Don has remained faithful to his moral compass taught to him as a young boy and man by a loving family. Although he has made a good deal of money in his life and has complete freedom to do what the damn hell he wants, he does not wear his success on his sleeve. This book is organized in such a way to allow you to read through it from the beginning, because it shows how sound planning can be incorporated into your everyday life experience. So, get this book, read it, put it down, come back again and read some more and keep it handy. Personally, I have not done the good job Don has done here with his retirement, but his good and positive attitude and outlook, still there after our high school days on the track team is a reminder that attitude, discipline, a sensed of humor can bring you success, even if your resources are not what you had planned for in retirement. This book should be shared with your children and friends as they look at their financial life. It is that good.
We did the old "compare and contrast" thing. What we found was the ideas and concepts here were pretty much right on. The contrast showed us we were on the money much of the time. Sometimes we made different decisions; however, those alternatives were listed. We also identified a couple of things to work on. Our conclusion from this was the the book is extremely credible and useful.
Another great thing about the book is that it goes beyond financial planning, although that is covered. Among the other things covered are defining what you want you retirement to be like, what to expect when you retire, relationships, and guidance about benefits and pitfalls of retirement. There is so much more; you will have to read the book to find out.
In summary, the book is written in understandable, concise language that is frequently humorous. In short it is readable. Examples and stories make it interesting. Bottom line, read the book now!
