Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent I am at a point in my life where I am extremely committed to investing and saving for my retirement. Of course, the TFSA is a new addition for us Canadians and I wanted to make sure that I really understood the concept and all the ins and outs of this plan. I wanted to make sure I got the best bang for my money. So, I went directly to the Canadian financial guru for my information and the Tax Free Savings Account book written by Gordon Pape is (as I knew it would be) the definite book on the subject. Pape, in his usual way, explains to all us layman the ins and outs of the TFSA account - documenting everything from its beginnings to implementation and more importantly, how the average person can best benefit from this new financial tool offered by the governement. As with any other investment tool, there are many different scenarios to cover and Papae does a wonderful job of explaining what is best - depending on your financial situation. He answered all of the questions I had and cleared up some ambiguity that I had towards some of the more intricate aspects of this plan. I like reading Pape's books because he manages to take something complicated and makes it easy to understand and easy to implement. This is not a large book - but it is loaded with valuable info.
