It includes extensive lists of questions you should ask and services you should receive from an advisor, and reasons why the brokerage industry is not serving your best interests.

To ensure that you “Get Smart,” Paul helps you understand how to find and work with competent and ethical advisors, firms and products. Getting the best and most from your advisor will save you time, grow your money, and give you peace of mind. Whether you are a first-time or savvy investor, you will learn new ways to avoid the plethora of pitfalls many investors encounter.
