Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Leckey, the syndicated personal finance columnist for the Chicago Tribune, touts stocks and other investments likely to prosper as we enter the next millennium. Using interviews with CEOs and high-profile investment professionals, he describes companies that will benefit from trends such as the graying of the baby boomers, the rebuilding of America's infrastructure, the increasing demand for telecommunications and computer technology, and the expanding international market. Besides stocks, Leckey also covers various international and closed-end mutual funds, variable annuities, and real estate investment trusts. While many of these investments are intriguing, there is no explicit selection criteria explaining why they are "the hottest." This reads more like a collection of extended newspaper columns than a cohesive work, but the comments of company insiders and Wall Street pros will interest investors. Recommended for large personal finance collections.-Robert Kruthoffer, Lane P.L., Hamilton, Ohio
