Overview

According to financial publisher and bestselling author Howard Ruff, there are two distinctly different and equally desirable financial Heavens, and a distinct and different route to get to each one. The choice is yours. One destination is Safely Prosperous and the other is Really Rich.

Safely Prosperous or Really Rich? examines both of these strategies, and carefully guides you down whichever path you decide to take. The first part of this book–The Safe Road to Prosperity–is for those of you who want to live comfortably with no risk or financial worries and a secure future, even after retirement. You’ll be introduced to the ten most important, and near-universal, mistakes that people make that abort their prosperity, including the common and costly investment mistakes that can often destroy years of financial discipline and savings. By following this route, you’ll discover how to become debt free, while accumulating a bit more money than you really need.

In the second part of the book–The Secrets of the Really Rich–you’ll be introduced to the most important things rich people have always done (and continue to do) to get rich. This section will teach you how to make the leap from the Safely Prosperous to the Really Rich. Ruff reveals that it’s not just how much money the really rich have or how smart they are, it’s their attitude toward risk and fear, their understanding of when to break the rules that the Safely Prosperous follow, and their knowledge of a few simple capitalistic principles that allows them to accumulate serious wealth. By following this route, you’ll not only learn how to get rich, you’ll discover how to stay rich.

Safely Prosperous or Really Rich? is a unique book that allows you to choose your financial destination when making decisions about your money and your life. Depending on which path you choose to take, prosperity or real wealth is well within your reach, and with Safely Prosperous or Really Rich? as your guide, you can make this happen faster than you could ever imagine.

Howard J Ruff counts on the fears of people to sell his books. Also Ruff knows that you most likely have not read his 1979 clasic that stated the USA would see long lasting inflation, wide spred black market activity and a collaps of the financial system in the 1980'S !!! This is the author that advised in 1979 to commit a fixed portion of your income each month to a stockpile of consumer goods: amunition, tools, food, also bone up on your survival skills. Fast-forward to 1999 and a new book timed on the Y2K 'crisis'. Again Ruff takes advantage of the fears of the day to sell high priced doomsayer advice. It is up to the reader to decide the validity of these books however the works of Howard J Ruff should be read as a novel rather than financial advice.

This book offers a somewhat rambling compendium of solid (if unoriginal) investment advice. Author Howard Ruff's strength is his blunt, straightforward, unpretentious style. He covers a great deal of ground, discussing everything from the advisability of investing in gold to the principles of life and time management. Many readers will no doubt find this both useful and refreshing. Others will look for more depth ¿ and the author obliges by including appendices with sources of additional information on various topics. We suggest this book to those who are new at financial planning and who lust for wealth, but are willing to settle for prosperity. And safety. And sound investing.

The information that is presented in the book is to general and most of the information presented is well know by most people today. To much self promotion & promotion of others in this book. In my opinion the book should had been classified as a magazine. Since in a magazine you known you get promotions and advertisements. Overall, do not buy the book put the money your going to spend into a savings account since you will earn more from it that way.
