DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

OVER 250,000 COPIES IN PRINT, WITH A NEW CHAPTER ON THE 2018 TAX CUTS. There's a massive freight train bearing down on the average American investor, and it's coming in the form of higher taxes. The United States Government has made trillions of dollars in unfunded promises for programs like Social Security and Medicare—and the only way to deliver on these promises is to raise taxes. Some experts have even suggested that tax rates will need to double, just to keep our country solvent. Unfortunately, if you're like most Americans, you've saved the majority of your retirement assets in tax-deferred vehicles like 401(k)s and IRAs. If tax rates go up, how much of your hard-earned money will you really get to keep? In The Power of Zero, McKnight provides a concise, step-by-step roadmap on how to get to the 0% tax bracket by the time you retire, effectively eliminating tax rate risk from your retirement picture. Now, in this expanded edition, McKnight has updated the book with a new chapter on the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, showing readers how to navigate the new tax law in its first year of being in effect, and how they can extend the life of their retirement savings by taking advantage of it now. The day of reckoning is fast approaching. Are you ready to do what it takes to experience the power of zero?

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The follow-up to the bestselling The Power of Zero, providing a blueprint to build a guaranteed, tax-free income stream that lasts for the long run. American retirees face a looming crisis. We are living longer than ever before, and most experts predict a dramatic rise in tax rates within the next ten years. The hard truth is that no matter how much you save, you are likely to outlive your money or watch it be taxed into oblivion. But when traditional retirement distribution strategies won't provide sufficient income in the face of higher taxes, what can you do? Tax-Free Income for Life lays out a comprehensive, step-by-step roadmap for a secure retirement. McKnight shows how the combination of guaranteed, inflation-adjusted lifetime income and a proactive asset-shifting strategy can shield you from longevity risk and the cascade of unintended consequences that result from higher taxes. It's an innovative and proven strategy that maximizes return while effectively neutralizing the two biggest risks to retirement savings. If ever there were a solution for the American retiree, it's guaranteed tax-free income for life.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER If you want to build a better future, you must believe in secrets. The great secret of our time is that there are still uncharted frontiers to explore and new inventions to create. In Zero to One, legendary entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shows how we can find singular ways to create those new things. Thiel begins with the contrarian premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we’re too distracted by shiny mobile devices to notice. Information technology has improved rapidly, but there is no reason why progress should be limited to computers or Silicon Valley. Progress can be achieved in any industry or area of business. It comes from the most important skill that every leader must master: learning to think for yourself. Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique. Zero to One presents at once an optimistic view of the future of progress in America and a new way of thinking about innovation: it starts by learning to ask the questions that lead you to find value in unexpected places.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From two influential and visionary thinkers comes a big idea that is changing the way movements catch fire and ideas spread in our highly connected world. For the vast majority of human history, power has been held by the few. "Old power" is closed, inaccessible, and leader-driven. Once gained, it is jealously guarded, and the powerful spend it carefully, like currency. But the technological revolution of the past two decades has made possible a new form of power, one that operates differently, like a current. "New power" is made by many; it is open, participatory, often leaderless, and peer-driven. Like water or electricity, it is most forceful when it surges. The goal with new power is not to hoard it, but to channel it. New power is behind the rise of participatory communities like Facebook and YouTube, sharing services like Uber and Airbnb, and rapid-fire social movements like Brexit and #BlackLivesMatter. It explains the unlikely success of Barack Obama's 2008 campaign and the unlikelier victory of Donald Trump in 2016. And it gives ISIS its power to propagate its brand and distribute its violence. Even old power institutions like the Papacy, NASA, and LEGO have tapped into the strength of the crowd to stage improbable reinventions. In New Power, the business leaders/social visionaries Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms provide the tools for using new power to successfully spread an idea or lead a movement in the twenty-first century. Drawing on examples from business, politics, and social justice, they explain the new world we live in--a world where connectivity has made change shocking and swift and a world in which everyone expects to participate.

Eighteen years later, Ted's stepson and financial power of attorney Jack Wheeler is called into town to sort out Ted's finances after Ted suffers a major health crisis. Confident that Ted still has millions in his stock market portfolio, Jack makes plans to place him in the best long-term care facility in town. But after examining Ted's investment statements, he makes a shocking discovery: Over $5 million is missing from Ted's portfolio.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

All the talk of closing the achievement gap in schools obscures a more fundamental issue: do the grades we assign to students truly reflect the extent of their learning? In this lively and eye-opening book, educator Myron Dueck reveals how many of the assessment policies that teachers adopt can actually prove detrimental to student motivation and achievement and shows how we can tailor policies to address what really matters: student understanding of content. In sharing lessons, anecdotes, and cautionary tales from his own experiences revamping assessment procedures in the classroom, Dueck offers a variety of practical strategies for ensuring that grades measure what students know without punishing them for factors outside their control; critically examining the fairness and effectiveness of grading homework assignments; designing and distributing unit plans that make assessment criteria crystal-clear to students; creating a flexible and modular retesting system so that students can improve their scores on individual sections of important tests. Grading Smarter, Not Harder is brimming with reproducible forms, templates, and real-life examples of grading solutions developed to allow students every opportunity to demonstrate their learning. Written with abundant humor and heart, this book is a must-read for all teachers who want their grades to contribute to, rather than hinder, their students' success.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Fully UPDATED for 2018 and the NEW TAX LAW. Mark J. Orr has been a practicing Certified Financial Planner(tm) (CFP(r)) since July 2000 for clients across the country and has also earned the RICP(r) designation (Retirement Income Certified Professional). His financial planning practice is centered on the firm beliefs that 1) people should not pay a dime more in taxes that the law requires... 2) nor should they take an ounce more risk than they need to in order to reach their financial goals. Get Me to ZERO(tm) describes seven synergistic tax strategies to help Americans legally get their future assets and cash-flow off the IRS's radar screen and pay as little as ZERO income taxes during retirement - while simultaneously slashing their investment risks. This book fully explains how implementing these proven tax strategies can offer up to 20%-40% more spendable retirement income than traditional 401Ks, TSPs, 403Bs and IRAs. Judge Learned Hand said, "Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands". That, in a nutshell is the legal basis for the Get Me to ZERO(tm) strategy - proactively and systematically arranging our financial affairs so that our future income taxes will be as low as possible. The whole aim of the Get Me to ZERO(tm) strategy is to make as much of your retirement cash-flow legally "invisible" to the IRS using the full tax code. And the more sources of "invisible" retirement cash-flow - the better. This book is not about tax loopholes! Author Tom Wheelwright, CPA says, "After all, the tax law is really a map - a treasure map. As you follow this map, your taxes go down". If we can't eliminate future income taxes in retirement, we at least want to minimize them by becoming fully informed and proactively using the tax code as it is written and intended. Using the letter and the spirit of our current and longstanding tax laws for future legal "tax avoidance"... NOT "tax evasion" is simply being tax savvy. Whose retirement are you planning for, YOURS... OR Uncle Sams? Wall Street doesn't like the TRIPLE ZERO(tm) plan at all, nor they have embraced ROTH conversions (or even ROTH contributions). Why doesn't Wall Street like ROTH conversions? Because when you convert a traditional IRA to a ROTH, income taxes get paid to the IRS and perhaps your state. That reduces the amount left that Wall Street (your broker or advisor) can make money on (fees and commissions). ROTH conversions give them a 20%-45% pay cut! Showing people how to implement a holistic and comprehensive planning approach that employs several diverse strategies to help people become more financially confident and secure today, while preparing for an extraordinary retirement is the primary goal of this book. Does your current retirement planning include future income tax planning? Do you have a tax-savvy exit strategy for your traditional retirement investments, so you can spend and enjoy more of your hard-earned savings... and pay the IRS less? A quick look at the Table of Contents and reading the first few pages ought to give you a good idea if this book should be on your reading list. It certainly should be if you would like to reduce your taxes in retirement to the lowest amount allowed by law, avoid taxation of your Social Security and enhance you're your overall financial position both today and tomorrow. Pay the IRS less. Keep more and have a better life!
