    Re the Interesting Read and investing money – if you want to learn more about investing for retirement, I highly recommend reading William Bernstein’s ‘If You Can.’

    You can get it free on Amazon (for kindle) or you can find a free PDF version online.

    It’s a VERY short starter retirement finance booklet (16 pages total) that will give you a roadmap on how to educate yourself.

    I found it years ago referenced in a NYTimes article – and it changed my life. Really.

      I agree! There is no substitute for educating yourself about personal finance and reading Bernstein’s list of books will make you a well-educated investor who is much better equipped to deal with the ups and downs in the markets and far less likely to be taken advantage of by an unscrupulous financial “advisor.”
