And much more!

It is 76 pages of hard-hitting information. This is a “plain talk” explanation that doesn’t require a lot of tax knowledge, but will help you avoid unexpected tax traps.

Listen to Michael Gray's interview on Dresser After Dark on the topic of Roth and traditional IRAs:

The cover price is $29.97, but through our website, you can purchase the book for 25% off.

"Finally a book on IRAs anyone can understand!"

- Ron LeGrand
Real Estate teacher and Millionaire maker

"The world of retirement accounts can be complex and mysterious to the average investor or retirement saver. This work by Michael Gray simplifies much of the jargon and complex rules. As such, the typical consumer can learn and take advantage of the positive aspects of savings vehicles, in particular, the Roth IRA that is probably the best U.S. savings vehicle ever created."
