Book Review-Retirement Quest by John Hauserman

What can I say? I'm screwed! This book was not written for me. However:

If you are out of college and ready to take on the world, this is a great book to help you plan well ahead for your retirement (and believe me it creeps up faster than you can imagine). If you are almost ready to retire and have a sufficient amount with which to retire, then this book is for you. However, if you're like the millions of Americans who are barely surviving and have not managed to tuck away enough for your golden years, then I'd suggest you better find another way to keep working until you die. Or in my case I'm hoping to sell a million copies of a best seller!

John's book was an easy read and gave valuable insights. I wish I had read it say 20 to 30 years ago.

So here is what John's book is all about:

RetirementQuest: Make Better Decisions was written by a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner who has been counseling clients since 1992. Drawing from his twenty years of experience, John Hauserman has developed a unique ability to communicate complex financial subject matter in easy to understand terms. Readers are guided through the basics of financial planning, while threads of politics, history and psychology are woven together to create a tapestry of deeper understanding into the financial planning world. 
Complete with hard hitting insight into the practices and sometimes abuses of the financial services industry, John has created a masterpiece designed to help those responsible-minded investors who are seeking to avoid common planning mistakes.

  1. I'm in the same class--hoping to make a living with my books and have a somewhat decent retirement. Stopping in from the campaign!!

  2. Stopping by from the campaign! So nice to (cyber) meet you! And good info on retirement - it's hard to think of the future when it feels so far off. This is a great reminder - thanks!

  3. You're welcome Daisy! It's nice to have you stop by.

  4. At 19, the thought of retirement absolutely terrifies seems so far away! But perhaps I will check it out. Anyways, I'm in your campaign group and I just stopped by to say hi!


  5. It's scary when you get to my age and wonder just how well your children are going to take care of you. I'm just hoping I don't live long enough that they have to change my diapers. :P
