In her newest book, popular TV personality and recognized expert on personal finance Orman (The Nine Steps to Financial Freedom) points out that it’s never too late to plan for retirement. Starting with the adage that “the only way to conquer fear is through action,” the author lays out strategies, dos, don’ts, and challenges to secure a happy and healthy retirement. She covers everything from where to live, how to help loved ones, how and where to invest, and how to pay oneself during retirement. As readers might expect, she advises them to embrace living below their means, prioritize paying off debt, and create a will, financial power of attorney, and other important end-of-life documents. Of particular help during the current financial climate are tips on how to cope with a bear market in retirement.
VERDICT Recommended reading for all and a solid addition to public library offerings.
