Book report: "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Early Retirement"

"The Complete Idiot's Guide to ER" was published by CFP Dee Lee in 2001.* It's the usual CI easy-reading pablum and way below the level of this crowd.* If I'd read it back then I wouldn't have been moved with anything like the same power of Dominguez, Terhorst, or Stanley's "The Millionaire Next Door", all of which had been around for years before Lee's version.* The "Guide" is more like a gentle knock at your door than a blare of trumpets with a blinding flash of epiphany.

Five years ago is ancient history in ER studies.* Read Bob Clyatt's book instead.

If you're confronting nuisances who won't leave you alone about ER but who also won't read Bernstein or use FIRECalc, then give them this book.*

The title also makes it a great gag for office parties.

Spring 2020: my daughter and I wrote “Raising Your Money-Savvy Family For Next-Generation Financial Independence.”
Author of the book written on "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement."

I don't spend much time here— please send a PM.
