Taking the law into your own hands isn't a very good
idea: ask Cool Hand Luke. However, taking your RRSPs into your own
hands is not such a bad idea. S.E. Woods has written a book that is
industry wide proof that RRSPs don't have to be out of the owner's
sight to perform. Self-Directed RRSPs: Straight Talk on Making
Them Pay Off for You - 2nd Edition is an expanded and improved
version of Woods' original classic. Don't touch your RRSPs without
this wonderful resource.
