Today is your last chance to comment for a chance to win Mike Piper’s ” Only 20 readers have entered, so your chances of winning are super high! Piper answers three burning questions in his quick, 99-page book.

is not meant to be better. It’s meant to be shorter. It’s written for the person who”¦
“¦might not be able to find the time to read Otar’s entire 525-page book or the 370-page Boglehead’s Guide”¦But if there’s a good chance that, if you were to buy one of those other books, it would sit unread on your coffee table or bookshelf, then this book is written for you.
I met Mike at the Financial Blogger Conference in October 2011, where he told me about self-publishing on Amazon. Mike gave me a free copy of his book, even before I said I would review it on BargainBabe.com.
Each chapter is a few brief pages, with practical and simple steps to take action. Mike summarizes each chapter with bullet points at the end. does not shy away from technical terms, but it uses plain language to explain terms and concepts, making the book a great primer for anyone interested in planning their retirement.
Because the book is so short, it does not cover when to start taking retirement benefits, whether you should buy long-term health care, and some other subjects. Mike suggests you supplement the book with advice from a professional adviser or continue to self-educate yourself.
