Great book! I read it in three days, and then turned around and read it again, and then after that flipped through pages, reviewing certain parts of the book.

This book told me a lot of important things about personal finance that you won't hear most other places. In some ways, it is meant for people with more money and freedom to do what they want with it than me, but still, it's really worth reading. Zvi Bodie is my money guru, I also read Worry-Free Investing. He is an economist I think from Harvard.

It's short, written in easy-to-understand language and offers guidance on how to set up less risky retirement nest eggs. I found the illustrations wordy, and some examples could've been more detailed (such as how to set up a nest egg with TIPS). But it's still a good primer for concerned Baby Boomers.
useful for forcing you to think about all the stuff you don't want to think about.
