Great Advice from Two Great Minds-Easy to Read
on February 27, 2002
Let's face it. Keeping track of changing tax laws and estate laws isn't much fun. The new laws mean we must re-evaluate our financial situations. Where do you start? I'd recommend this book. Here's why:
Harold Apolinsky is the single person most responsible for getting the estate tax repealed. Stewart Welch III handles the financial porfolios of the nation's wealthiest individuals. These two are a financial dynamic duo!
You'll be getting the best information that's out there in a remarkably easy-to-read, logical, organized fashion. You don't have the read every page. Just skip to the topic you're interested in and Viola! begin digesting the contents. You'll appreciate the bullet points and short paragraphs. Though the subject is dry, the book is anything but.
In my opinion, the best aspect of this book is that it focuses on the important stuff. Stewart and Harold tell parables or stories about what happens when one fails to plan. Then they take the time to walk you through all the questions you should ask yourself. I appreciated the way topics were discussed, followed by case examples to illustrate the point.
The book is sold as a paperback--so you can easily read snippets of it while you take the commuter train to work, or while waiting at Johnny's baseball practice. The bottom line is that professional advice from these men would ordinarily cost hundreds of dollars. By reading this book, you can pick their brains for less than 20 bucks.
This book would make a great gift to baby-boomers and young people alike.
If you are not a do-it-yourselfer, Welch and Apolinsky supply a list of professional advisors. (Name, firm, phone number and E-mail).
While the book is not a thriller, you'll be thrilled you read the wisdom contained in its pages.
