5.0 out of 5 stars Retirement Finances Clearly Explained
Reading books on finance can be a harrowing experience for the uninitiated. This is certainly not the case for this book. The author, an expert in the field, gently guides the reader through seven equations that can have a most illuminating effect on anyone's retirement plan.

2.0 out of 5 stars not for the average person
This book may be a great read for a mathematician or a historian, but it is over the head of the average person planning their retirement.

This review is from: The 7 Most Important Equations for Your Retirement: The Fascinating People and Ideas Behind Planning Your Retirement Income (Hardcover)
Reading books on finance can be a harrowing experience for the uninitiated. This is certainly not the case for this book. The author, an expert in the field, gently guides the reader through seven equations that can have a most illuminating effect on anyone's retirement plan. Each factor/variable in each equation is carefully explained; then plenty of useful examples are given for illustrative purposes. As a bonus, the author provides brief overviews of the lives of the individuals responsible for the subject equations - individuals whose collective work was done over a period spanning from the thirteenth century to the twentieth.

The author's prose is exemplary as far as clarity and friendliness are concerned. It is also lively, authoritative and, yes, even quite captivating at times for a book on finance. This is a book that can not only be enjoyed but carefully studied and used by anyone planning a happy, financially worry-free retirement.
