My new book, “Your Nest Egg Game Plan: How to Get Your Finances Back on Track and Create a Lifetime Income Stream,” was co-authored with Prof. Craig Israelsen of BYU. The book has been endorsed by Jane Bryant Quinn and Don Phillips of Morningstar. I think you’d be interested in the content and may want to consider it for a book review or a podcast with Craig or me. I’ve also recently launched a new consumer advocacy website where you can learn more about my background and approach to investing.

Please let me know if you’d like a complimentary copy of the book or would like to discuss any of this further.

Thank you.
Phil Fragasso
