    I thought I was too young to retire but...

    Until the recent downtrend in the economy I thought I was too young to worry about retirement. Now I realize I should be planning although it may be years away, and this book was a great help in setting priorities and goals. Highly recommended!

    Bond Primer

    I never cared much about bonds until the stock market collapsed. After that, I decided I better educate myself. At the bookstore, everything I looked at was lacking. But I was happy to discover this book has three excellent chapters on bond investing -- and a lot more. I especially appreciated the section on the pros and cons of individual bonds versus bond mutual funds. I also liked the book¿s online bond resources. After I finish reading it, I¿m going to lend it to my parents to read all the estate planning advise.
