Alan B. Ungar is president of Financial Counsel and has more than 20 years' experience in financial planning. He is the author of Financial Self-Confidence for the Suddenly Single: A Woman's Guide.From Publishers Weekly:
The authors, certified financial planners, offer comprehensible advice on all aspects of stock options, including when to exercise tax considerations, divorce transactions, job negotiations and more. Especially helpful are the sections on charitable giving and estate taxes--significant topics that are not often addressed. The book will be of particular interest to readers whose options have dramatically declined in value since the dot-com shakeout. However, the frequent references to the authors' business make the book read like an expanded sales pitch rather than an authoritative tome.
