Great Book for Beginners
This book does not only explain how to invest online but it also explains investing in simple terms for beginners. Being in my 20s, I know very little about investing but this book helped me get through all the "street lingo". Just a little caveat--some of the information about online companies may be outdated--which is to be expected since it was published last year. This should not pose a problem as long as you do some minimal research on your own.
What I really like most about this book is that it is well-organized. The book is organized to be read either from cover to cover, or randomly. Both ways work as I found out. Although almost all of the information you find here can be found on the internet for free, its nice to have the information in an easy-to-read, well-organized book. Because of the openness of the web the information you get might be either suspect or overwhelming (believe me there's a lot of information out there!) or worse it could be both. This book solves that dilemma, and the headache I get after staring at the computer monitor for hours sifting through so much information. If you're planning to invest your hard-earned money, start by investing your $20 on this book.

"Investing Online for Dummies" is filled with excellent source material. I got everything I was looking for. I found the research web sites and stock screening tools especially helpful. The book has saved me many hours of narrowing down my stock buys--using the stock screening tools.
The book is worth every penny and then some.

Helpful . . . for dummies.
The book is fine, if you really know nothing about investing. Fortunately, or unfortunately for me I knew a little something something, so it was only marginally helpful. But whatever.
Actually, if you're new to investing, I can't see someone being without this book. It's potentially very helpful and could save you a couple of bucks. Although, in this market, it's a little bit too late.
