The Independent

Covers a wealth of essential reading
The Times

A fantastic reference book for anybody who has retired or is approaching retirement, but much of it could be useful for almost anybody really. It is jam packed with comprehensive information about anything and everything related to retirement.

It is divided into topics with each section broken down further into bite-sized chunks of information, most of which include websites for even further information and advice.

I will definitely be recommending this book to other people.
