Whether retirement is 20 years away or around the corner, saving one’s assets has become a number one priority in the current financial climate. According to a recent Wall Street Journal article ("Five Books to Retire By," Nov. 17, 2008), the most popular personal finance books published this year “are about preserving, rather than increasing one’s capital.”
Here’s a few you can get at the library:

Fast Profits in Hard Times: 10 Secret Strategies to Make You Rich in an Up or Down Economy by Jordan Goodman
