"Dave Aston has written a book that every Canadian over 50 should read. It offers a clear, comprehensive roadmap to a satisfying retirement, no matter what your level of wealth. If you''re seeking a trustworthy guide through the sales pitches, financial jargon and scare tactics that go along with retirement planning, spend a weekend with Dave''s work. You''ll be glad you did." - Ian McGugan, investment columnist for the Globe and Mail, and formerly founding editor of MoneySense magazine

Is your retirement dream in doubt because of big financial questions that keep you up at night?

We all dream about retirement, but surveys show that most Canadians are very concerned about it. How big a nest egg will I need? How long will I have to work? How much can I afford to draw from my portfolio every year? What''s the impact of taking CPP early or late? Can I achieve my retirement dreams given my financial reality?

So many complex, interconnected questions . . . and too many fragmented, conflicting answers. The media and financial institutions bombard us with information and advice, but it often comes at us in bits and pieces and much of it is contradictory. It''s hard to make sense of it all, to see how it relates to your situation, and to see your own complete financial picture in all the piecemeal advice.

Written by an award-winning financial journalist, this book is your frank and trusted guide to the often confusing world of retirement planning.
  • Covers the major financial questions you''re most likely wrestling with.
  • Cuts through the noise to provide clear explanations and sensible strategies.
  • Assesses the pros and cons of your options to help you make decisions that are right for you.
  • Shows you how to fit the major pieces together to plan for a comfortable and sustainable retirement, no matter how much money you have.
This book will help you: answer the big, burning financial questions that keep you up at night; achieve concrete and practical solutions; and find the peace of mind to live out your retirement dreams with confidence.
