Product description


Because of my work as a retirement coach, I read more books on retirement than most people. I found 12 Ways to Retire on Less to be a breath of fresh air. It's a well-written, no-nonsense, comprehensive guide to planning for retirement in today's challenging environment.... It's a pragmatic, reality-check on retirement today that shows how there are still ways to make it work. The strength of the book is on how to make savvy moves to optimize your resources in funding what for many people promises to be a longer retirement than previous generations enjoyed. However, my favorite parts of the book were when Edleson goes beyond those core financial topics to emphasize the importance of keeping the dreams you have for retirement in focus.... I recommend this book as a valuable resource that will help you reframe how you're thinking of your next chapters and retire smarter.-- "Retirement Wisdom"

Edleson helps map out a proactive, purpose filled and deliberate retirement. These steps help readers understand many of the details which are faced in retirement.Andrew J. Feldman, CFP, president, AJ Feldman Financial--Andrew J. Feldman, CFP, president, AJ Feldman Financial

Harriet Edleson has written a concise guide for those who have not budgeted nor saved enough to continue their current lifestyle when they retire, or who do not have any retirement benefits other than some level of social security. Her book 12 Ways to Retire on Less, is a good primer for those who are not on track to be able to maintain their current lifestyle when they retire. She provides a guide to help the 40% of the population between 55 and 64 years of age who do not have retirement accounts. This book is an imperative for anyone who questions if they will have "enough" as well as those who may feel fairly comfortable, but would like to learn how they can retire on "less." It is well written, straight forward and a compelling read.--Margaret Wylde, CEO, ProMatura Group, LLC

This book provides wonderful suggestions about how to make the most out of retirement by ensuring that your dollars go as far as possible in terms of budgeting, finding fulfillment, and making choices about work, Social Security, housing, and travel. I learned quite a bit.--Wade D. Pfau, PhD, CFA, RICP, professor of retirement income at The American College and founder of
