"Want excellent insights on retirement planning from a professional who's actually experienced retirement himself? You'll get just that from Stan Hinden's book, How to Retire Happy , now in its third edition. Stan was a Washington Post financial reporter for 20 years, and after he retired, he wrote the Post 's 'Retirement Journal' column for which he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. What I like about Stan's book is that it combines good financial planning information with his story about his own retirement. He's candid about the mistakes he made and how he'd do things differently with the benefit of hindsight."
-- Steve Vernon, columnist,

"Everyone in the workforce today should read this book!"
--Horace B. Deets, former Executive Director, AARP

Very dated and little insight that would help anyone.

A very 'American' book, with large portions dedicated to IRAs, 401Ks, Medicade, Medigap, and numerous other areas that have absolutely no relevance to Canadian readers. The author worked into his late sixties for basically one employer, has a defined benefits pension plan, and saved/invested virtually nothing, because of his particular situation. Much better and more useful books are available for Canadian readers. Check out my recommended list if you require better local resource materials.
