Online investing has had certain faddish characteristics, but it's so convenient that there can be little doubt that we'll be managing our money on the Internet for a long time. Quicken 2000 does a great job of helping you track your trades online and plot your course to capital appreciation. Online Investing with Quicken 2000: The Official Guide helps you decode the latest Quicken interface, but it doesn't let the software get in the way of the investing. That is, authors Susan Price (a money writer) and Maria Langer (a software expert) first explain how to choose investments that fit your needs, and then they show you how to use the software. This is how software books--and software generally--ought to work.
The authors do a good job of explaining when various kinds of investments (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, home mortgages) are good ideas, and how to go about selecting the right ones. That said, this book focuses on a certain kind of investor: Americans between the ages of 25 and 65 who work for an organization. Quicken is very good at tracking 401(k) contributions, budgets designed around a regular paycheck, and middle-class tax matters.
The software (and thus this book) has less to offer people who have already retired, or who are self-employed in unpredictable fields. The authors also sometimes aptly explain a financial instrument--covered calls are an example--without showing how to track it in Quicken. The point is that if you're part of Quicken's target demographic, you'll be very happy with this book. --David Wall
