The Number: What Do You Need for the Rest of Your Life, and What Will It Cost?

Do you know what your Number is? “The Number” is a favorite book of mine because it raises a question that everyone approaching retirement has; How much do I need to save? The Number walks through many scenarios of people planning for retirement, and offers suggested and ideal savings that a couple or individual would need. The book offers detailed asset allocations, and lifestyle expectancy, based upon retirement income and money saved. But the book is not as cut and dry and number based as one would think. I found inspiring stories and encouraging advice for people planning for their retirement. I would recommend “The Number” to anyone over 30, who is concerned amount how to plan for their retirement.
