Very basic information

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you are a regular reader to a publication such as Money Magazine or Kiplinger's, this book is not for you. Very basic information that if you already read other sources. However, if you have not read anything on retirement and benefits, I suggest you get a subscription to Money Magazine instead of buying this book. Make sure you review the table of contents before purchasing.
