From the #1 independent financial advisor in America, ranked three times by Barron’s: a guide to making the most of your retirement plans and assuring long-term financial security.

Everyone knows that saving for your retirement is important. Yet only half of all eligible Americans contribute to a retirement plan. That’s because all plans - including the 401(k), 403(b), 457, and even the IRA - are complicated, confusing, and costly. New York Times best-selling author and acclaimed financial advisor Ric Edelman has counseled thousands of savers and retirees and has accumulated his advice in this audiobook.

Edelman has created a step-by-step guide. With illuminating prose and simple explanations, he shares everything you need to know as a plan participant: how to contribute even when you think you can’t afford to, how to make wise choices among your investment options, and how to convert your 401(k) into income so you can provide yourself with the lifestyle you want in retirement. Along the way, he debunks the myths and clears up the confusion.

    "Very Good Information, but the 2nd Half was Dry"
    If you could sum up The Truth about Retirement Plans and IRAs in three words, what would they be?

    Any additional comments?

    This was a good book and had some great information. But, the 2nd half has too many instances where he either says, "it depends" or goes into great detail about specific situations that I will never face or won't need to think about for a while.

    I'm more of a simple investor and breaking things down into simple terms would help me. I realize there are situations where you need to hire an adviser, but in a book, he should stick to the basics.

    "Very Very Useful"

    I've been following Ric's books since many years ago and I always find his work to be very easy to digest and are very straight forward.
