Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Eisenberg] has a deft way of making abstract financial principles both personal and funny. His book will definitely make you think about where you're going and why."
-- MoneySense

"[Eisenberg's] tips are timely for millions of baby boomers who are hurtling toward retirement with little sense of what they want from it or how they'll get along once they no longer bring home a paycheck."
-- Hartford Courant

"Today's hottest personal finance book is Lee Eisenberg's The Number...read The Number, think about the Number."
-- Dallas Morning News

"An important book, one that illuminates the appalling mistakes that many baby boomers are making as they approach later life."
-- Wall Street Journal
