Overview

Like intrepid hunters, you are involved in a serious race -- winning the money game. Inflation may be outpacing you. The financial industry is outthinking and outmaneuvering you. Banks and insurance companies are outsmarting you. And your government is outvoting you. Everyone else, it seems, has their own agenda for your money.

Overview

Like intrepid hunters, you are involved in a serious race -- winning the money game. Inflation may be outpacing you. The financial industry is outthinking and outmaneuvering you. Banks and insurance companies are outsmarting you. And your government is outvoting you. Everyone else, it seems, has their own agenda for your money. Most people know more about greening up their lawns, visiting lush vacation spots, and discussing last night's TV sitcom than about how to become wealthier. They spend more time earning their wealth than learning how to manage it.

Get Rich Slow will enable you to tap into the powerful yet simple wealth-building tools the rich use to build and grow their fortunes. Whether you're trying to avoid the common mistakes most investors make, buy your next money pit (I'm sorry, I mean house), stomp out credit card debt, find the right mutual funds to invest in, or discover how to "cover your assets" with the right kinds of insurance, Get Rich Slow will give you the financial knowledge and wisdom you need to make the right choices. You will learn controversial personal finance truths, such as why retirement plans such as 401(k)s may not be your best bet, why your home could be your worst investment, why some no-load mutual funds can cost you more, and why your guaranteed pension may not be so guaranteed. Some people will inherit their wealth. The rest of us have no choice but to earn it, save it, and learn how to put it to work. Get rich yourself...a dollar at a time.
