A useful and practical guide to an informed investment

Co-written by recognized bond adviser and financial author Hildy Richelson and fee-only financial planner, attorney and coach Stan Richelson, The Money-Making Guide To Bonds: Straightforward Strategies For Picking The Right Bonds And Bond Funds is a useful and practical guide to an informed investment in the bond market. Presented in a direct, no-nonsense tone which is thoroughly accessible to readers of all financial backgrounds, the individual chapters discuss over 35 different types of bonds in detail, complete with their specific advantages and disadvantages, as well as tax issues, ways to protect oneself from risks, how to make the best use of online resources, and more. Though The Money-Making Guide To Bonds cannot replace professional advice or judgement, it is a "must-read" for non-specialist general readers seeking familiarize themselves with the complex bond market before seeing a financial expert who bills by the hour.

Fun reading, great reference

This book is a great roadmap through the daunting maze of bonds available in today's market. My favorite parts were: *the detailed comparison of major categories of bonds, pointing out their advantages and disadvantages; *the "Richelson Investment Rules" (7 guidelines to help you think through your personal asset allocations and strategies); and *the final chapter suggesting specific strategies to consider in a variety of situations (like "strategies when interest rates are low or falling," and "strategies for keeping taxes low after retirement.") The book is interesting and upbeat reading, and it's so well-organized I expect to refer to it to review information and suggestions again and again.
