Balance Sheet

What People Say About the Book

Have you met Patrick Chang? Have you read his book 'The A to Z Guide to Retirement Planning'? If not I urge you to please take some time to meet this wonderful gentleman and get and read a copy of his book. When I first met Patrick the first think that touched me was his humility and his very down to earth persona. When I read his book it gave me another great insight about him. He had carefully considered from A-Z everything that we could possibly need to consider in retirement planning. I myself a banking professional and a former regional director of banking software firm found his book very clear, easy to read and understand. Having read many books on banking and finance and financial planning I found his book par excellence.Patrick is a professional to turn to if you are looking for an unbiased and frank advice on your financial planning matters.

What People Say About the Book

When people are asked to choose between ‘retire from enjoyment’ or ‘enjoy your retirement’, they will generally choose the later.  However, many people have inadequate knowledge on retirement planning and that’s when Patrick Chang’s book, ’The A to Z Guide to Retirement Planning’ comes in handy.  The book is an easy read and his nuggets of information can be consumed in parts or in whole. I like the chapter on ‘Job and Skills Upgrade’ because Patrick added great value to his readers by offering career management advice when the income earner is retrenched. This book is your Global Positioning System (GPS) that takes you to your retirement.’

What People Say About the Book

Retirement Planning – a concept most of us are familiar with but very few of us take consistent and regular action to do something about it. Perhaps it is because most of us don’t exactly know WHAT to do and HOW to go about doing it – and we are apprehensive about approaching a financial consultant to ask for advice.

If you are one of those individuals, Patrick’s book on 'The A to Z Guide to Retirement Planning' is an excellent place to start. Patrick’s book is truly one of a kind. He has done such an excellent job in distilling complex financial and retirement concepts into simple bite-sized lessons that are very easy to understand – from Annuities, to Cashflow, to understanding Non-regulated Investment Schemes. And the best thing about this book is that you do not need to read sequentially from cover-to-cover – you can go straight to the topic that interests you most.

This book is literally everything you need to know about accumulating and preserving wealth for your golden years. So if you are wondering what to do and how to go about building your nest-eggs for a comfortable retirement, look no further. This book is all you need.
