Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Worrying about the financial crisis has become a global obsession. Financial planner Jonathan Pond thinks that such understandable anxiety wastes time and doesn't answer the essential question: How can I weather this storm? In Safe Money in Hard Times, the author of Grow Your Money! and You Can Do It! delivers real-world advice on how to keep a nest egg during an economic winter.
From the Publisher
"[Pond's] emphasis on surviving the current financial meltdown makes his suggestions relevant to savvy investors.... Audie Award winner Dick Hill solidly and steadily narrates the material." —-Library Journal
