The majority of investment books today deal strictly with the external strategies to help you maximize your retirement. This book teaches you how to master “the inside game” including how to hire the best advisor for you at this point in your life. Fact: Since 2000, Americans saving for retirement have seen their nest-eggs decimated by two catastrophic stock market crashes, and the biggest financial crisis in the U.S. since the Great Depression. With the global economy still in turmoil and the potential for another market crash on the near horizon, today’s generation of retirees and near-retirees can’t afford to rely on outdated, stock market-based savings and investment strategies that put them at high risk for damaging losses. The good news is that they don’t have to. For 17 years, author David J. Scranton has been teaching investors how to protect their retirement money from stock market turmoil through non-stock alternatives designed to generate reliable retirement income and provide reasonable, strategic portfolio growth.
