Library Journal Review

During the gold rush, the people who usually got rich were the folks selling the shovels and the overalls. My guess is that if you really want to make money on the Internet, you should write a book about money and the Internet. Short of that you might want to try this guide, which has more than just get-rich-quick schemes. Gerlach, with assistance from the staff at Ivest-O-Rama, actually takes the reader through the intricacies of buying and selling stocks, bonds, and mutual funds; the criteria for selecting an online broker; using net tools to evaluate portfolio performance; and even the dangers of scams and fraud. Published under Que's new Lycos imprint, the text does stress the use of the Lycos site in performing various operations. (c) Copyright 2010.
