12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 5 April 2006
Format: Hardcover
This financial and life-planning book wraps basic fiscal planning information around the timely mantra, "The Number" - the amount of savings you need to retire. The first 75% of the book offers retirement basics, including a selection of insights from financial planners. Throughout, it reads well, in a breezy magazine style, no surprise given author Lee Eisenberg's illustrious career at Esquire. But be patient: the richest meat of the book is near the end where he gets more specific about how much money you need to retire, and how to live both well and purposefully. The book's suggestions about how big a nest egg you must hatch to live well during retirement are mostly directed at those who are already pretty comfy. Eisenberg also offers insights on purposeful living, "a completely different way to think about the rest of your life." We find that financially savvy readers can skim the fiscal advice, while those who are unfamiliar with retirement financial planning could read it more slowly (though not as the last word on the subject). While you are pondering feathering your nest for the long term, you may want to give more attention to Eisenberg's thoughts on purpose than to his thoughts on payoffs.

Most of the examples in this book are fine if you are a citizen of the USA but not if you live in the UK.
Some useful stuff at the end re planning for retirement and achieving your number but you can skip the rest.

An accessible, enjoyable read. But my real point is this book was entirely instrumental in my understanding, and giving serious thought to planning, what I needed for my retirement. Having previously sat through numerous meetings & presentation on the subject, seen reams of relevant industry literature and much else besides, this book actually connected for me. Maybe it will for you.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on 16 Oct. 2010
Format: Paperback
The message of this book is important to everybody. It describes how much money is needed to live the lifestyle you want or the amount of money you need to retire. As a certified financial planner I fully agree with the message.

Unfortunately the book itself repeats the same again and again. Its a pity it was not written in a different style. In the end I was quite bored so I just read the most important parts.

Not the book I was lead to expect. As far as I was concerned it didn't deal with the issues confronting the ordinary man.
