Eric Tyson first became interested in money matters three decades ago. After toiling as a management consultant to Fortune 500 financial-services firms, Eric took his inside knowledge of the banking, investment, and insurance industries and committed himself to making personal financial management accessible to us all.
Today, Eric is an internationally acclaimed and best-selling personal finance book author, syndicated columnist, and speaker. He has worked with and taught people from all financial situations, so he knows the financial concerns and questions of real folks just like you. Despite being handicapped by an M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and a B.S. in Economics and Biology from Yale University, Eric remains a master at “keeping it simple.” An accomplished personal finance writer, his “Investor’s Guide” syndicated column is read by millions, and he was an award-winning columnist for the San Francisco Examiner. He is the author of six national best-selling financial books in the For Dummies series on personal finance and investing. He is also author of Mind Over Money: Your Path to Wealth and Happiness (CDS Books). Eric’s work has been featured and quoted in hundreds of publications including Newsweek, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine, Parenting, Money, and Family Money, and on NBC’s Today Show, ABC, CNBC, the PBS Nightly Business Report, CNN, CBS national radio, NPR’s Sound Money, and Bloomberg Business Radio.
Tony Martin set off to see the world after graduating from Queen’s University with a business degree. (His best buy? A two-day “cruise” from Jakarta to Singapore for $8 — which included a place on deck to roll out his sleeping bag, and fish and rice three times a day!) He then joined CBC radio, and since then has been involved in helping people understand the world of money. He excels at equipping individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to make better financial and investment choices for themselves and their family.
Tony is also the co-author with Eric of Investing For Canadians For Dummies.v His widely read column “Me and My Money” appears in “Net Worth,” The Globe and Mail’s weekend personal finance section. His work has been featured in many leading publications, including ROB Magazine, Reader’s Digest, and Canadian Business. Tony is a frequent commentator and speaker on personal finance and investing. He regularly appears on television and radio, including CBC Radio, CBC Television, Report on Business Television, and TVOntario.
Tony has also been instrumental in the design and development of many online resources, including a complete online investor training program using simulated stock market transactions.
