Plenty of useful information

This book is aimed more at the US market than U.K. but it still has plenty of advice for non-US listeners.

It comes with a PDF download which was really useful.

The book is clear, concise and thought provoking. I’m hoping to retire shortly and it definitely gave me food for thought. The narrator was very goo. I would definitely recommend this and an olanning to listen to the second in the series - So you’ve retired.

A great place to start

This contains some great practical advice to help you start planning your retirement or get an idea of what is needed to do so. In such a relatively short book, we are getting an outline or general starting point to help build upon and gather momentum in the goal that is a healthy retirement. I think it is full of useful advice and pair that with a more in-depth financial look at what is involved (which is suggested in the book) and I think it lays a good foundation. The narration is solid and well delivered by Julie Slater and kept me engaged throughout. Thought it was an engaging and positive book on what many dread or fear.
