Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Funding retirement is the major financial goal for most of us. Armstrong (founder, Investor Solutions, Inc.) and Brown (Grow Rich Slowly) team up to explain how to get the most out of various investment options. They forcefully warn that most Americans are not financially prepared for retirement and present scenarios of what to do, depending on your age and level of financial preparation. Especially timely is their advice on how to recover from the 2008 stock market crash. All in all, essential reading for everyone-except maybe the very wealthy.
