Publisher's Summary

With How to Make Your Money Last, you will learn how to turn your retirement savings into a steady paycheck that will last for life.
Today people worry that they're going to run out of money in their older age. That won't happen if you use a few tricks for squeezing higher payments from your assets - from your Social Security account (find the hidden values there), pension (monthly income or lump sum?), home equity (sell and invest the proceeds or take a reverse mortgage?), savings (should you buy a lifetime annuity?), and retirement accounts (how to invest and - critically - how much to withdraw from your savings each year). The right moves will not only raise the amount you have to spend; they'll stretch out your money over many more years.
You will also learn to look at your savings and investments in a new way. If you stick with super-safe choices, the money might not last. You need safe money to help pay the bills in your early retirement years. But to ensure that you'll still have spending money 10 and 20 years from now, you have to invest for growth today. Quinn shows you how. At a time when people are living longer yet retiring with smaller pots of savings than they'd hoped for, this book will become the essential guide.

This is for someone a few years from retirement.

This book goes into grew detail about non financial things like life style changes. It also goes into great detail about decisions that one makes while transitioning into retirement. If you are planning finances for a future retirement get Tony Robins book about mastering money.

Core of entire book could be done in one hour

I download it and listen to this book after reading an excerpt that was in a recent money magazine the money magazine article was only about four or five pages but it very successfully captured the course suggestions of the entire book as a result I found the book ridiculously long to make just a few key points
