About the Author
David L. Wright was born and raised in New York City and now resides in Southern California. He is the owner of DollarBits.com, a personal finance website. His lifelong avocation of researching investment opportunities and closely monitoring his investment portfolio began when he was in his teens.
During his professional career he worked as a computer programmer, an educator, a corporate executive, and even as an artist. Prior to taking early retirement, he spent ten years as the CFO for a privately held corporation where he acted as a fiduciary for the company's 401(k) retirement plan, selecting and monitoring the plan's investment lineup for the company's 1,500 plan participants.
Inspired by numerous employees, colleagues, acquaintances, and friends who knew they needed to invest for their retirement, but didn't know how to, Mr. Wright wrote INVESTING FOR THE REST OF US. This, his first book, has been extremely well received by both readers and reviewers alike.
Mr. Wright hopes that his writings will inspire others and will serve a meaningful purpose in their lives. Today, he continues writing for DollarBits.com while simultaneously working on his next personal finance book.
When he's not writing, Mr. Wright and his wife enjoy spending time with their pets and tending to their garden.

Thanks for a great book - I am adding it to my list of good investing books for the beginner.
I'm a private investor and people have asked me what book I'd recommend to understand the basics of retirement investing. These people tend to stress that investing and financial planning is neither a personal strength nor an interest. It's difficult to find a book that teaches the basic concepts of retirement investing well without getting too technical or too directed toward individual stock valuation. David's book rides this line well, along the lines of "The Little Book" investing series.
I'd recommend "Investing For The Rest Of Us" to those who want to take the next step in investing. The basic tenets in the book will likely set those who follow them up for better long term returns.
After a lifetime of financial planners and hit and miss investments, this book showed me the way for future investing. It also helped explain why to this point my returns were so poor.
This book does not pretend to be a strike it rich approach to investing, but rather a proven, consistent approach to realize good returns over the long term.
This investment approach is the tortoise not the hare. You won't get rich quick, but that's okay because with all my investments in the past 30 years, that never happened.
I recommend this book for any investor who like me, has no time or inclination to closely follow the markets.
Easy to follow. easy to understand, easy to implement. The younger you are, the more important it is that you read this book.
Far from being an expert, I wanted to learn and understand the basics of the stock market in the least painful way: this book was perfect for my quest. I have learned about index funds and how anyone can choose a portfolio that will pay off in the long term. The investments suggested in the book are not for those who favor a risky get rich fast approach, but they are for those who prefer a safer, steadier strategy that has proven to bring consistent results in the long term. I wish I had read this book many years ago but I am glad I have found it now. I highly recommend this book and I think kids should read it in school, for their own benefit.
