James William Schwarz is a survivor. He survived a number of illnesses—including cancer— and the daily grind and peril of the corporate world. In his new book, “Your Shadow On the Floor”, he shares experience and time-tested insights and inspiration for prevailing over the battlefields of today’s economic climate.

Before getting to his present profession as a senior software developer for a large computer company, Schwarz held a colorful range of odd jobs. Among others, he worked as a paperboy, busboy, technician for a hospital and taxi driver. “I can look the world in eye,” he proudly declares. Schwarz’s life also had its share of obstacles and these ultimately taught him one important thing: life is not fair but the sooner one gets it, the better. In “Your Shadow On the Floor”, Schwarz created an invaluable guidebook for thriving in today’s business climate, particularly in the area of investment. He says,

“There is hope and enjoyment derived from investing… As the title says, today more than ever, sometimes the only thing behind you is your shadow on the floor. The good news is this is the time to take responsibility and become empowered to build your future safely, slowly, and consistently.”

What makes Schwarz’s work unique is that it is written with a conversational tone making it comprehensible and easy to follow. Both the young and old will find this book handy for confronting the tricky task of managing and meeting their investment needs. It also serves to equip and encourage novice investors in their journey through the tricky world of risks and rewards. A powerful and compelling tool, “Your Shadow On the Floor” paves the way to a life of wealth and happiness.
