Overview

Protect your financial future against virtually every form of unforeseen disaster

"Everyone should read [Crashproof Your Life]."­­John C. Danforth, former U.S. senator (R-Missouri)

"Provocative and eye-opening . . ."­­Inside Business

In these economic times, Americans need to protect themselves from professional, financial, and personal disaster. In his many years as a partner in a major international law firm, attorney Thomas Schweich has seen hundreds of people, from all walks of life, ruined by unexpected financial mistakes.

Now, in Crashproof Your Life, Schweich shares with readers the fruits of his experience guiding victims of financial disaster. He has developed a comprehensive three-part "crashproofing" plan for avoiding most types of professional, fiscal, and personal disasters. Readers get solid advice on how to protect themselves against layoffs and workplace traumas; how to control wasteful spending habits and avoid financial scams; and how to close insurance loopholes and ensure that friends and family don't deplete their hard-earned savings.
