Free E-Book: Unveiling the Retirement Myth by Jim Otar

Jim Otar is a financial planner in Canada. He wrote a book Unveiling the Retirement Myth on retirement income planning: how to make your retirement portfolio last as long as you do when you are living off your savings and investments in retirement.

The book has received all five-star reviews on Amazon. People on the Bogleheads and Early Retirement forums also liked it.

The print version costs $49.99 on Amazon. For a limited time, Jim Otar is offering a PDF version of this 525-page book for FREE on his website

[Update: The free offer expired. You can still buy it.]

Please note the PDF has DRM protection. You won’t be able to print pages to paper. For a free or heavily discounted e-book, I think that limitation is very reasonable. If you don’t like reading on a computer screen, buy the print book.

    Thanks, tbf! Actually paid $49.99 for the hard copy from Amazon last year and it is very nice to have the updated version. I learned a lot from the book.

    I downloaded the e-book but it doesn’t seem to be in my downloads folder and I can’t do “save as” to put it in my financial folder.

    Thanks for the tip. I skimmed it last night after reading the tip by fivecentnickel. Tough medicine – that provides a ray of hope. Like lifestyle changes, it will be hard to take the action to live in relatively relaxed comfort.
