I have known Jean Chatzky and her financial expertise from seeing her on The Today Show. Until I heard AGE-PROOF which Chatzky wrote with Dr. Michael F. Roizen, I had not connected health and money.
Dr. Roizen reads the health chapters and Chatzky reads the financial chapters which alternate throughout the book. The concept is engaging and enlightening. I enjoyed this audiobook and highly recommend it.
It didn’t help that I’m reading No Time to Spare at the same time. NTTS is a delightful joy. It’s not fair to compare the two, but, alas, I’m reading these two non-fiction at the same time so it’s inevitable.
The new things I did learn about: health savings accounts (HSA), deferred-income annuities (QLAC), and the preferred sunscreen Dr. Roizen recommends (with micronized zinc oxide and nothing else as ingredients).
This is a great book that lays out all those adult things you need to do to protect your health and wealth.
