Sintesi dell'editore

If you are one of the 70 million Americans counting on your 401(k) plan to usher you into a comfortable old age, you're likely to be bitterly disappointed. Rather than benefit the employee, 401(k) plans reward employers, brokers, investment advisors, fund managers, insurance companies, unions, and lobbyists. Relying on these plans makes it increasingly difficult to retire comfortably.

In his straight-forward, no-nonsense style, best-selling author Daniel R. Solin offers the new rules for investing for retirement. He shows readers how to quickly and simply determine their own needs, get control of their assets, avoid scams and sucker bets, discover untapped resources at retirement, and eventually get income out of tax deferred plans - the smart way.

A must read

I found the book very helpful, and applied many of the investment tips. It also led me to read, A Random Walk Down Wallstreet,The little Book of Common Sense Investing, and the Smartest Money book You'll Ever Read. I've loved Arthur Morey (narrator) since, The Evolution of God. If you need ideas on how to get started, you'll love this book. It is simple and based on other readings it is truthful!

Short, sweet, and to the point!

This book gets the point across very concisely while packing in a lot of data and info, without going on and on in repetitive or excessive detail. Highly recommended!

Old School Advice

For its time the advice may not have been bad but it still lacks whole areas of considerations, like tax avoidance strategies. The author’s recommended Roth IRA option doesn’t beat a Traditional IRA if your yearly withdrawal amounts during retirement equal the standard IRS tax deduction, and you make up the rest of your yearly expense needs by withdrawing from a taxable brokerage account that’s subject to long term capital gains tax. With this strategy investing with the deferred tax Traditional IRA option allows you to invest the tax savings in a taxable brokerage account and grow your wealth even more. But the author says “go with a Roth IRA” and just leaves it at that. This is just one example.

Repetitive and a sales pitch

401k wrapped version of whey index funds are better, with explicit and repetitive calculations for x grow to y better in index funds. Fine since it covers 401k plans along with annuities and index funds. Won’t buy his other investing books that he keeps referring in this one.

A waste of money!

The author makes a lot of nonsense claims about the "dark side" of retirement plans.

Worked for me

I just got into the work force and wanted to plan accordingly. This book taught alot to a complete newbie with minimal time investment. You still should research asset allocation, ira, 401k, etf, mutual fund etc. Most top IRA top vendors (Vanguard, Fidelity, ...) have really good resources for knowledge. I also recommend Reddit.

457, 403B, 401k, IRA

Where does The Smartest 401(k) Book You'll Ever Read rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the most comprehensive book on retirement plans and funds that I have gained knowledge from. It encompassed the reason we(businesses) started the retirement plans, how much investment employers have in these plans, and what plans are more beneficial.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it covers the math on how much money you can save on fees from your managers, strategies on how to go about increasing your wealth over time. Mind you I am not a big fan of these types of plans to begin with but if you have one and want to find good use for it this would be a very helpful book, but remember there are still creative ways to make your money grow using these plans.
