Students tell me that they crowd my ‘financial strategies’ course, which features Swedroe and Balaban’s Investment Mistakes Even Smart People Make, because they like practical down-to-earth advice, illustrated with stories. This new book will serve as the capstone in the course. Now I can teach about the many dimensions of retirement: such as spending down your assets in retirement, training your kids to spend and invest right, reckoning with the possibility of losing your marbles, and how to prevent elder abuse. I will be teaching a broader course and even inducing a few students to contemplate a career as a financial advisor. I have already passed the book on to my wife and kids. What a gift!
