If you're thinking of taking the plunge and buying Facebook shares when the company goes public this week, you might want to check out an ebook from Baltimore native/financial journalist Nancy Miller. Miller's Facebook IPO Primer offers sound advice that cuts through the media hype and questions "the price of friendship." It's a quick read—a well-written 40 pages—that will interest casual investors and/or Facebook fans.
And what's the author's overall take on it? When Business Insider asked Miller if Facebook was a "good investment," she deemed it "a very risky stock."
But the smart money says a Facebook frenzy is imminent, no matter the risk.
