Secure your home with a 30-year mortgage and do so while you still have a job and can get the loan.

Protect your income with the right questions to ask your employer about business continuity coverage, Phoenix plans, and other company-saving procedures.

Defend your business with key man coverage, cross training, data backups, off-site storage, consultants, and other strategies.

Help others in their time of need to make sure that no one is left behind.

Plan your next investment moves by developing carefully designed, highly diversified long-term portfolios that will weather any storm.

About the Author:

He is also the author of three bestsellers, The Truth About Money, The New Rules of Money and the #1 New York Times bestseller, Ordinary People, Extraordinary Wealth.

From Publishers Weekly:

In yet another demonstration of the industry's quick response to the September 11 terrorist attacks, Ric Edelman (The Truth About Money; Ordinary People, Extraordinary Wealth) offers Financial Security in Troubled Times: What You Need to Do Now. "In the aftermath of that terrible day, people have begun to wonder about the safety and security of their jobs, their investments, their homes and their families," he writes. To that end, he presents eight chapters which discuss cash reserves, mortgages, job security, estate plans, investment strategies and more. And although readers might question the quality of a book that was written "in just two days," this is nonetheless a timely financial guide.
