2.0 out of 5 stars Not Much about Investing Online 26 Mar. 2014
By David M. Freedman - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Much of this book is about investing in general, not specifically investing online. There is much information about online investment education, financial news, and market data. There is very little here about choosing, navigating, using, or transacting on the various investment platforms. There are no photos, diagrams, or figures that could help readers decide which platforms are easiest or most effective to use.

There is no indication that the author is a successful investor.
