Most books on this subject try to scare (or perhaps bore) you into submission. The Shortest Book Ever on Saving for Retirement is different. It's short, comprehensive, and most importantly of all, it's understandable. By sticking to the bare minimum on what you really need to know about investing in your future no matter the economic climate, James O'Donnell has provided the tool we all need and don't yet have.
There are plenty of books out there to confuse readers, make things seem financially hopeless, or present a quick fix to real financial struggles. This is not one of those books. Saving for retirement is a long-haul activity. But with the proper tools, guidance, and encouragement, anyone and everyone can do this. This book uses simple, concise terms in a readable style to address the most crucial issues that affect your future financial health--whether you know it now or not!
Finance pro James O'Donnell has refreshed and updated the content of his 2008 book The Shortest Investment Book Ever to better reflect the brave, new economic world we find ourselves in.
Look at these topics in a whole new light: Investing, Social Security, 401(k) and 403(b) accounts, Diversification, Mutual Funds, IRAs, and Annuities. Don't stay lost. Read this book--it actually makes sense (and it will only take a couple of hours).
