Assessment

This is a very worthwhile e-book offered at an excellent price-point. Its’ subtitle is advanced retirement planning based on market history, and that is exactly what is presented – much historical review although not especially of an advanced nature. But, it is voluminous. Additionally, since the past is no indication of the future – and current events like the potential of a “new economics normal” are not explicitly entertained – the treatise lacks a feeling of modernity!

Fortunately, the author does include many figures, graphs, illustrations and tables for ease of understanding. The mini case-examples also help keep it from trending to the boorish. This is an important point I have painfully learned after almost four decades of writing, editing and publishing [i.e., readability and interest]. Moreover, if the reader was not familiar with time-value of money calculations and concepts before reading, s/he will surely be after.

While mostly generic in nature – containing little tax, insurance, risk management and accounting information  – and not written for a physician or medical professional audience; the book represents a worthwhile review for doctor colleagues and/or those laymen unfamiliar with the ever widening topic. However, those physicians seeking healthcare specificity should look elsewhere for assistance www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.com
