There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But what the authors *do* with it will not surprise anyone who is smart. They spent many pages going down the basics of compounding interest and retirement. If you're the type who needs to have this worked out for you, you may enjoy this book. Compounding interest is fundamental to how I see the world, and this section was a huge bore.
The authors then proceeded to talk about planning a life for a century. What they said would surprise no one who reads the news. They talk about the disappearance of factory labor, population inversion and pensions, the growth of service industry, etc. The basic groupthink of today. They project out into the next 10 or so years using, again, the groupthink of the day. Nothing was really surprising or interesting here. So I stopped reading it.
I always read reviews with an eye of how a smart/educated person may like a book, I was genuinely mislead by the reviews I read thinking that I would get something new/interesting from this book. But I didn't. I hope my review will help some folks. I do think many people will enjoy this book, but not people like me.
It is not a scholarly work, nor is it properly "self-help," but it has given me plenty to consider, and to discuss with my cohort and the younger members of my family. Not every chapter will be of interest to every reader, and if you've sat on a pension board or are an actuary several of the explanatory portions can be skipped, but for most readers most of it will be thought-provoking indeed. And relevant to many aspects of their lives.
just may be able to achieve my goa!. I am a reader with about 4 or 5 kindles which I keep charged up at all times. I rarely watch TV, getting my news about politics. national and international news on my kindle. There are lots of things I will willingly give up but not one on of my kindles. I read the New York Times , the Washington Post and a couples others daily. only one complaint please a few fewer stories of DT. Other than that, keep up the good work. Joan Draper.
One of the majors issues with the book is that the authors try to present an economic model full of assumptions. The model works well for the book but given the macro nature of the topic, readers might feel put off.
Also, as other have pointed out here, the authors are a bit too optimistic on the quality of life people over 70 enjoy/will enjoy.
Nevertheless, the book has some valuable advice for young and old.
Really enjoyed the Assets model analysis and the end of the education-work-retirement model pieces.
