The Kitchen-Table Investor: Low-Risk, Low-Maintenance Wealth-Building Strategies for Working Families by John F. F. Wasik

Finally, a time-tested, low-stress investment strategy for the rest of us.

Despite all the media hoopla about manic day traders, tech-stock speculators, and teenage millionaires, most Americans have neither the time nor the inclination to play games with their hard-earned savings. This sensible guide is for the millions of average investors — from new wage earners to single moms to middle-age workers anticipating retirement — looking for easy-to-execute, money-making investment strategies. Targeting households with annual incomes below six figures, personal-finance writer John F. Wasik explains how to:

—find extra cash each month to save and invest

—learn from the commonsense tactics of local investment clubs

—take advantage of dividend-reinvestment and direct-purchase plans

—maximize 401Ks, IRAs, and other retirement plans

—select the right mutual funds, government securities, or time-tested stocks

—commit to a strategy and let the money do all the work

Based on proven techniques that minimize risk, stress, and the demands on one's time, The Kitchen-Table Investor contains all the tools investors need to build a safe, secure nest egg.
