From the Publisher

Jim Cramer, host of CNBC's Mad Money and bestselling author and financial guru, offers specific advice about how to overcome your fear of the markets and put your investments back on track to recover from the financial debacle of 2008-2009.

You don't even look at your 401(k) statements any longer. When mail comes from your broker or your mutual fund, you throw it in a drawer unopened. You know how bad things are and you're just waiting for them to improve before you start thinking about your money again.

But how long will that take? How many opportunities will you miss while you hide your head in the sand? Shouldn't you be doing something?

Jim Cramer says that there are positive steps you can take to start the financial healing process. You can start to get back to even, then go from there. Cramer explains how to make the best of the bad situation you're in, and how not to succumb to fear and panic. He tell you what steps to take depending on your age and your financial goals. Getting Back to Even will include advice on refinancing a mortgage, recovering from job loss or downsizing, and making a new financial plan. It will include twenty new rules for investing that fit the current economic climate.

Jim Cramer believes that the stock market is still the best long-term investment anyone can make. He'll offer guidance on which stocks to select, or how to find a reliable and successful mutual-fund manager, and how to spot the economic recovery when it happens.

Whether you're 25 and investing to build wealth or 65 and hoping to restore your retirement savings, you'll need the advice Jim Cramer offers in Getting Back to Even.

We frequently fall into the trap of expending a great deal of energy for a small financial payoff. Here are some examples. Daily victories.

Chinese Buyers Move On From Vancouver

Katia Dmitrieva Just a few days after British Columbia announced a 15 percent tax on foreigners buying property in the Vancouver area, Seattle real estate broker Lili Shang received a WeChat message from a wealthy Chinese businessman who wanted to sell a home in Canada and buy one in her area. After a week of looking, he purchased a $1 million property in Bellevue, across Lake Washington from Seattle. He soon returned to buy two more, including a $2.2 million house in Clyde Hill paid for with a single cashier’s check. Shang says she’s been inundated with similar requests from China and Hong

SUCCESS 1 Grit The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth Why read 300-plus pages to learn that folks with grit—that is, “perseverance and passion for long-term goals”—are more likely to succeed than those who don’t? It’s a fair question: Isn’t that common sense? One answer is that Duckworth—a University of Pennsylvania psychologist, 2013 MacArthur “genius” fellow, and TED Talk superstar—brings a deeply persuasive level of intellectual rigor to her case. Indeed, her academic work has proved that grit counts far more than you probably think. Talent matters, she writes, “but
