The first book you should read is Otar's Unveiling the Retirement Myth
It is new and available online for about $4. It is currently being discussed in a few other threads. Just about all other books pale in comparison in my opinion.

I believe I also mentioned to you that Vanguard has a white paper on spending from a portfolio:
https://institutional.vanguard.com/i...P_TotalRet.pdf

Coming out soon is The Bogleheads Guide to Retirement Planning which should be a worthy addition to your bookshelf after reading it.

A lot can be gleaned from this thread:

An updated FIRE recommended reading list (with a military twist)

I am sure there are others that a simple "Search" would find.

Thanks Nords. I forwarded this list to several relatives, including some in the military and some that have family in the military.

hadavi, I would also go look up Moishe Milevsky's work. He is a finance professor at a Canadian university who has made this sort of thing his academic specialty and his stuff is pretty readable.
