In 1981, at the age of 29 the author began living off his investments of just several hundred thousand dollars. In the intervening years he has made more than $5 million in investment profits. Edmunds was not an investment advisor or a commissioned mutual fund sales representative: he was a financial journalist and an individual investor.

How to Retire Early and Live Well with Less than a Million Dollars describes step by step how a retiree can live comfortably on $500,000 or less. Americans will discover that they can walk away from their job today and 15 million more will discover they can walk away from work in less than five years.

This is the first book to tackle these topics that is written by an actual retiree. Using simple, original investment strategies and formulas, the book shows how to assemble your nest egg and achieve steady, tax-advantaged returns every year for the rest of your life.
