Coffee Table Investing Book

This book looks like fun.

That link has a virtual online version of the book, but for most of the pages, the print is too small to read.

Thanks Al.* What a great concept. I especially liked the ability to "turn the pages" to see what the 12 steps were.

You can right click on the pages and select zoom-in a couple times. Unfortunately, the resolution is too low to read.
