In years gone by many people worked for the same firm for most of their lives, and the firm automatically provided them with a good pension when they retired. Times are changing and now everyone, even the relatively young, needs a basic knowledge of pensions so that they can plan for their own retirement.
This excellent book is a very readable introduction to pensions. You can read it from cover to cover, as I did, or just select topics you are particularly interested in. You don't need any prior knowledge.
