1) setting up your retirement funding and making sure it's on the right track,
2) the myths, or common beliefs, that can throw us off track,
3) how to minimize taxes,
4) the absurdity of Canadian tax law and how it punishes seniors,
5) how and where to invest to minimize excessive taxation,
6) definitions of the major investment vehicles and their level of risk,
7) good basic plans for Canadians based on age groupings.
The book is easy to read, clear, concise, well-written. I started to read it in the wee hours of the morning and couldn't put it down. Maybe it should be required reading for anyone with a Canadian bank account!
Thank you, Mr. Pape.
For those who have no idea of their retirement or only vague notions such as "I've got my pension from work", then you ought to read this. It is not alarmist, but it is a practical exposé of what retirement is in our rapidly changing times. If you are someone who is already looking after your personal finances with your retirement in view, it is still a valuable read for no matter how well informed we believe ourselves to be, we can always learn something new and helpful.
The style in which Pape presents the harsh new realities which constitue the first half of the book is easy to read, his chapters well organised and his points supported with pertinent anecdotal information. The second half of the book is an exposé of solutions and at no time does he come across as pedantic, which is often the failing of this sort of "financial help" literature. He gives us good sound, uncomplicated advice.
"Retirement's Harsh New Realities" covers thoroughly all of the aspects of retirement as it confronts us today. If you have yet to begin to plan for your retirement or you have already begun doing so, in my opinion, buying this book may be one of the best financial retirement investments you could make .
As a person who is already retired, I purchased it mostly for my kids....but In AM finding a few gems for myself, too.
Worth the purchase price.
Canadian information that is so hard to find. Easy reading that gets to the
point and maps out the issues and solutions. Great job!

To bad the average person does not read this book. He has a lot of down to earth stratagies on retirement and investing.
