Your financial goals probably include a comfortable retirement, paying for your kids' college education, and long-term healthcare. But you can't reach those goals by putting your money in a savings account. You need to invest it so it grows over time. Three seasoned personal finance experts show you how in this jargon-free guide.
Bonnie Biafore has always been a zealous planner, whether setting up software demos, cooking gourmet meals, or scheduling a vacation to test the waters of spontaneity. Ironically, fate, not planning, turned this obsession into a career as a project manager. When she isn't managing projects for clients, Bonnie writes about project management, small business accounting, personal finance, investing, and technology. She's also branching out into other "dry" topics with articles for the Wine Enthusiast. As an engineer, she's fascinated by how things work and how to make things work better. She has a knack for mincing dry subjects like accounting and project management into easy to understand morsels and then spices them to perfection with her warped sense of humor.
Bonnie is the award-winning author of more than a dozen books including Quicken 2009: The Missing Manual, QuickBooks 2009: The Missing Manual, Project 2007: The Missing Manual, the Better Investing Stock Selection Handbook (which won an APEX Award of Distinction), Online Investing Hacks, and On Time! On Track! On Target!. She also writes regularly about financial topics for Better Investing bankrate.com and interest.com. When unshackled from her computer, she hikes in the mountains, cycles, rehabilitates horses, cooks gourmet food, and, most importantly, tries saying no to additional work assignments.
Amy Buttell is a journalist who writes about personal finance, investing, healthcare and accounting. She got started writing about investing and personal finance when she realized she owned several mutual funds recommended by a broker and had no idea whether they were any good or what she needed. That event along with her insatiable curiosity landed her first assignment as mutual fund columnist for Better Investing magazine, a position she still holds today after nearly 10 years on the job.
She writes for Bankrate.com, Creditcards.com, the Journal of Financial Planning, AARP: The Magazine, The Investment Professional, and Cyberhomes.com. She is the author of The Better Investing Mutual Fund Handbook and contributed to the book, Online Investing Hacks. She lives in Erie, PA with her two sons and two cats in a house near Lake Erie

She has helped thousands learn to manage their money.

In 2009 she received the TIAW World of Difference award in recognition for her efforts to advance the economic empowerment of women.
