FAIRFAX, Va., July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ric Edelman's re-release of his #1 national bestseller tells readers what they need to know about investing in today's tumultuous times. Originally published in 2009 to help people recover from the 2008 Credit Crisis, Edelman has fully revised and updated the book to reflect the economic conditions that Americans are facing right now.
Edelman, a #1 New York Times bestselling author and Founder & Executive Chairman of Edelman Financial Services, recognizes that millions of Americans collectively lost trillions of dollars during the last recession and many gave up hope of building a secure financial future for themselves and their families.
"Although the Credit Crisis is long gone, its remnants are still felt by millions of people," said Edelman. "While the core advice I've written in Rescue Your Money hasn't changed, the data in the book has been fully updated and revised, making it as valuable today as it was when I first wrote it seven years ago."
Easily read in a single sitting, the book explains what causes investors to make poor investment decisions. With blunt commentary about market timing, fads, media pundits, and hot sectors, Rescue Your Money will help readers avoid the mistakes others have made.
Edelman Financial Services is also launching a new Rescue Your Money seminar, presented in locations around the country by Edelman's Financial Education Team, all of whom were trained by Edelman himself. The seminar reveals how to make sound investment decisions to help participants achieve their financial goals. Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the book at the seminar. Further details are available here.
Rescue Your Money is available in bookstores and on Amazon. For a review copy or to arrange an interview, contact Liz Dougherty at (703) 991-1695.

1According to Barron's, "The formula [used] to rank advisors has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of the advisor's practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor's returns are dictated largely by each client's risk tolerance. The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor's regulatory record." The rankings are based on the universe of applications submitted to Barron's. The selection process begins with a nomination and application provided to Barron's. Principals of Edelman Financial Services, LLC self-nominated the firm and submitted quantitative and qualitative information to Barron's as requested. Barron's reviewed and considered this information which resulted in the rankings on Aug. 27, 2012/Aug. 28, 2010/Aug. 31, 2009.
