REVIEW For What Color is your Parachute for Retirement 2011


















Thank you to the great people at Random House for sending me a copy of this book.

TITLE:                      What Color is Your Parachute for Retirement 2011

AUTHORS:              John E. Nelson and Richard N. Bolles

GENRE:                  Personal Finance

RATING:                4 Stars

Okay, so granted I am not all that close to retirement, although somedays I wish I were :) however, since I spent alot of my younger days NOT thinking enough about retirement and especially about preparing myself for it, I have alot of "time" to catch up on.


This book is, without a doubt, a very thorough look at all things retirement - some obvious things and some very less! Of course, being Canadian, some of the items don't really apply to me - however, I found that overall, this book was loaded with important information that will, no doubt, come in very handy.

I always feel inspired when I read these types of books - as though all things are possible and thankfully, as is the case with this series, there is a wealth of information that will go a long way in ensuring that i know what the heck I am doing now and when the time for retirement draws closer.
Very clearly written - for a layperson as well as those who are more knowledgeable. The information is ooncise without being complicated or impossible to follow. No boring graphs or technical jargon that mean absolutely nothing.
