You Can Do It! The Boomer's Guide to a Great Retirement teaches you not to be scared by the media and the financial industry, which have a vested interest in convincing all those who don't have a seven-figure income or a family trust fund that they're woefully underprepared for retirement. In You Can Do It!, Jonathan Pond, the man who's been called "America's financial planner," shows how anyone can have a financially safe, happy, and comfortable retirement in this comprehensive and easy-to-use guide.

Packed with practical wisdom on how to save, understanding the key elements of investing, managing your expenses, and much more, You Can Do It! features Jonathan's famous and distinctively ebullient voice. So whether you're worried about getting a late start, skyrocketing health-care expenses, or the difficulty of paying for a college education, You Can Do It! will show you—in straightforward, easy-to-implement ways—how you too can make sure your retirement is fun and financially secure.

Stay tuned at 9:30 p.m. for Grow Your Money!: 101 Easy Tips to Plan, Save, and Invest.

In Grow Your Money Jonathan unpacks the best of his decades of financial advice to create a cornerstone compendium.

The program includes: using debt to your advantage, why collecting Social Security early is (usually) a mistake, dual-income homes: does that second paycheck help as much as you think?, getting rich slowly, and give Uncle Sam his due at tax time—but not one penny more. Whether you're working on your third million—or your third year out of college—take advantage of this all-time best collection of financial tools and tips from one of America's most-loved money managers and advisers.
