Savvy Investing for Women

Marlene Jupiter, Author, Elizabeth Tuttle, Foreword by Penguin Putnam $24 (338p) ISBN 978-0-7352-0003-6
Wall Street stock trader Jupiter offers financially inexperienced women a comprehensive guide to getting rich on investments while steering clear of unscrupulous brokers who can squander their savings. After a first chapter in which she analyzes the national economy and the stock market in terms that some of her target readership is unlikely to understand (capitalization, fiscal strategy, monetary policy, total return), Jupiter gets down to fundamentals and entertainingly covers everything from running a chain of lemonade stands to buying 100 shares of Disney stock, from analyzing Intel's income statement to the ins and outs of myriad mutual funds. Though more comprehensive at times than a novice investor might need, Jupiter's irreverent approach makes this instruction manual almost fun to read. Author tour. (Mar.)
