Are you prepared to achieve your financial goals? Will your savings and investments provide enough money to fund your retirement and pay for your children's education? Are you in control of your financial destiny? If you're like most people, the answer to these questions is no. The truth is the majority of us are too wrapped up in paying today's bills and too confused by conflicting financial information to develop and implement a sound plan for saving and investing. Sadly, the failure to plan guarantees an uncertain and perhaps even perilous financial future. Bill Griffeth's 10 Steps to Financial Prosperity is your guide to re-claiming your financial future. In a warm, easy-to-read style, CNBC anchor Bill Griffeth provides a step-by-step action plan to cut debt, build savings and invest wisely. Regardless of your current financial situation, this extraordinary book will provide you with the timeless, prosperity-building principles to achieve lifelong financial success. This book is not filled with a lot of financial mumbo-jumbo or esoteric theories about beating the stock market. Instead it offers a simple, clear guide to understanding and implementing the steps that are necessary to achieve financial security and independence. The 10 Steps To Financial Prosperity are: set financial goals, budget-ize yourself, create your own lifetime investment plan, make mutual funds your vehicle to prosperity, manage your debt, develop a do-it-yourself retirement plan, make your home a nest egg, use insurance as a safety net, create a will, and start your children on the road to prosperity. To help you implement the 10 Steps, the book includes an easy-to-use computer disk. The disk will tell you howto track your expenses, where you are spending too much money, precisely how much to save each month to fund your retirement and your children's education, and how to write your own will. You and your family's financial futures are too important to leave to chance. Read Bill Gri

This book is about the fictitious Seeker, who has known a lot of misery, and his visit to the "Library of Wisdom" where he meets another fictitious character - the Librarian- along with Warren Buffett and Charles Munger. The Seeker learns how to make better decisions to help his children avoid doing the dumb things he has done. For instance, he learns from Buffett and Munger the best way to prevent trouble is to avoid it altogether by learning what works and what does not. They do so in the spirit of the anonymous man who said: "All I want to know is where I'm going to die so I'll never go there." Additionally, the book provides examples of pure folly and some lessons on how to make fewer dumb mistakes than other people. And then how to fix mistakes faster, should you make them. The major lesson is "ignorance removal" and the notion that decision-making is not about making brilliant decision, but avoiding terrible ones. This is not a book for those who like complexities or advanced math - rather it's for those who love efficiency, simplicity and common sense or judgment - hallmarks of Buffett and Munger. Like Einstein, both have a remarkable ability to eliminate folly and superficiality and get directly to the heart of things. As with Poor Charlie's Almanack, Seeking Wisdom, A Few Lessons and The Most Important Thing, net proceeds from sales of All I Want To Know Is Where I'm Going To Die So I'll Never Go There will be donated to charitable, non-profit organizations.

Winner of the iParenting Media Award Decades of research have proven the value of reading aloud to children, and the years between birth and age two are arguably the most crucial for language development. As a parent, it's important that you help your baby acquire the foundation they need to speak earlier, read on their own sooner, and benefit from an increased vocabulary and attention span. Baby Read-Aloud Basics shows you how to establish an effective daily read-aloud routine to take charge of your baby's future understanding and success. Organized around the six stages of early language development from birth to age two, the book provides simple but effective techniques to help you: • Make reading aloud an interactive experience—from intonation and speech patterns to gesture • Select what to read aloud by looking at how much the text of the book repeats, whether it rhymes, and the types of interactive elements it incorporates. • Know when to read and how often in order to create a reading routine that’s both enjoyable and effective. • Ensure your baby gets the right amount of language from a nanny or a caretaker. • Effectively incorporate reading in a bilingual home. Filled with step-by-step instructions, scripted demonstrations, and a list of recommended titles, Baby Read-Aloud Basics gives you all the guidance and information you need to instill a lifelong love of reading and learning, and start your baby along on the road to success."

The first edition of BANK 2.0 took the financial services world by storm and became synonymous with disruptive customer behaviour, technology shift and new banking models. In BANK 3.0, Brett King looks at the latest trends that are redefining financial services and payments. From the global scramble for dominance of the mobile wallet, the expectations created by tablet computing, the operationalizing of the cloud and the explosion of social media he explores: • How Social Media has exposed pricing, over-regulation, outdated processes and poor policy, • How mobile technology is completely changing the context of banking, • How customer advocacy is killing traditional brand marketing, • The growth of the 'de-banked' consumer who doesn't need a bank at all; and • Why Banking is no longer a place you go, but something you do BANK 3.0 shows that the gap between customer and financial services players is rapidly growing, leaving massive opportunities for new, non-bank competitors to totally disrupt the industry.

"A lot has happened in the financial markets since 1992, when Peter Bernstein wrote his seminal Capital Ideas. Happily, Peter has taken up his facile pen again to describe these changes, a virtual revolution in the practice of investing that relies heavily on complex mathematics, derivatives, hedging, and hyperactive trading. This fine and eminently readable book is unlikely to be surpassed as the definitive chronicle of a truly historic era." ? J.C.B, founder of The Vanguard Group and author, The Little Book of Common Sense Investing "Just as Dante could not have understood or survived the perils of the Inferno without Virgil to guide him, investors today need Peter Bernstein to help find their way across dark and shifting ground. No one alive understands Wall Street?s intellectual history better, and that makes Bernstein our best and wisest guide to the future. He is the only person who could have written this book; thank goodness he did." ? Jason Zweig, Investing Columnist, Money magazine "Another must–read from Peter Bernstein! This well–written and thought–provoking book provides valuable insights on how key finance theories have evolved from their ivory tower formulation to profitable application by portfolio managers. This book will certainly be read with keen interest by, and undoubtedly influence, a wide range of participants in international finance." ? Dr. Mohamed A. El–Erian, President and CEO of Harvard Management Company, Deputy Treasurer of Harvard University, and member of the faculty of the Harvard Business School "Reading Capital Ideas Evolving is an experience not to be missed. Peter Bernstein?s knowledge of the principal characters–the giants in the development of investment theory and practice–brings this subject to life." ? Linda B. Strumpf, Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, The Ford Foundation "With great clarity, Peter Bernstein introduces us to the insights of investment giants, and explains how they transformed financial theory into portfolio practice. This is not just a tale of money and models; it is a fascinating and contemporary story about people and the power of their ideas." ? Elroy Dimson, BGI Professor of Investment Management, London Business School " Capital Ideas Evolving provides us with a unique appreciation for the pervasive impact that the theory of modern finance has had on the development of our capital markets. Peter Bernstein once again has produced a masterpiece that is must reading for practitioners, educators and students of finance." ? André F. Perold, Professor of Finance, Harvard Business School
