Book Review: Retire Before Mom and Dad: The Simple Numbers Behind a Lifetime of Financial Freedom, By Rob Berger

This is a review of the audio book Retire Before Mom and Dad: The Simple Numbers Behind a Lifetime of Financial Freedom, By Rob Berger.  I found it on iBooks, and it’s available in both audio and electronic formats.  As of this writing, it is not available on Bard.  Total reading time for this audiobook is 6 hours and 43 minutes.  The chapters are fairly short, so it makes it easy to read.  The author narrates the book.

What I like about the book is that the author takes a deep dive into the why behind investing.  For people who may not be comfortable with the fire concept, or who feel like it’s out of reach for them, he doesn’t push that.  Instead, he points out how doing a series of small things over time will lead to financial freedom down the road.  He talks about the levels of financial freedom, taking a good look at your expenses, and brings home that practicing the ideas offered will give you the ability to make choices you want to make.  He takes a lot of the investing concepts that get thrown around and breaks them down into plain language that’s easy to follow.

As a side note, I think people who listen to this book will find it nice that you don’t feel like you have someone yelling at you. His voice is very calming.
