The guide readers need to retire richer—from the international bestselling author of The Smartest Investment Book You'll Ever Read.

In this New York Times bestselling guide, author Daniel R. Solin takes issue with the commonly held belief that participating in defined contribution retirement plans is a “no-brainer” because of the employer match.

While providing readers with comprehensive, accessible information on the most common deferred compensation plans, annuities, and other retirement-based investments, he shows the 70 million participants currently in those plans how to create the best portfolio with often limited options.

In his straight-forward, no-nonsense style, Solin offers the new rules for investing for retirement and shows readers how to quickly and simply determine their own needs, get control of their assets, avoid scams and sucker bets, discover untapped resources at retirement, and eventually get income out of tax deferred plans—the smart way.

Editorial Reviews

John C. Bogle
The tax-deferred retirement plan is the single best way to invest for long-term financial well- being. But far too many of these plans have costs and pitfalls that are hazardous to your wealth. Dan Solin's wonderful book explains why the idea is so good, and why so many plans are bad. Read it, attend to its cautions, act on its recommendations, and when the time comes, enjoy a comfortable retirement. (John C. Bogle, Founder, The Vanguard Group)
