The author takes the 30,000 foot view of how to withdraw your money when you are about the begin retirement. This book contains mostly generalizations that are common sense, but does offer a few tidbits to people who are planning retirement with the next two or three years. It was written around 1999, so much of the tax info, limited as it was, may be out of date. Mostly, I felt that the meat of this acclaimed 266 page book could have been narrowed down to 20 pages.
