Though a bit dated (2002/2003), it offers a good amount of information and detail on the 401(k) plan for the beginner. The authors build a good case and show by examples why investing for retirement is important and how starting early can make a lot of difference. It was a quick read even with a lot of financial terms explained and I believe I am wiser having read it.

This is a great 'starter kit' for anyone. It's also a perfect primer for college graduates who are lucky, smart and connected enough to get a job. 401-K information isn't a college course unless one majors in finance, etc., so the average newly-employed should have a working knowledge of who is doing what with their money and how they can maximize their fund (for retirement or how to roll it over when they leave that job in 2 years for the next one....) Straigforward, well-organized and easy to use, the vocabulary and definitions are most helpful. Get this and any other financial 'For Dummies' by the same author(s) and you'll be ahead of the game.

Format: Paperback
Hardly an in depth look into retirement plans. It also doesn't help you manage your retirement plan at all. Just tells you about possible plans and how they might work. Very shallow common sense analysis. Don't waste your money just call the company and you can get as much information in a brochure they provide.

Very useful information. Without the legal jargon. I wanted to find out the basics without trying to make a career of it. This did the job
