The Ten Truths of Wealth Creation
Investment pioneer John E. Girouard exposes how the investment industry (Wall Street, mutual fund companies, banks with CDs, online trading houses, and so on) offer investors hope, but not much more. Misleading statistics and hidden conflicts of interest are common and help rob people of opportunities to create wealth and achieve financial independence, however one defines it. The solution, he shows, is to always invest in things you own, including old-fashioned participating whole life insurance. Girouard mathematically and entertainingly explodes a series of myths, proving, for example, that it can cost more to pay cash for a car than to finance it and invest the money elsewhere. He shows how people can become their own banks, pay themselves interest, earn untaxed income, stop paying taxes on income that's already been taxed before, all without taking excessive risks. The Ten Truths are the basic rules Girouard has learned over a quarter-century showing thousands of clients how investment industry hype and practices rob people of their money goals, and how financial peace of mind can be achieved with less confusion and worry. Wealth Creation Truth No. 10: Minimize future decisions. Girouard challenges us to rethink our relationship with money, and to remember that wealth should serve life, not the other way around.
Good Press for a Great Book!

I'm glad to see that so many other readers are as enthused as I am about John Girouard's Ten Truths of Wealth Creation--a clear-cut and inspiring guide to getting the most out of your financial assets. I was convinced to purchase a copy of the book after reading a positive review that was published recently in a lifestyle magazine in my area called 'Bucks County Living.'
Here's some of what the reviewer, J. Henry Warren,* had to say:
"...[This] book, though published a few years ago, is still relevant. It could have saved millions of people hundreds of thousands of dollars during this last economic meltdown. The book: The Ten Truths of Wealth Creation, by John E. Girouard, is for the most part a fast and easy read and worthy of the extra caffeine consumed when I stayed up late blasting through his easy to understand pages, damn, I should've known this last year.
If I had used these strategies a year and a half ago I would be a decade closer to... read more
The Ten Truths of Wealth Creation

As a retired person, I am concerned about making our nest egg last both our lifetimes. The Ten Truths Of Wealth Creation is beautifully written and has chapter after chapter of easy to understand financial and quality of life information. Chapters covering the risks of Index funds, your own personal bank, real estate and making sense of insurance, particularly hit home with me. This book is excellent for those just starting out in life and also for retired persons like me. I wish I had a text like this before I retired; it would have saved me a lot of money and emotional turmoil. I have already started taking Mr. Girourd's advice. I highly recommend the book.

This book is an eye opening experience. Every person planning for retirement should read this book. Girouard's lessons are easy to read and he makes complicated concepts simple to understand. His ideas are not what I have learned in school, instead, they are much more "real world" friendly. Thanks, for writing this book!
