This book was kind of all over the place, advice wise. While it gave some "extra tips" that were frankly better than the "buckets" strategy IMO, it also had some info that was counter-intuitive to what I've heard so far. Also of important note, this book was written before the housing bubble, I think around 2002 or so, which can either be considered as timeless or out of date, depending on what is being discussed.

I haven't read this book yet, but it's interesting to note the author, Ray Lucia, is in some hot water with the SEC over misrepresenting claims that his investment strategies have been backtested over past bear markets. See:

An easy to follow way to look at your future personal finances. A really helpful read! "Buckets Of Money" has helped to simplify how you look at retirement planning and what you need to do.

Ray Lucia is a funny guy to!

Recommended by my financial planner. Started to read it, but found it really dull. Will try again another day.

The book was good but I have definitely read better investment-type books.
