Summary

Don't have enough money saved up for retirement? No problem. Never started a 401k or IRA? Don't worry. And are you so far behind in your personal finances you're worried you'll never be able to retire? It's all good. Because whether you know it or not, the entire US retirement system is horribly flawed and was doomed to fail anyway. And that's why every American needs to listen to Poor Richard's Retirement.

Poor Richard's Retirement is a revolutionary retirement system because, unlike today's conventional retirement planning, it works. It puts retirement easily within the reach of your everyday man. Whether you have student loans, a mortgage, are behind in your retirement planning, or have no retirement savings at all, this book bypasses it all by showing you how little you truly need to retire. And it does so through the simple truth that happiness is not found in $400 yoga pants, luxury SUVs, McMansions, or whatever lies they're selling you on TV, but through love of family, friends, and your fellow man. All of which are free.

Make retirement infinitely easier and life happier. Buy Poor Richard's Retirement today. Nobody in America has saved enough for retirement...until now.

save your money....

let me summarize.....

live frugally and don't accumulate masses of unnecessary material things
save as much as you can for retirement
spend time with friends and family.

this book is nothing about how to go about saving for retirement or investing for retirement.

Worth the listen

The book took a very interesting perspective on retirement. Clarey swims upstream and informs his audience that they should focus on what matters most: people not things.

Excellent Advice for Everyone

This short book outlines the basic framework of how to recognize what is really important to you, and how to de-clutter your life. It details an important concept: stop buying shit you don't need with money you don't have.

An important book on relationships

The retirement advice was good, but it was outstanding when talking about life relationships.

Contains a lot of great advice

Contains a lot of great advice, but the performance was mediocre. I would not let this distract you from considering all the advice this book has to offer.

Great Book!

I liked everything about this book. Simple and easy to grasp.

It’s for anyone who doesn’t want to work for the rest of their lives. The book also gives a different perspective on retirement and provides steps that if followed will make retirement a reality for you.

Great Book

I would definitely recommend this to my friends. I wish people would depend on themselves for their retirement and invest.

Great Listen

Great essay. It repeats a lot of content from bachelor pad economics that’s why I gave it a 4/5.
