Average Goodreads Rating: 4.25
Before we get into what I think, here's the summary from Goodreads:
RetirementQuest: Make Better Decisions was written by a
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER practitioner who has been counseling
clients since 1992. Drawing from his twenty years of experience, John Hauserman has developed a unique ability to communicate complex
financial subject matter in easy to understand terms. Readers are guided through the basics of financial planning, while threads of politics, history,
and psychology are woven together to create a tapestry of deeper understanding into the financial planning world. Complete with hard
hitting insight into the practices and sometimes abuses of the
financial services industry, John has created a masterpiece designed
to help those responsible-minded investors who are seeking to avoid
common planning mistakes.
Disclosure: I know nothing about economics or finance, because I'm a college student studying journalism and English. As far as I know, the things presented in this book sounded like good ideas; however, I personally knew nothing about the retirement process before reading this book
My Rating: I never know how to rate non-fiction. But I'll give this a 4, because it was informative, not boring, and put things in terms anybody could understand.
My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: Like I said in the disclosure, I am not an economics major and I really don't understand much about the retirement process. However, that was one thing I really loved about this book. I didn't feel like I needed to have an extensive background about economics/finance/retirement to understand what he was saying.
The book was very user-friendly and was one that I would find helpful if I were retiring. This book was an informative read, but it wasn't boring. I felt myself learning new things in a manner that I could understand and enjoy.
I didn't feel like the book was over my head. His writing was easy to follow and his advice (as far as I could tell) was solid. I think the steps he outlines in his book is bound to make anybody's process through Retirement much easier. It was easy to follow and I appreciated that.
In Summary: A very detailed book about Retirement, but one that was easy to follow and easy to understand.
The Wrap-up: Like I mentioned, I received this for review from Tristi Pinkston. She's an author who sets up these blogs tours. Thanks! This book is part of one of those tears. Great book that I recommend for those thinking about retirement.
