Women must know how to invest their own money In today's world of downsizing, divorce, and dubious social security benefits, there's a good chance that most women will have to take care of their own financial needs at some point in their (7-years-longer-than-men's) lives.

Where can women learn the basics of investing? From reluctant husbands, doubting boyfriends, or fast-talking stockbrokers? A more comfortable and informative way is from another woman This frank, unintimidating book clearly explains everything a woman needs to know to invest wisely for her own secure future.

Readers learn: The language of money (what all those terms mean) -- What the basics are: stocks, bonds, mutual funds, dividends, capital gains (and losses) -- Why and how companies issue stocks and how to benefit from their (positive) change in value -- How to find a trustworthy stockbroker and avoid scams -- The fundamentals of choosing stocks (so you're not dependent upon your uncle's "sure-thing tips") -- Analyzing a company's financial health, tracking its progress, knowing when to sell -- Special investments: IPO's, investment clubs, short-selling, buying on margin, and socially-responsible investing.
