    Stunning and insightful

    As my 45th birthday approached I thought it was a good time to assess my finances. A friend recommended Fisher and Shelly's book as a good place to get the basics. I was stunned. I never realised how little I understood about excess credit debt. I'm grateful for their insights. I now have a plan to make it to retirement.

    This book has it all

    Mid life can be very daunting...many of us are planning on college and weddings for the kids, trying to decide where to invest savings, selling a home to move into something smaller, etc. This book covers it all in an easy to understand format. One-stop shopping to help you with your finances at a busy time of life. Mid life is difficult enough....this book just made it easier.
