Financial advisor Chris Hogan gives advice on planning for retirement.

If you're familiar with Dave Ramsey and his Total Money Makeover, you may also be familiar with Chris Hogan, who works with Dave. They have a similar conversational style of writing, a lot of exclamation points, and reading their books almost works better when you can have their voices in your head. But it's very solid, practical advice. I enjoyed my time reading - it was interesting, not dry, and I learned a lot. Not surprisingly since he works for Ramsey Solutions, Chris's philosophy to get out of debt, stay out of debt, and save diligently for retirement is part and parcel of Dave Ramsey's "baby steps" plan to get out of debt and build wealth. So it makes sense if you've been through the class or read Dave's books, while focusing specifically on the details of "Step 4" - put aside 15% of your income in retirement. That's about where I am in my own financial planning, so I got a lot out of the book. Chris stays positive even if you haven't been saving and are getting close to retirement, but it's especially helpful for younger people in their 20s and 30s who can really gain a lot from saving now. He breaks things down simply and clearly in a way that will make you excited to reach your own goals for retirement. ( )
