    Gail MarksJarvis is an award-winning, nationally syndicated financial columnist for the Chicago Tribune, as well as a TV commentator, speaker, and author of the best-selling first edition of Saving for Retirement (Without Living Like a Pauper or Winning the Lottery).

    Her columns on the financial markets, the economy, and personal finance strategy run in the Chicago Tribune and reach millions of readers in leading newspapers throughout the country. She has been recognized with more than a dozen journalism awards, including Best Financial Columnist from Northwestern University’s Medill journalism school, a National Clarion Award for human rights reporting, and the 2012 Award of Excellence from the University of Minnesota School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

    The first edition of Saving for Retirement (Without Living Like a Pauper or Winning the Lottery) received widespread national media praise. Oprah Winfrey placed it on her select list, MSN Money highlighted it as one of “Eight Great New Books About Money,” and Kiplinger named it one of the “Great Money Books for Young Investors.”

    MarksJarvis delivers analysis and advice regularly on WGN-TV and radio, CLTV, and WTTW public television in Chicago. She has been a regular commentator for PBS’s Nightly Business Report and on National Public Radio, and has appeared on CNBC, PBS NewsHour, Fox Business, Talk of the Nation, and the CBS Early Show, as well as on NBC, CBS and ABC affiliates throughout the country.

    Formerly a reporter for public radio’s Marketplace program and USA Today, MarksJarvis serves on the board of directors of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, which sets ethical standards for business journalists. In speeches throughout the country, she simplifies the investing process so that regular Americans handle 401(k)s, IRAs, and 529 college plans successfully and without worry.

    Saving for Retirement will relieve confusion and barriers to action for Americans who are increasingly worried about retirement. The book removes everything from the readers’ path that typically trips people up and hits the sweet spot for everyone aged 18 to 60. Using new figures (including troubling new projections of healthcare and long-term care costs), Gail MarkJarvis helps readers calculate exactly how much money they’ll need and how to get there. She presents easy, proven investing strategies for anyone at any age that will transform pocket change into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Packed with her readers’ personal stories, this book teaches powerful professional financial planning principles — but makes them simple enough for anyone to apply on their own.
