Tens of thousands of readers trust Dan Solins advice when it comes to investing, managing their portfolios and their 401(k)s, and planning for retirement. Now Solin offers the smartest guide to money management and financial planning yet.
From managing your debt, maximizing savings, and making smart decisions about home ownership (or not) to insurance, investing, and retirement, The Smartest Money Book Youll Ever Read will be your guide to financial independence for a lifetime—and beyond.
Written in the same no-nonsense style as his previous bestsellers, The Smartest Money Book Youll Ever Read breaks financial planning and money management into bite-size pieces—with immediately actionable advice. Covering the key tasks in every area of personal finance, Solin shows you how to:
Analyze your money problems and get motivated to solve them
Get out of debt fast, and draw up a budget you can live on—and live with
Blow off useless commission-based advisors and learn to take control of your own financial future
Buy the health/life/disability/auto insurance you need—and only what you need
Invest so that—finally—your money works for you, not someone else
Step by simple step, this is advice that you can actually understand and follow. You can avoid debt-addiction and other financial hazards, as well as learn to harness the power of the web to put your money to work.

"The Smartest Investment Book You'll Ever Read will provide the enlightenment and gumption to free yourself from the clutches of the investment industry and the wisdom and direction necessary to get yourself back on track."

Every day you wait costs you money. Take control of your financial future now!
This book will change the way you think about and invest in your retirement savings plan-forever.
Internationally bestselling author and consumer advocate Dan Solin challenges some basic and misguided assumptions about traditional retirement plans to reveal that:
? 401(k) and 403(b) plans are laden with Porky Pig fees, poor investment choices, and conflicts of interest. You may be better off just saying "No!"
? There is a simple way to make smart choices in these plans- and this book shows you exactly what to do and which funds to avoid.
? There is one investment that could be the key to a successful retirement plan. You can do it yourself, with pre-tax or after-tax money. Create your own, inflation-proof pension plan that is guaranteed to provide you with monthly income for as long as you live, and beyond!
Smart Investing is not complicated. You have the power to make meaningful changes to your retirement savings plan-no matter what your age or financial status.
"If you haven't taken a recent look at what your own retirement investments are doing and-perhaps even more important-how they are put together, reading Solin's smart little book might provide the impetus for action." -Miami Herald
