In this Book

summary

If you are 20 or 30 years of age and just starting out in a career, this book can serve you as an excellent road map for your future retirement. If you are 40 to 50 years of age, this book can become the life-saver that can make your shortly-to-come retirement more full. If you are over 50 years of age, you need to rush out and get this book to keep from suffocating during your impending retirement. In other words, this book is an excellent volume for anyone who is in the American work force.

The author begins the book with the basic premise that everyone who works for a living will one day retire, if that individual lives long enough. As a result, each person has a right to have a say in his or her retirement. Accepting that premise, the writer discusses the reason for a healthy attitude of looking forward to retirement. He points out that simply looking forward is not enough. One must consider whether to remain in one's locale or to move to a more favorable climate; Bowman discusses the pros and cons of the issue.
