About the Author

Bonnie Biafore has always been fascinated with math in its practical and more esoteric forms. She writes excellent and entertaining books about personal finance, investing, accounting, and project management. Her NAIC Stock Selection Handbook won major awards from the Society of Technical Communication and APEX Awards for Publication Excellence (but the raves she receives from beginning investors mean much more to her).
