You can look inside this book... choose the Table of Contents and google each topic. Read what a reputable source (Kiplinger, AARP, Fidelity, etc.) has to say about it. To me, it looks like that's what the author did.
The entire book is superficial and weak. The section on Annuities is a prime example. I know very little about them but I already knew everything the author told me. Other the material is borderline irrelevant. The first section is about calculating how much you'll need for retirement. A similar worksheet is available free at any of a dozen financial web sites (try your bank's) and she focuses on calculating the 'gap' between what you need and what you've saved. Then she gives tips about how to close the gap. here's my two cents...
If you're 5 years away from retirement and have any sort of 'large' gap between need and saved you seriously need to rethink how close you are to retirement. There's no way you're going to save 10s of thousands of dollars (or hundreds of thousands!) in 5 years by not dining out so much or cutting back on your cable TV bill.
