Hi Fools,
I'm looking for a recommendation on reading material for my recently retired father. He doesnt have a computer to follow TMF online. Also, this is mainly for managing his tax deferred accounts which do not have to be touched for 5+ years. I would like him to consolidate them and take control.

Without actually knowing it he has led a pretty Foolish life. So the early Fool school advice is not needed here. I have followed TMF online for over 2 years, but havent read the books. Is there a particular book which would be good to send him? Or maybe I should just print select articles from the retirement area?

Here's a little background of why I am making this request. He recently mentioned that he had some 401k money in an international fund. The Plan's mgmt decided to remove this fund from the choices and transferred the balances into a fixed income fund. After doing so, the Int. fund went up substantially in a few months (I think over 40%)!

Ya know, I'm just not in favor of doing your own asset allocation and then having someone else change it... JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN!

Thanks,
Frank

Greetings, Frank, and welcome. You asked:

<<Is there a particular book which would be good to send him? Or maybe I should just print select articles from the retirement area? >>

IMHO you can't go wrong with any or all of the first 10 investment book choices in the FoolMart found on this page:
