Yes you can, indeed... because you are NOT the average Social Security recipient

Josh Scandlen covers the A-thru-Z in a conversational style that anyone can understand and enjoy. The book is not a lengthy diatribe filled with complicated financial pseudo-science but a to-the-point practical guide to how to set yourself up to retire and, if that's all you have, live quite comfortably on Social Security. My wife and I are just starting our retirement journey, and I found the book a wonderful antidote to the "negative Nellys" (they are legion - you know who they are!) who shout that you cannot survive on the "average Social Security payment of 14-plus-hundred dollars a month" (does NOT apply to your case, in all likelihood because you are not "average"). Forget the doom and gloom from the pundits and learn what Social Security can do to smooth your way into a fine retirement. I highly recommend this short but valuable volume. It's money well-spent.
