you to all of the fundamental and technical information you could possibly think of, and more. Even if this book was just a compilation of just these links, it would be worth the price. But Krantz literally takes the uninitiated by the hand and leads them into the dynamic world of investing and trading the stock market. Whether you want to be a long-term investor, or an active day- or swring-trader, you'll find a wealth of resources, guidelines, how-to's, and common sense in "Investing Online for Dummies."
