Free Retirement Planning Book

Free Retirement Planning Book

This is just a quick note to let you know that you can download a free electronic copy (direct link to pdf) of Jim Otar’s book “Unveiling the Retirement Myth.” This book sells for $49.99 on Amazon, and is currently rated 5 stars by the six individuals who have reviewed it.

The general topic is how to make your retirement portfolio last when you are living off your savings and investments. I have not yet had a chance to read it myself, but wanted to share it with you now so you could download it before the offer disappears. The free download should be available through January 10th.

After quickly skimming over it, I will say that the book appears to be fairly technical in places, but he’s structured many of the chapters such that you can read the background and conclusions and still get the gist of things without reading the meaty parts in the middle.

Note that the pdf is protected, such that you can’t print it out, but… Hey, it’s free! And it’s also 500+ pages long, so you probably wouldn’t want to print it out in the first place. Happy reading!

Hat tip to The Finance Buff for point it out.

    Thanks for the tip. I skimmed it last night after reading your comment. Tough medicine – that provides a ray of hope. Like lifestyle changes, it will be hard to take the action to live in relatively relaxed comfort.

    I’m a big fan of Otar’s book. It really drills home the concept of luck in retirement planning like no other book I’ve read.

    At the same time, when I read the examples through the book, I can’t help but wonder why he chose them. The example portfolios don’t look much like portfolios I’ve ever seen any investor use in real life.
