Pros: This book may have some value for those who have done little retirement planning and do not already have a thrifty lifestyle. Also, the real life examples in the book are interesting.
Cons: The author is strongly in favor of expensive government programs. If you're under 75, beware, because I expect the gravy train will run out and the benefits won't be there for you when you need them!

Some highlighting (in faded yellow) in MY book. Until I read this book, I was socking away the minimum into my IRA. One tip was to make sure your 401k or 403b totalled 12% per year. I was only socking away 7.5% so I added another 5%. Also, automatically raise your contribution when you get a raise so you won't miss it.
