Wondering where you’re going to get the $1,000,000 experts say you need to retire? Join the crowd. Meet 12 ordinary people who found ways to meet their retirement goals, without sizable nest eggs. Authors Alan Lavine and Gail Liberman describe the journeys these people took to achieve their dreams and the setbacks they experienced along the way. “Yes, you can retire. Learn how others did it, and how they are living the good life on less.”—Evan Simonoff, editor in chief, Financial Advisor “Real world! Real people! A must read. You can learn how people like yourself made the most of their retirement savings.”—James A. Barry Jr., CFP chairman of the Barry Financial Group and host of Jim Barry’s Financial Success on PBS “I’ll tell you what’s so good about Rags to Retirement, what distinguishes it from the long catalogue of damnably boring finance books out there. I’ll tell you why it matters. Simple really. It’s about story, not accounting. It’s about people, not money! People like you and me. We’re not rich, never will be. We should have taken Economics 101, but we took Latin or geography, and now we’re facing our golden years with trepidation and empty pockets. Well, take heart, folks. We don’t need a million in the bank, but we do need to live creatively. That’s the lesson in these refreshing and moving stories of people who’ve led hardscrabble lives and have somehow managed to settle with dignity and independence into their golden years. And we can do it, too! Rags to Retirement: such stuff as dreams are made on.”—John Dufresne, author of Deep in the Shade of Paradise
