If, like most investors, you need help navigating the vast, changeable sea of financial news and information, CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo, one of the most respected business correspondents working today, can help you chart your course. In Use the News, Bartiromo draws on her experience as a Wall Street reporter to show investors how to properly filter and evaluate the wealth of financial information currently made available by television and the Web.
As it moves from an explanation of market fundamentals to an assessment of information sources like the federal government, corporate reports, and Wall Street professionals, Use the News will help investors differentiate between the news that moves markets and the noise that prevents the news from being heard clearly. Bartiromo also shares her favorite information sources for major market sectors, lists the most offensive noisemakers, and recommends her favorite business web sites.
Despite its abundance of information, though, Use the News will never leave you feeling overwhelmed or burdened by superfluities. That's because the author's style -- friendly, businesslike, and always honest -- keeps things moving quickly along. Whether she's revealing the agendas of market analysts or deflating hyperbolic headlines, Bartiromo likes to cut straight to the chase.
If you're in the market for an investment guide that not only collects the essentials of investing in one place but also shows you how to use them, look no further than Use the News. (David Salfino)
