Investing Blog Roundup, Book Recommendation: Retirement Planning Guidebook by Wade Pfau

Today I just want to recommend a new book that I recently read: Wade Pfau’s Retirement Planning Guidebook: Navigating the Important Decisions for Retirement Success.

If you think of books about retirement planning as existing somewhere along a spectrum of brevity-vs-comprehensiveness, my book Can I Retire is at one extreme (very concise) while Pfau’s Retirement Planning Guidebook is at the other (very comprehensive).

To be clear though, just because it is a long book does not mean that it’s hard to read. Pfau digs into the nitty gritty details, but he manages to keep the explanations clear — often by walking you through hypothetical examples so that you can see how the decision process should work, step-by-step.

I highly recommend it for anybody taking a DIY approach to retirement planning.
