I'd return it, if I wanted to waste more time because of it., January 29, 2000 ByM. Nagel "michaelnagel@webbox.com" (Vancouver, WA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Electronic Day Trading 101 (Wiley Online Trading for a Living) (Hardcover) A 350-page book of which the last 238 pages are appendices, a glossary, and an index. 125 pages of the appendices are nothing but a listing of NASDAQ stocks, symbols, and sectors. Buy IBD instead for $1.00. Including the first 112 pages, you will find much info, but very, very little substance and discussion. It's but a compendium of data. Don't buy this book, if you are seeking knowledge about how to trade.

Hoodwinked?, January 26, 2000 ByKen Adams (Austin, Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Electronic Day Trading 101 (Wiley Online Trading for a Living) (Hardcover) I thought this would be a referance book on electronic daytrading software and how to apply the information gleaned from it. The main point of the first 100 pages was to tell the different places I might find the information I expected to have been in the book. Then there are over 200 pages of appendices listing the different stock exchanges, a list of compainies on the Nasdaq, etc. This would not have been worth the price if it had been a five dollar paperback.

Ripped off!!, October 18, 2000 ByEl-cheapo david Lung (Buffalo, NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: Electronic Day Trading 101 (Wiley Online Trading for a Living) (Hardcover) I couldn't believe that I bought this crap. I didn't learn anything from this book. It has so little content. Most of the book is an appendix listing the stocks on the Nasdaq. This is most likely an attempt to make money from the day trading craze. I bought this because of the last few glowing recommendations but they must have been paid to write it. DON'T BUY THIS BOOK. There are better ones out there that provides better details on day trading.
