About the Author:

With more than 5 million books sold, Eric Tyson is one of the top bestselling personal finance authors in the country and has penned five national best-sellers. (He is also the only author to have four of his books simultaneously on Business Week’s business book best-seller list.) His syndicated newspaper column, “Investor’s Guide,” is read by more than 4 million people nationwide. His Personal Finance for Dummies, which was a Wall Street Journal bestseller, won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Business Book of the Year. Eric’s work has been featured and quoted in hundreds of publications and media outlets, including Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Forbes, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine, Money, Worth, Parenting, USA Today, and on ABC, Fox, PBS Nightly Business Report, CNN, CNBC, and on CBS national radio, NPR’s Marketplace, and Bloomberg Business Radio. He’s also been a featured speaker at a White House conference on retirement planning.

 

Eric is a former management consultant to Fortune 500 financial service firms. In 1990, Eric founded a financial counseling firm that worked exclusively on an hourly basis. In addition to his counseling work, Eric also hoped to make an impact in the writing and media fields. Much of the personal finance writing and reporting he saw and heard was biased, jargon-laden and, in some cases, provided bad advice. In addition to his writing and counseling, Eric also taught the nation’s most highly attended personal financial management course at the University of California. He has spoken at many corporations and nonprofits. His educational background includes having earned his bachelor’s degree in economics at Yale and an MBA at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
