Summary

In Retirement Fail, top financial advisor Greg Sullivan shares the insights he has gained over his 35-year career in wealth management to help you identify potential pitfalls and learn how to safeguard your hard-earned retirement assets. Because, contrary to what most people think, it is not poor portfolio performance that usually busts your retirement accounts. Rather, it's the emotional decisions you make that can cause major problems.

Whether it's buying a vacation home that is beyond your reach, subsidizing your adult kids to a degree that is ill advised, or passing on the umbrella insurance your advisor recommended, the choices you make have an enormous effect on whether you'll be able to enjoy the comfortable retirement you've dreamed about.

Retirement Fail lays out the nine common hazards that trip up otherwise well-prepared retirees, encouraging you to think through your decisions and set a course aligned with your values and your ultimate goals.

Great book and easy to read.

The book does a great job using stories to show how emotional decisions and life events can disrupt our financial and retirement goals.
