Publisher's Summary

If you are one of the 70 million Americans counting on your 401(k) plan to usher you into a comfortable old age, you're likely to be bitterly disappointed. Rather than benefit the employee, 401(k) plans reward employers, brokers, investment advisors, fund managers, insurance companies, unions, and lobbyists. Relying on these plans makes it increasingly difficult to retire comfortably.

In his straight-forward, no-nonsense style, best-selling author Daniel R. Solin offers the new rules for investing for retirement. He 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.

    "A must read"

    I found the book very helpful, and applied many of the investment tips. It also led me to read, A Random Walk Down Wallstreet,The little Book of Common Sense Investing, and the Smartest Money book You'll Ever Read. I've loved Arthur Morey (narrator) since, The Evolution of God. If you need ideas on how to get started, you'll love this book. It is simple and based on other readings it is truthful!

    "Smart for sure, but is it up to date?"

    This was an excellent listen, along with it's companion "The Smartest IRA Book You'll Ever Read". Very insightful, if you shuffle your 401K allocations to match with the recommendations about varios index funds, you will have achieved an instant ROI with this book.

    "Makes you think"

    I think the best lesson learned is that money is not the only thing to plan for a happy retirement. I do not normally enjoy "self help" books but this one was interesting. I'll probably listen to it again in a couple of years to keep myself on track for retirement and remind myself of all the factors that go into a happy retirement.

    Story
    "This book file appears to be corrupted"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The book was OK, but I only got about an hour into it before my ipod froze. The last time this happened, Audible was fair, but it took me a long time to resolve and I did not get to finish the book anyway because they had to request an uncorrupted copy. That takes several weeks.. Rather than go through the hassle of that, I just stopped reading and discarded the book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    See previous response.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    See previous response.


    Could you see The Smartest 401(k) Book You'll Ever Read being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    No
