Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Growing up in a family-run investment advisory business and then working with the highly effective financial strategies he discovered within the powerhouse Hollywood studios of Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers, Alan Haft has been involved in the world of finance for most of his life. Having formed a company with Oscar-nominated actor James Woods; helped take a technology company public; and raised money, planned productions, and obsessed over every last detail to ensure the profitability of various film projects, Haft realized the road to success in Hollywood in many ways mirrors the prudent principles of successful investing.

Today, as a nationally recognized financial advisor, speaker, and columnist, Haft has successfully guided many people—from movie stars with a king's ransom to married couples with a large mortgage—to reach their financial goals and increase their standard of living. Now, in You Can Never Be Too Rich, Haft uses his vast knowledge base, highly innovative investment concepts, and entertaining style of writing to create proven investment solutions that will help you do the same.

In You Can Never Be Too Rich, Haft shares his much sought-after financial advice and reveals how to minimize risk and take advantage of the opportunities that can lead to a lifetime of financial security. With this down-to-earth and highly informative book as your guide, you'll quickly learn how to build and protect wealth and discover investment secrets that many Wall Street brokers and advisors would prefer you didn't know about.

Along the way, you'll also become familiar with:

  • An extremely simple investment strategy that is statistically proven to outperform most of Wall Street's top fund managers

  • A step-by-step guide that not only helps assist investors with building diversified investment portfolios, but also provides them with the knowledge that gives them the best chances to "buy low and sell high"

  • An effortless way to automatically lock in your highest stock market values and later draw income from them for the rest of your life

  • How to potentially more than double your income at retirement with a "Private Pension" that you cannot outlive

  • How your parent(s) can potentially leave you "a free million dollars" at no cost to you or them

  • And much, much more

Filled with the in-depth insights and practical advice of one of today's most experienced financial advisors, You Can Never Be Too Rich clearly focuses on how anybody—whether you're just starting to work or well on your way to retirement—can consistently sustain financial success without getting caught up in market swings, tax traps, or poor investment decisions. With this book, Haft doesn't rely on gimmicks or get-rich-quick schemes to help you reach your goals; he simply offers proven and easy-to-understand strategies that will allow you to make profitable financial decisions based on your specific situation.

This book is written for the rookie investor just getting started as well as someone trying to plan for retirement or already retired. The insight into the stock brokerage business is both alarming and helpful. Now you know why brokers push certain funds! A really good read. Highly recommend.

Dismayed by Wall Street? Looking to learn all the things your broker has never told you, or, better put: doesn't know about? His insights and vision of the entire financial picture are all well executed and integrated into a book that is packed with punch. The only thing I don't exactly agree with in the book are his views on diversification: too much diversification lowers one's overall returns, and he does address this, countering this by his explanation of "flavors of the day," which to him, represents the only part of a portfolio that is somewhat actively traded. I'm not too sure about the total "buy and hold" approach - in these days of highly troubled stock markets, I doubt many could bear watching their accounts go down in value, and many I'm sure will want to sell out and not hold "their children" for the long haul. That said, his "systematic" approach to investing offers the reader a simple STRUCTURE and PROCESS which is far better than most shoddy financial advisors that probably couldn't tell you anything about their system of investing, which is why, when push comes to shove, I give this book a top rating - while I dont exactly agree with all his views on investing, Mr. haft does offer something that most financial advisors couldn't: have a firm grasp on his subject matter, stick with a solid approach and doesnt deviate from it. Furthermore, I have to say, the chapters on Life Insurance, Structured CD's (referred to as growth CDs) and Annuities has opened my eyes into investment products that I never thought of integrating into my portfolio, but now after reading this book, I am absolutely convinced I should consider. Be sure to read the section about what he calls The Private Pension: his introduction to the subject (where he compares it to a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich) is a true gem, and the strategy is something everyone should understand for their retirement goals. Really, a valiant effort and something I'm sure everyone can get a lot of benefit from.

I don't have a lot of time to spend on my investments. I spend most of my time on how to make it, not how to keep it.

This book not only gave me some simple advice for investing, but more importantly, told me what NOT to do.

Most of these books are BS, but this one is the real deal. A small investment toward your larger ones.

I met with Mr. Haft at a seminar that he led in California about a year and a half ago. The seminar was very informative and has worked extremely well with my portfolio. I had wished I took better notes. :( So much information was given that day I wanted to attend his next seminar but unfortunately it was across the country. Now that he has a book out I cannot wait to apply these strategies. I just wish I had it sooner!!!

Thank you for putting these strategies in easy to understand, concise terms that the "average guy" off the street (me) can grasp and actually use. If he is in your area I highly recommend going to see his investment strategies seminars.

a fan of alan haft's blogs now for a while, i was satisfied with the information in the book and was hoping for more of the analogies and stories he uses in the blogs. i especially liked the opening where he uses hollywood metaphors to teach us lessons on investing.
