Cover of: Making the most of your money | Jane Bryant Quinn

About the Book

This classic book of solid and practical financial advice has been completely refocused to address new tax laws, new ways of paying for higher education, new forms of health insurance, and the completely new investment climate. This new edition sees yet another shift in financial energies -- a fresh round of serious borrowing, as the boomers start sending kids to college; a desire to save for retirement fast; and an obsession with keeping safe the profits that have already been made. Investing is becoming more complex, as more financial products and services come to market and as traditional guideposts change. More than ever, investors need a clear path through the undergrowth. The new Making the Most of Your Money is that path. It presents a new blueprint for twenty-first century success. - Jacket flap.
