PRAISE FOR YOU DON′T HAVE TO DRIVE AN UBER IN RETIREMENT
"Here is a stimulating, common sense compendium of ideas and approaches to getting more income and shrewdly cutting expenses so that you can have a very nice life after retiring."
Steve Forbes, bestselling author, Chairman and Editor–In–Chief at Forbes Media
"The world has gone crazy. The middle class is deflating. Millennials are lost. And retirees can′t cash in their decades of hard work. I′ve known and admired Marc′s work for ten years. He solves the problem in this book."
James Altucher, bestselling author of Choose Yourself
"Bestselling author Marc Lichtenfeld has long been recognized as one of the nation′s foremost experts on maximizing investment income. In his new book, he not only reveals how to earn safe, high yields in a low–income world but also shows you how to save tens of thousands of dollars on everything from health care to taxes to investment advice. Whether you′re planning for retirement or already there, these innovative strategies are indispensable. Highly recommended."
Alexander Green, Chief Investment Strategist, The Oxford Club
"Marc Lichtenfeld should be on everyone′s investing book shelf. His first book on dividends should be as well. I read this latest book in two afternoons by the fire, and learned things about retirement I′d never dreamed possible. Filled with nuggets of wisdom and ideas for living a richer life, Lichtenfeld entertained me and probably added thousands to my bank accounts. Fantastic, easy to read, and will be my go to gift for friends and family in 2018!"
Dr. David Eifrig Jr., editor, Retirement Millionaire
"How do you organize your retirement finances so you don′t have to pinch every penny... or check under the seat cushions for quarters in order to buy a cup of coffee? And, don′t expect the government to rescue you from retirement poverty. Marc Lichtenfeld has been advising Americans on these things for 20 years, showing them how to add to their incomes and investment gains, while reducing their living costs. This may be the year you most need his advice."
Bill Bonner, New York Times bestselling author of Financial Reckoning Day, The New Empire of Debt and Hormegeddon
