Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gaining control over one's financial life necessitates a repudiation of the two greatest motivating forces: fear and greed. More than just a guide to investing ``surplus capital,'' this book by well-known financial analyst Savage provides sound advice and guidance for maximizing the return from all income. Gaining control and direction of one's thinking, which requires the investor to think critically and analyze virtually every aspect of monetary endeavor, results in a similar level of control over money. Savage stresses the concept of financial planning--the idea of setting money aside to grow for the future--as well as making smart decisions about how and when to purchase and finance today's needs. He points out that ``asset allocation'' involves an intelligent application of resources to both the demands of the present and the future. Savage discusses and explains all forms of investment, as well as strategies for everyday money handling. Highly recommended.-- Philip Y. Blue, Dowling Coll. Lib., Oakdale, N.Y.

Don't expect the traditional "save now, spend later" advice from Savage (though, of course, there is a bit of lecturing about debt). Instead, this syndicated columnist and author takes the plunge and actually suggests specific investments, often by brand name. She touts certain no-load (no sales commission) mutual funds, lauds the benefits of zero coupon bonds, and advises steps to cut nursing-home costs, among other suggestions. The common thread is her down-to-earth explanations of terms that might confound even the more experienced investor (e.g., "unit investment trusts"). "Terry's tips" are short blurbs discussing both the merits and the faults of particular financial strategies. Combine Savage's advice with a constant eye on changing IRS rules, new congressional laws, and President Clinton's budget plans.
