Lita Epstein excels at translating complex financial and political topics critical to people’s everyday lives. Building on her personal experience as a press secretary for a U.S. Congressman and her analytical skills developed as she completed her MBA from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School, Lita helps people explore difficult financial and political issues.

Currently, Lita focuses on business and personal finance books including Reading Financial Reports for Dummies, Trading for Dummies, Bookkeeping for Dummies, Complete Idiot's Guide to Accounting, Complete Idiot's Guide to Improving Your Credit Score and the Complete Idiot's Guide to Personal Bankruptcy. In addition she focuses on retirement issues including the Complete Idiot's Guide to Social Security and Medicare, the Pocket Idiot's Guide to Medicare Part D, and Working After Retirement for Dummies. Lita grew up in New Jersey, USA, as an Orthodox Jew, but her mother and aunts used Yiddish to discuss topics they didn’t want the children to hear. She learned Yiddish later in life.

Favourite books:

1. Shogun by James Clavell Wonderfully written. Helps the reader truly understand what It was like to live in Japan during that time period. I enjoy reading historical literature and this exemplifies one of the best.

2. Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset - another great historical novel that takes one back to what it was like to live in the fourteenth century in Norway.

3. The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov - I love to read science fiction and I think this trilogy is a true classic.
