Like most people, you probably already know that you should be concerned about your financial future. You likely realize that your company pension isn¿t going to allow you to live a comfortable life. Possibly, you¿ve tucked away a little money in RRSPs, mutuals, or bonds. Maybe, most of your current paycheck is being spent long before it gets to the savings account. Wealth Odyssey is meant to guide the reader towards reasonable, realistic financial goals based upon his or her current income. I like that the author does not give a blanket amount for retirement based upon some sort of perceived norm. Instead, this book guides the reader in examining and calculating his or her own needs so that he or she can create a financial plan. Moreover, the author does so in a way that is easy to understand and more importantly in a way that is practical and easy to put into daily practice.

OUTSTANDING! To sum it up in ONE word. As somebody who is really ummmm, not smart financially, this has helped me get on track. I've already started using Mr. Franks information to start saving for the future and plan for retirment. You have just got to get this book. It's definetly worth the money!

I liked the discussion about using a person's own standard of living as a very good way to measure how much a person needs in retirement. This, combined with the Wealth Rule calculation, helped me determine when I could retire. I also liked learning how to factor into my retirement the question about how Social Security effects retirement (now that I know how to calculate what the book called SOIL) and how to easily calculate having all of Social Security, some of it, or none of it. I also liked how the book showed all the issues I face in planning and how they are all really interrelated and effect one another.
