"If you want a handy guide that provides information in small chunks, Solin's book is it." -Newark Star-Ledger
The Amazon Book Review
Book recommendations, author interviews, editors' picks, and more. Read it now.
Solin's previous entries in this series were clever, breezy guides to navigating through the financial morass without getting hurt... This new book gets into the basics of investment in context with the present economic scene, so reading the earlier volumes doesn't mean that you won't get anything out of this one.
...Solin casts his wise eye and sharp pen on other important subjects like reverse mortgages, age of social security distribution, prenuptial agreements for seniors, options and implications of delaying retirement...
The best thing that Solin brings to the party is his shrewd and skeptical approach to the art and science of investing. ...there's no question that his focus is on what's best for individuals, not institutions.
Throughout, Solin writes clearly with style and humor but stays on topic and doesn't bloviate or pontificate excessively. He includes a number of charts and other tools to figure out what to do with your money so it grows into the amount you will need to live on for the rest of your days."
--Richard Pachter, Miami Herald
"These two books are very different in format-Solin (The Smartest Investment Book You'll Ever Read) offers short chapters on a variety of retirement subjects, each concluding with a pithy summarization, while Jason (principal, Jackson, Grant Investment Advisers, Inc.) gives a more explanatory dissertation. But both are clearly written and easy to understand, tackling such topics as stocks, bonds, annuities, pensions, and cash withdrawal strategies (although Solin's book offers a handy section on care costs, Jason's does not). Jason's will be better for readers not as familiar with basic finance concepts, while Solin's may appeal to a more financially literate crowd."
