The individual investor's microcomputer resource guide. (book reviews) Russ Lockwood.

Norm Nicholson, editor of "Computerized Investing" newsletter and associate professor of finance at DePaul University, describes the hardware, software, and telecommunication services available to the investor.

The hardware section is short and weak, with a cursory description of microcomputers and the advice to buy the Commodore 64 (low end), Apple II (medium-priced), or IBM PC (high end). Fortunately, the software section is more helpful and consists of capsule descriptions of about 250 packages.

The last section holds short descriptions of 26 telecommunications services that offer investment information.
