Description of Useful Information In his book, "How To Become Financially Independent: Your Road to Financial Security in an Unstable Economic Environment," Dr. Simini presents an outline of ten steps one can use to achieve wealth. Without some plan of action becoming wealthy by the average person is virtually impossible. The book is well thought out. It starts off by giving a short financial quiz. Then the reader is asked to think enough of himself/herself to put himself first in the order of financial priority. The reader is then given a budget form to fill out to put himself first. A wisdom from the ancients is revealed. The author goes on to discuss inflation, interest and leveraging. These expository revelations alone should make the book a best-seller. Investment vehicles are discussed both PRO and CON. What a person should avoid investing in and what he should invest in AND WHY. Real estate, as your home and as an investment, is described as a necessary investment (a place to live) and a leveraged investment vehicle. Both these types of investments have income tax benefits. In the Appendix are: A discussion of income taxes and real estate; A glossary of real estate terms; and Answers to the financial quiz. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE A GIFT TO EVERY SON, DAUGHTER, GRANDSON AND GRANDDAUGHTER. And for older persons -- it's never too late to start on one's way to financial independence.
