I'm favorably impressed with this retirement guidebook. I learned several useful facts and strategies, which is uncommon since I'm a CPA and already know everything included in most basic retirement guidebooks. Yet this is not a technical read. Well, yes and no-- the main part of the book is a surprisingly easy read given the dull nature of the subject matter. But there are sidebars and parts of sections that are somewhat technical. There is a lot of math involved in deciding your optimum retirement plan, after all.

It's geared toward people retiring after age 60, but there's a lot of useful advice even if you plan on retiring early. And if you're close to retirement, it does have some decent advice about non-financial planning for handling the adjustment between work and retirement.

I recommend it for anyone, but I think it will be most relevant if you're age 45+.
