Review by: BookClub Girl on Feb. 01, 2013 :
Normally one to snooze through financial books, I found The 7 Deadly Retirement Sins refreshingly engaging while it still imparted the necessary knowledge about retirement planning. I loved the stories and felt a connection to most of the characters perhaps because there are people in my life who have had similar experiences. Hoping that our path to retirement will be smooth as we avoid these seven deadly sins!

This book begins and ends with a story which most of us can relate. After reading about the 7 sins I realized I was just as guilty! The financial solutions to these sins are clearly written and easily understood - advanced degrees not required. As retirement looms for me I hope to be born again to the financial advice contained in this book and, hopefully, sin no more!

As a mid 30 year old, I really enjoyed reading this book. The concepts were told through the personal story of retirees. It was fun, easy to read and I learned a lot. I am far from retirement but I am preparing for it. The 7 Deadly Retirement Sins opened my eyes to the many mistakes that happend to everyday people. I will learn from this information and use it in my own retirement. I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about saving money and enjoying their retirment.

A quick but powerful read. You will be forced to think not only about your own retirement but also the retirement and future wellbeing of those you love. One simple mistake can diminish decades of hard work and sacrifice - a tragic, but all too common scenario. I'm not simply recommending this book; I'm declaring unequivocally that you cannot afford to ignore the principles put forth by its author.

"There's safety in numbers", "Great minds think alike" - pick your cliche. Retirement is known as your "Golden Years" but far too often, retirees make one of the seven mistakes outlined in the book, costing them MUCH MORE than the amount on the bottom line. "The 7 Deadly Retirement Sins" is a must read for not only those in retirement but those approaching retirement as well as anyone expecting to retire some day. It takes an otherwise boring subject and puts an interesting and educational story behind it.
