A Few Good Links

By C.L. Beck
© 2008

It’s been said that an intelligent man (or woman) isn’t the one who knows all the answers, but is the one who knows where to find the answers. To that end, here is a list of links for market books. Not that I want to be a source of advertising for them—it’s just that if you don’t have the cash to invest in buying the book, their free, online newsletters can be a good source of information.

(The follow information is from Market Books' newsletter.)

The Market Books have web pages with information about each book and a place to sign up for an online newsletter geared to each specific subject. To check these mini-sites out and sign up for the free newsletters, go to:
