Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Hard Times Guide to Retirement Security aims to help baby-boomers with retirement planning. Author Mark Miller covers topics such as managing health-care costs and becoming a midlife entrepreneur." (Kiplinger's Retirement Report, August 2010).

"Miller is an expert on aging and retirement...it shows in his careful reporting on the ominous subject of retirement. He is diligent about listing detailed notes in each chapter to support facts and figures. He paints the picture: "Real estate values and retirement portfolios are depressed, and job security has evaporated...the need to build retirement security has never been greater." He offers ways to build long-term retirement security and boost knowledge on an array of topics from money issues, such as 401(k) plans and managing health care expenses to ways to navigate the 50-plus job market. There are several chapters on the 50-plus job market – how to find a job, start your own business, even how to hire a career coach to help with career transitions. Each chapter concludes with a wealth of resources and suggestions for further reading. The listings are ample guidance, worth keeping close at hand for help along the retirement route." (USA Today, July 25, 2010)
