Overview

Did you read about the janitor who donated $1 million dollars to his local library?  Do you ever watch in amazement as your well-off boss haggles over the price of a tuna fish sandwich?  Is it possible to find an advisor to help you invest your money—without losing it all to a Bernie Madoff-like con man?
In the same spirit of Reader’s Digest magazine’s popular 13 Things They Won’t Tell You series, the editors at America’s Most Trusted Magazine have developed the ultimate roadmap for making the most of your money and avoiding the wallet-sucking scams that are keeping you off Easy Street. We talked to everyday and not-so-everyday rich folks, and to the experts who helped make them rich, to learn their secrets on what to save for, how much to save—and where to stash cash so that it grows (hint: not that bank savings account).  We also got their tips for developing “rich guy vision”: The uncanny ability to make financial goals and reach them in five, ten even 20 years—while smartly navigating economic pitfalls and surprises.
You’ll learn what services you should be getting for free, how to ask the right questions to get behind-the-scenes deals, and how to “live rich” even on an everyday budget. You’ll stop wasting money, blowing your budget (or flying blind without one), and getting scammed.  This book will enlighten you, horrify you, and give you a whole new perspective on when to spend and when to stash it deep in your pockets.
            Inside you’ll discover countless eye-opening strategies for:
 
Saving and investing. The savvy tricks you need to know to grow your money wisely—from branching out beyond your 401K to getting tax breaks you didn’t know you deserved.  Plus: what the IRS, stockbrokers, and bankers won’t tell you.
