Review:

Charles Schwab's Guide to Financial Independence: Simple Solutions for Busy People, by the founder of the pioneering discount brokerage firm that bears his name, is a nuts-and-bolts handbook for people who recognize the importance of investing, but know little, or nothing, about how to do it. Charts that illustrate complex financial concepts and worksheets that help readers prepare individual fiscal agendas keep the focus on making proper choices and developing workable plans. Utilizing his 40 years of financial experience, and relying completely on his admitted bias for stocks, Schwab explains the ins and outs of planning an investment, choosing the components and bracing for taxes, putting the plan into action, and preparing for future developments.

From the Back Cover:

Dear Reader,

        Why do so many people put investing at the bottom of the list? There's a perception that investing is time consuming, that it's only for the pros, that the stock market is too risky. Well, the good news is that investing is easily demystified. You just have to do a little homework. The key is to get started, and to do it now.

        If I sound passionate about this, I am. I've spent 40 years living and breathing investing; I know what to do, and I'm eager to pass on what I've learned. I could explain most of what you need to know over a long lunch.

        Think of this book as everything I would share with you during that lunch. Read it. Try out the suggestions. Remember, the biggest risk in investing is doing nothing.

Charles R. Schwab
