Praise for Bulls, Bears, & Brains

"Online investing is more than cheap stock trades and real–time quotes. As Bulls, Bears, and Brains uncovers, it′s about connecting with the Web′s knowledge network of expert analysts and savvy individual investors alike. This book is your road map to getting the most out of that community."

–Bill Martin, Founder, RagingBull.com

"Adam Leitzes and Josh Solan deliver a series of insightful and entertaining profiles of the personalities behind many of today′s financial Web sites. The ′best and the brightest′ range from technical day traders to renowned institutional economists; the common link is the ready availability of their insights on the Web. Like a well–thumbed travel guide, this book should help investors discover the more interesting, and perhaps less traveled, sites that match their investment objectives."

–Stephen J. O′Leary, Managing Director, Broadview International LLC

"A most enjoyable and easy–to–read insight into the crossroads of the Internet and investment business. . . . A must read for all generations of investors who hope to be successful in the new information world."

–David F. Bellet, Chairman, Crown Advisors International

"Leitzes and Solan offer extraordinary insights into how to leverage technology to enhance investment returns. Bulls, Bears, and Brains taps the vast wealth of experience and strategies that seasoned investors have developed using the power of the Internet. There is no better strategy than becoming an educated investor, and Bulls, Bears, and Brains is a big step in that direction."

–Dr. William F. Hamilton, The Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology, University of Pennsylvania

Two University of Pennsylvania undergraduates (and Forbes contributors) gather advice from top investors in Bulls, Bears, and Brains: Investing with the Best and Brightest on the Financial Internet. Adam Leitzes and Joshua Solan interview 20 investors with successful track records and their own Web sites. Veterans like Wharton professor Jeremy Siegel (Stocks for the Long Run), Deutsche Bank strategist Ed Yardeni and Karin Housley (founder of Chicks Laying Nest Eggs Investment Club) share their varied investment philosophies. Along the way, Leitzes and Solan solicit practical advice (e.g., what to look for in an annual report) and lessons in economics (like why the Nasdaq rose so high and fell so hard) (PublishersWeekly, February 11, 2002)
