This book should be ranked as one of the very best books on the subject of financial preparation for retirement. The author not only systematically addresses each issue (social security, medicare, pensions, IRAs, expenses and spending strategies, investment strategies, ...) and identifies when decisions need to be made by someone preparing to retire (or already retired), he also provides helpful and innovative guidance that addresses the general and somewhat common specialized situations. The advice given is sound, backed by research, and in some cases counter intuitive. My only complaint about the book is that the few equations are provided in word format. It would have been clearer if a more mathematical form would have been provided.
