This book is absolutely a starting point, not a reference -- and it is a starting point that delivers *exactly* what the title promises: a guide to where you can live well on $25,000 a year (that's mostly Latin America, folks, so the information leans heavily there) post-retirement.

This is not a book for people looking to work overseas, or start a business overseas, or move with children overseas; it's a book about asking yourself tough questions about what you want in life, including how much you want to spend to live that life, and giving some guidance about how you might get there.

While any book based on a financial number will quickly grow outdated, and some of the places mentioned may no longer be so affordable, the authors here stress the work people need to do to discover what might be a good fit as well as practical advice (such as living somewhere truly temperate will mean almost non-existent utility bills).
