Well written with well-divided chapters, this book is a great reference for women of all ages. Despite the title, the basic principles also apply to men as well. From saving for the future to paying off debt, this book gives plenty of tips. What's great is that several financial options and perspectives are given so the reader can pick what works best for them. Additionally, there is glossary in the back for financial terms that will come in handy. There are plenty of referenced websites, banks, and financial institutions. While this book is not too technically deep, there are some formulas and tables thrown in. This is a quick reference that will make saving for retirement seem manageable and not daunting.

Mary Hunt in her new book, “The Smart Woman’s Guide To Planning For Retirement” published by Revell shows us How to Save for Your Future Today.

What do you want to do when you retire? Travel? Pursue hobbies? Spend time with friends and family? If you want to turn those dreams into reality, you need a plan. If you’re not sure where to start, you need personal financial expert Mary Hunt.
With her signature no-nonsense, energetic style, Mary clearly covers every aspect of retirement planning during every season of your life–all in language you can understand. Whether you’re staring retirement in the face or you have decades of work ahead of you, Mary offers sound advice on everything from savings and investment to debt reduction and Social Security.
Let us face the truth. According to a 2012 survey, 92 percent of women of all ages in this country don’t feel they’re educated enough to reach their retirement savings goals. Not only is that a staggering statistic it is also frightening. It is time to provide a tool for women to use to plan for and manage retirement. Mary Hunt has done exactly that with “The Smart Woman’s Guide To Planning For Retirement”. In twenty chapters Ms. Hunt outlines the plans that we need to implement such as pay off debt, save an emergency fund, pay cash and not charge and then goes one step further. Chapter sixteen’s title is “Popular Ways To Commit Financial Suicide”. If you think you ever will want to retire and actually enjoy your retirement then you need to read this book. ”The Smart Woman’s Guide To Planning For Retirement” is a must have book. You might want to hold it in a special place on your shelf you might be referring to it again and again. This is also a great book to give as gifts to family and friends. They will think of you every time they put it to use. I recommend it highly.
