Straight talk and solid retirement advice for all Canadians In the face of government changes, financial market volatility, and an aging workforce, Canadians are understandably concerned about the impact on their finances and their future retirement. This reassuring book debunks the generally-accepted claims about necessary savings rates, which can cause paranoia among those beginning to contemplate retirement. The authors offer greater insight into planning approaches that are not widely understood, demystifies retirement targets (age, savings, income), and outlines concrete approach.

Very well-written and thorough book. It put to rest all my fears about not having enough funds to survive the remaining years of my retirement. the authors are professionals who deal with these questions on a daily basis and carry the weight of this experience in arguments supporting their premise that most of us, Canadians, are better off financially than we think.

This book presents a limited view based on theoretical assumptions about past data sets. While there may be a few nuggets of knowledge regarding eligibility levels for CPP/OAS and GIS programs ( based on 2010 information when the book was last published), there is little new information regarding how individuals could be 'better off' than they suspect as alluded to in the title. The booked seemed more like a rehash of basic information available on the CRA website rather than the potential retirement resource it could have been. A better book for those interested in this topic would be 'Your Retirement Blueprint', a much more thoroughly researched information source.

Excellent information on what you should expect to save for your retirement by expects in the pension investment industry. Debunks the myth that you need 70% of your pre-retirement income once you're retired.
