BEND, OR--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2014) - Financial expert and extreme sports enthusiast David Rosell has published a new book, "Failure is NOT an Option," (, which integrates financial advice and travel and adventure.

"I parallel my love for mountain climbing with an individual's financial journey; climbing up the mountain is what we do while accumulating wealth during our working years, and descending the mountain is what we do during our spending/retirement years," says Rosell, CEO of Rosell Wealth Management.

"But the descent isn't necessarily the 'easy' part; most climbing accidents actually occur during the descent, and that is also often true, financially speaking, for retirees, too."

Charles R. Schwab, Jr. calls the book a "must read" for those at or near retirement.

" 'Failure Is Not an Option' provides a compass for making the most of the second half of your financial journey," he writes. "After reading David Rosell's book, you'll want to explore all that life has to offer."

The day you start taking money out of your portfolio and open the income valve to your 401(k) or IRA, all of the rules change, Rosell says. Not only are you no longer adding to your nest egg, you may need to make your money last for 25 to 40 years.

"I've read many of the 'classic' financial books and loved how this one was so engaging and NOT boring," writes Amazon reviewer Jodie B., who gave the book five stars. "Great stories and advice are woven throughout..."
