The Retirement Pitfall: Retirement Mistakes The Government Never Told You About


EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J./EWORLDWIRE --- "The Retirement Pitfall: Retirement Mistakes The Government Never Told You About," by Simon Chu has been published by Outskirts Press. The author's most recent book to date is in the finance category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

"Many books have been written about how to properly plan for retirement, but they always assume that one's retirement planning began when they were young," said Chu. "This book is designed for people who are approaching retirement or are currently in retirement, and it gives them the tools to help them reach success and happiness regardless of their financial history. It is never too late to plan for retirement. Even if someone is older and has no concrete retirement plan, there are always ways to catch up and start saving."

From avoiding common mistakes and controlling one's spending, to financial planning and constructing one's estate, Chu teaches how to build a retirement plan that is designed to weather any storm. It is also designed to be easy read for the average person, with no complicated financial jargon.

"The Retirement Pitfall: Retirement Mistakes The Government Never Told You About" is available for U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble; the book has a suggested retail price of $14.95.
