Book Review - The Smart Woman's Guide To Planning For Retirement by Mary Hunt
About The Book:
What does a woman want to do when she retires? Travel? Pursue hobbies? Spend time with friends and family? We all have dreams about what those days will be like. But when it comes to turning those dreams into reality, women's retirement confidence and know-how is low. According to a 2012 survey, 92 percent of women of all ages in this country don't feel they're educated enough to reach their retirement savings goals.
For the woman who doesn't know where to start or would like a knowledgeable guide who speaks her language, financial expert Mary Hunt offers a comprehensive but approachable resource for saving and planning for retirement.
Whether she feels entitled to retire at age 65, hopes she'll be able to stop working someday, or is convinced she'll never be able to retire, every woman will find real help in these pages. With her signature no-nonsense, energetic style, Hunt assures women that it's only too late if they don't start now. She clearly covers every aspect of retirement planning during every season of a woman's life, giving women the confidence they need to shape their futures.
Financial expert and author Mary Hunt has a unique gift for taking difficult subjects, such as debt, financial matters, and retirement planning, and making the various aspects of every step clear and easy to understand. In her latest book, "The Smart Woman's Guide to Planning for Retirement," Hunt tackles the very daunting fact that most women are not prepared for their future retirements, and she sets out concise reasons and solutions to correct this problem.
This is a book that should be issued to every girl upon graduation from high school or college! It is also a book that every mature woman needs to have in order to get her "money house" in alignment so that the future won't be so scary! Hunt gives great common-sense advice here that can be beneficial to all women of any age. She also gives inspirational examples and biblical facts that back up her ideas and programs for financial security.
This is not a book you sit down to read for enjoyment, but it is a book that you absolutely need to sit down and read, even if it's in small bites, for your own sense of peace for the future. I highly recommend all of Hunt's books, but this one in particular. It is a MUST read!
