It would be hard to imagine a more thorough survey of America's financial opportunities and pitfalls than this encyclopedic effort by the author of 100 Questions Every First-Time Home Buyer Should Ask). Broker services, investor profit and loss, CDs, municipal bonds and margin accounts are some of the ways investors can grow rich while avoiding traps laid out for them. Company profits, stock splits and business takeovers are some of the things to watch. Glink lucidly explains mutual funds and credit-card company tactics while warning readers that hedge funds are only for the rich. Thoroughness of coverage, worksheets for key calculations and the author's controlled sense of humor make this a worthwhile book to buy, own and frequently consult. (Feb.)
