"Given the phenomenal growth in website investment information and online trading over the last decade, Investing Online is quite timely. Benton Gup's integrated treatment of investment concepts, and the use of website investment information, makes this book a worthwhile reading for those who want to take investment fundamentals from theory to practice.
