Seriously, my 93year old father has dedicated the past 20 years of his life helping others get honest, unbiased financial education in a world where billions are spent marketing financial services to you, with your money and at a very high cost to your retirement.
All proceeds of the book are donated to charity - Not my inheritance:)
In addition, if you're familiar with the general Vanguard/Boglehead investment principles (diversify, stay the course, etc) there won't be much new information in here for you. For those not familiar with Vanguard and the basics of retirement planning, it would be a useful guide if it were updated.
"The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning" stays true to the investing principles pioneered by Vanguard-founder Jack Bogle. However, unlike the first book, this book is focused on the various aspects of retirement planning. There is a lot more to retirement planning than 401(k)s and IRAs. Important topics such as how much money to take out every year to make your money outlast your retirement, how to factor in inflation, when should annuities be considered, what kinds of insurance you should have, and how to plan your estate are answered in this book.
Young people shouldn't brush off this book. In fact, younger readers would be much better prepared than their peers if they are proactive in reading this book. Chapters such as the one on early retirement are targeted towards them, so this book is a wealth of knowledge for all ages.
One of my favorite lines from the authors is: "Choosing the right mix of assets at the beginning of your career is not as important as getting started on retirement early and establishing good financial habits. At the beginning, it is the amount that you put into a plan that counts, rather than the return of the investment in that plan." A good way to live by this statement is to pay yourself first after every pay period and using your designated retirement accounts specifically for their intended purpose (short of a real emergency). If anything, advice like this is more useful for the younger audience than the ones closer to retirement.
After you read this book, Appendix II has plenty of good reading for novice investors, intermediate investors, and advanced investors. Regardless of which category you fall under, you will be better prepared for retirement after reading this book.
