Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Financial expert Pond (Your Money Matters) here shares fundamental strategies for seizing control of your financial life, including tips on profitable long-term investing and on everyday ways to save money. While his advice is not new, his emphasis on surviving the current financial meltdown makes his suggestions relevant to savvy investors wanting to protect their assets now and establish long-term financial strength for the future. Audie Award winner Dick Hill (Grow Your Money) solidly and steadily narrates the material, which is likely to appeal to those intrigued by Pond's many TV appearances. Especially attractive to investors. [Audio clip available through www.tantor.com.—Ed.]—Dale Farris, Groves, TX
