    One thought on “Plan Your Prosperity: The Only Retirement Guide You'll Ever Need, Starting Now--Whether You're 22, 52 or 82”

    1. "Plan your prosperity" title is somewhat misleading, because not everyone are making over 100k a year, although it is written from such perspective. For all others, you cannot "prosper" if you don't take (high and much more active than this book presents) risks.

    2. The book doesn't deliver on the premise of its title, a cardinal sin for nonfiction as far as I'm concerned. Aside from some generic advice about setting your retirement benchmarks based on your risk tolerance and individual goals, I couldn't find any 'plan to prosperity' or 'retirement guide' in here. The author finds time to make political jabs about small government though. Take a look at Tony Robbins's MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom for a more comprehensive book a [...]

    3. Some good tips if you are an active investor. I, however, am a passive investor (something he does applaud if it can be done right), so much of the talk of choosing the right benchmark and sticking with it does not apply as a passive strategy is usually built solely on index selection. Still, there was enough other stuff to make it worth my while.

    4. Easy read The charts and graphs in the book were well done. Appendix A is insightful. Although written by an esteemed author, I found the book lacking. This is a beginner's guide to personal finance with an inadequate discussion of risk as it applies to investing. Check out Suze Orman and Dave Ramsey to supplement.

    5. I found this book to be written in plain language, which I like, but the mid section was a little complex. The end and back end was plainfully written with an easy to read Appendix.

    6. My dad recommended this to me. It made me think about whether I should get rid of my financial advisor and move my money into a simple index fund like the S&P 500 or MSCI
