I've always heard its recommended for individuals to invest as much as one can afford into their 401k. So over the last 15 years I have done just that. Maximum contributions and my 401k has faired pretty well.

About a year ago I remember reading a short article in the Motley Fool's daily download and why not to invest in a 401k. The idea peaked my interest, but I was unable to locate the same article on the MF site.

Can anyone recommend books or websites which may have information regarding the pros/cons of 401k contributions especially during the later stages of one's career.

Thanks,

Bob
