Press & Praise
"Harris Nydick and Greg Makowski have provided the building blocks to plan and execute successfully for your retirement. Long before Common Financial Sense was written, Greg taught me that making small, informed changes immediately made big and positive differences in my situation. This guide delivers the most practical and straightforward tutorial I have ever read."
"Harris and Greg have many years' experience helping employees with their 401(k) accounts and have used that experience to write this very readable book. I wish I had access to this book earlier in my career! I promise to pay it forward by sending a copy of Common Financial Sense to each of my three twenty-something kids."
"Common Financial Sense is a breath of fresh air and should be required reading for everyone entering or in the workforce. Nydick and Makowski slice through the jargon and deliver a clear explanation of how to understand the value of the 401(k) plan so you can retire successfully. Their many years of teaching others have resulted in a brief, to-the-point book that delivers a valuable lesson that will last a lifetime."
