Publisher's Summary

When you hear the word retirement, you probably don't imagine yourself scrambling to pay your bills in your golden years. But for too many Americans, that's the fate that awaits unless they take steps now to plan for the future.

Whether you're 25 and starting your first job or 55 and watching the career clock start to wind down, today is the day to get serious about your retirement.

In Retire Inspired, Chris Hogan teaches that retirement isn't an age; it's a financial number - an amount you need to live the life in retirement that you've always dreamed of. With clear investing concepts and strategies, Chris will educate and empower you to make your own investing decisions, set reasonable expectations for your spouse and family, and build a dream team of experts to get you there.

You don't have to retire broke, stressed, and working long after you want to. You can retire inspired!

Great for a Ramsey newbie; waste of time for followers

I am a Dave Ramsey fan to the core. I am always being made fun of at the office and then a minute later asked financial questions based on Dave's teachings. I am even starting a financial peace class in the next few months.

This book is extremely helpful for anyone Who is starting out with the program/ideas.

But for someone like me, who has read a lot of his books and listens to the show daily. This book was a total waste of time, Chris is a great personality and I love to listen to him. I did enjoy the few facts that he did provide, like the history of retirement. But as a whole this book was a regurgitation of Dave's own words and really did not bring anything new to the table. As a hard-core fan, I was extremely excited to listen to this book, but it was disappointing .

Great book, but it's missing the foreword

this was a great book. If you read other books by Dave Ramsey it's quite similar , but it's a new story with a new reader, it's a new way of saying things but it's quite the same message in the end. I really appreciate what Dave Ramsey team and what Chris did with this book. the only thing I didn't like is that it is missing the foreword by Dave Ramsey. the foreword is mentioned multiple times in the book without being present. you have a great voice Mr Hogan. I am looking forward your next book. Thanks

A lot of stories but not specific direction

I was disappointed in this book. after reading Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover I expected this to be part two but instead it's mostly just stories and theories without specific Direction.I feel like this could be boiled down into a check list of five items instead of a 8 Hour book. I did listen to it all the way through and enjoyed hearing some of the stories, but I expected it to be more Hands-On Direction like Total Money Makeover and it is not

another Dave Ramsey Show

while the book is full of fun anecdotes and stories, I did not find any of the information new to me. highly disappointed as Dave Ramsey has been hyping this book on his show for many weeks.

Full of fillers

The book is like someone sat down to write 5000 word paper for high school and when completed realized they had 421 words. The rest is filler and repetition.

Awesome!!!

I absolutely enjoyed the book!!! I gave it all stars because it explained everything you want to know in detail. I learned so much even retirement information I knew was broken down in a way a beginner can understand and someone with great knowledge can take away something new. I would recommend to all my friends and family !! Great job Mr. Hogan !!!

Great summary for leading into retirement

Chris does a great job addressing all the topics that should be considered leading into retirement. This is a very important read for adults of all ages. The only thing missing is some help determining what to do in retirement other than slowing down and relaxing. That would really help me to retire inspired.

How Old Are You?

Would you consider the audio edition of Retire Inspired to be better than the print version?

Yes, it is narrated by the author with his booming voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I couldn't stop listening. It only took me a few days to get through it.

Any additional comments?

This book is great for any adult no matter what stage of life you are in. The information in this book is very valuable to anyone who wants to change their family tree. I'm almost thirty and I'm so thankful I picked this book up when I did. I will retire inspired and I'm taking the steps to make my future bright financially. I have figured out how much I need to put in each month and what my final number RIQ will be so I can live in my senior years comfortably and without worries about money. Thanks Chris Hogan!

Chris hogan uses many good examples and stories to make this book interesting and real. I received so many great ideas to help me improve my future and to pass on to my children. I now have hope and confidence that my future will be good.

Huge Dave Ramsey fan didn't feel as if Chris message was as compelling..

Hugely sensible book and well done Chris. As the book progressed didn't feel as if I learnt anything that I hadn't already learnt from Dave R and just sounded like a more sporty version of Dave but with a deeper voice ( and of course without the "bankruptcy and rebuild" track record). Unfortunately I found myself wanting to fast forward through sections and although a sports fan, couldn't really connect to offence / defense analogies or insightful basketball coaches. Mindful of the commitment it takes to write a book but I think it lacks a hook

Amazing book

This book was amazing. I live in the UK so some of the information wasn't relevant (we don't have some of the accounts etc mentioned). BUT this didn't distract from the message of the book. LOVE IT! I have the hard copy version too.
