    Good Information for Starters

    Basic information for those who haven't given much thought to retirement. The author's view is valuable because, as a current retiree, he has experienced the issues first hand and has put them in a book. But most of the advice is elementary for those who keep up on general financial topics. Finances, on the other hand, is the furthest thing from my wife'd mind, and I know she will gain more from the book then I did. Written simply and very easy to read.
