Retirement planning isn't something that happens at a specific point in time or at a specific age - we are all affecting our retirement plans every day with every decision we do or don't make. Canadians are living longer, and the average retiree in the future may have as much as 30 years of retirement to plan for, and there are many simple things that will impact our eventual retirement life.

52 Ways to Wreck Your Retirement identifies 52 things we do that could wreck our retirement, explains why it puts your retirement at risk, and provides the strategy to correct the mistake, or better still, avoid it entirely. The book is organized under several key areas of the planning process, including:

Starting to Plan for Retirement Mistakes around Investing Mistakes around Debt Saving for Retirement Pensions Living in Retirement Spending in Retirement New Realities about Retirement

52 Ways to Wreck Your Retirement is not a feel-good book about how wonderful retirement will be or an alarming fear-mongering book about dying broke, nor is it a get-rich-late-retirement solution. Quite simply, it is an easily-accessible and practical guide written for Canadians of all ages that gives you the tools you need to better manage the financial and personal aspects of your retirement.

Simplistic writing that attempts to distill what, in some people's cases, are very complex financial, circumstances into a basic primer for financial education. The book is sadly lacking in several critical areas; you would be better served by reading "The Millionaire Teacher" by Andrew Hallam, or if you're looking for entry level basics, anything authored by the Jar Lady, Gail Vax-Oxlade.

Good basic information. Well written. Similar to Gail Val-Oxlade, but more straight forward.
