That’s Bob Walker on the cover of his new book, How Am I EVER Going to Retire?

If you’re in the investment business and have had – or have – to pass the Series 6, 7, 63, 65, or 66, you may know who Bob is.

He’s the owner of Pass The Test, Inc., the Chicago-based company who produces books, practice exams, and audio CD’s to help pass these tests.

And he does so in the most effective matter possible – in plain English. A result, no doubt, of his background as a teacher with a Fine Arts Masters Degree in Creative Writing from the University of Oregon.

Bob has now turned his attention beyond the investment industry. His book, How Am I EVER Going to Retire?, available in a Kindle edition from Amazon, is directed towards the individual who has either not started investing yet, or is a participant in his company’s 401(k) plan that he doesn’t understand or may not even participate in.

In an understandable, easy to read manner, Bob explains the essentials:

  1. Types of Investments
  2. Mutual Funds
  3. Types of Accounts
  4. Annuities
  5. Investment Approaches
  6. The Investment Industry
  7. The Regulators
  8. Don’t Get Took
  9. More Types of Investments
  10. Defense Wins the Game

It may be the best $5.99 investment someone who needs to get started saving for retirement can make.
