Overview

Award-winning personal finance columnist read by millions of people each week

The Incredibly Simple, Step-by-Step Guide to Investing Money for Your Future!

“A cover-to-cover must-read for everyone 16 to 60 who wants to live the American Dream. The earlier we choosetosave®, the sooner we can stop saving, and the later we start saving the more we need to know in order to catch up. What you need to know; where you can find the answers; how you can take action. It is all here.” 

–Dallas Salisbury, CEO, Employee Benefit Research Institute and American Savings Education Council (www.choosetosave.org)

“Bookstores are full of tomes advising people how to save for retirement, yet millions of people are still hopelessly confused about what they should do. Gail MarksJarvis breaks it down into simple steps that anyone can do to ensure a more comfortable retirement. Read this book and prosper!”

–Liz Pulliam Weston, MSN Money Personal finance columnist and best-selling author of Your Credit Score

“This book offers a sensible, sophisticated approach for tackling the daunting challenge of saving for retirement. The good news? You can retire–without living on canned food or buying lottery tickets–if you follow Gail’s realistic strategies for saving, investing, and ultimately spending money in retirement.”

–Susan Tompor, Detroit Free Press

“You can wallpaper a warehouse with all of the awful investment advice offered up every year in newspapers, magazines, and books. One of the most difficult tasks is to separate the get-rich-quick hype from the truly worthwhile knowledge thatwill make you wealthy over time. I’m thrilled to say that Gail MarksJarvis has cut through the claptrap of investment cacophony and provided not only a solid plan for retirement saving, but a realistic, common-sense approach to personal finance in general. This is a triumph.”

–John F. Wasik, Bloomberg News personal finance columnist and author, The Merchant of Power

Drawn from responses to questions from over 20,000 readers of the author’s personal finance columns.

    Great all around information for retirement planning

    I read this book cover to cover and totally re-vamped our existing 401K once I was finished. I did not understand how to choose where to put my money when I picked this book up (looking at the 401K options were making my head spin), but now I'm confident in the new choices that I've made and I have a clear picture of where I'm headed and what to do to keep my money on track over the next few decades. The only negative thing about the book is it's redundant at times, but the information is really great. She writes in a way that is extremely easy to understand - I'm a Stay at Home Mom with NO financial education - with clear answers to almost any question you could have. And, best of all, she gives clear advice on how to allocate your portfolio at given ages. Great book! I'd recomend it to anyone!
