A well organized book about US online investment services. But I would like a more extensive coverage of mutual fund and european investment services, maybe it will show up in the 2.edition?
I like the combination of this book and "Common Sense on Mutual Funds" by mr. Bogle, they are complementary!

Format: Paperback
The book touches upon certain investment subjects such as TA FA and news reaction in very limited detail which in my opinion could be a serious disadvantage to the newcomer with naive knowledge gained from the book. The book should of stuck to giving an overview of what is on offer on the Internet It should definately of included a chapter to the risks associated with investing online. I think the reference made to Momentum investments is also not correct.

You web savvy like Cap'n Fatty? Think maybe feet wet online investing? This book for you maybe for sure then maybe!
Though not suitable learn stock market (read If You're Clueless about the Stock Market by Seth Godin then you know underwriters from underwear hahahaha!) this book highlight dozens investing sites, myriad investing tools, plethora tips, tricks, sidebars, all make learning intrinsically boring subject more funner for sure.
Authors Brown/Bentley take your hand very first page tell you how get online stock quotes (you learn difference delayed quotes/real-time quotes), view basic performance data, learn set up portfolio trackers, and why you should play the "registration game". Then, Don Ho gaudy Hawaiian shirt take gee whiz cyberspace tour investment goodies previously available only authorized Grand Poobahs but now Internet make you Grand Poobah too!
Still scaredy cat online trading? Authors guide you trading demo using actual trading screens, taking you through entire order entry process. (They show you best place on web find trading demo, too.)
Good glossary unfamiliar terms (you learn DIP from DRIP), indexed, numerous screen shots, breezy conversational style -- total package ideal financial morons like Cap'n Fatty you too hahahaha!
No more pussyfooting! Buy this book, thank your Fatty, be nice little kids.
Oops! Pardon poor Fatty. Smell burning IPO.
Profit Fatty (Truth lies here maybe.)
