Jonathan Pond. America's financial planner.

When approached about writing this ActiveBook edition, Jonathan Pond was thrilled to bring his expertise to interactive software.

As one of America's most respected advisors, Pond's insights have appeared nationally in nine books, regular columns in Cosmopolitan and Newsweek, the radio program "Your Money with Jonathan Pond" and more than 300 television appearances during the last three years.

Pond's entertaining perspective makes him a popular speaker as well, and he addresses more than 80 groups a year.

He's currently president of Financial Planning Information, Inc., where he advises individuals and organizations alike. And while he jokingly warns to "never take financial responsibility for anything that eats," Pond breaks his rule by living near Boston with his wife, two daughters and one slothful dog.
