Thank you Nimbus Publishing, Christine Ibbotson, and NetGalley for a copy of this book to review.

There was a lot of interesting and useful information in this book.

Unfortunately, a lot of the case study examples used in the book are not in my age range, so it felt a bit hard for me to connect with those lessons. However, when I started thinking of the ideas in the book from the point of view of my family members who are closer to retirement, I think a lot of the chapters could be really helpful

My personal theme for 2020 looks like it is turning out to be "wealth". I've been reading more about getting and keeping my financial house in order and I was looking forward to reading this book, too. I really appreciated the variety of stories and examples found in the book. However, I did not realize that the book was targeted mainly to those in Canada. While the overall themes and advice of the book could be useful to anyone regardless of geography, some of the specifics were a bit lost on ...more

This is very good. It's really solid info that basically everyone needs. Note that it has a Canadian focus, so a couple of sections have info not relevant to those in the US. I read this quickly partly because I skipped some sections that weren't relevant to me. Lots of great examples and scenarios covering everything from debt, mortgages, investment properties, and more. No book contains all the info you need so this one is just one you should have. Clear, friendly language (and there is a ...more

The author gave really good tips on how to pay off debt and plan for retirement, no matter how close to it you are! I thought that the writing style was excellent, as the author didn't come off as judging the reader for having financial issues. It genuinely felt like she wants everyone to achieve financial success. The tools provided by the author to understand your personal situation and plan improvement were really helpful.

This was one of the only financial books that I have read that wasn't a complete and utter bore! Christine's book was easy and interesting to read. It also wasn't so bogged down with difficult financial terminology that only a financial analyst would understand.
Definitely worth reading!

This was an excellent how-to guide to prepare for retirement. There were tons of different real-life examples and it was very easy to understand. I would definitely recommend to anyone at any age who is concerned about retiring someday (so... anyone).
