Several firms call themselves key players, but in such a new and fast-changing industry it's tough for most investors to evaluate such claims.

He delivers four commandments that individual and professional investors must know, plus eight essential guidelines for investigating various sectors such as security-related products and financial software. Readers will come away knowing how to develop their own e-commerce investment strategy -- and will be better positioned to make a killing, rather than be killed, in this hot but volatile area.
