<b>What's your number?</b> When it comes to their financial future, most people have a number in mind the amount of money they will need to live comfortably but many anxiously wonder if they can really make it. There are 77 million baby boomers in America, many of whom are just now realizing that the corporate pensions, Social Security and inheritances they were banking on might well add up to less than they had hoped. <b>The Number: A Completely Different Way to Think About the Rest of Your Life</b> by Lee Eisenberg, examines the most common financial and emotional issues related to the number and how to get a handle on them. Eisenberg, a former editor-in-chief of <i>Esquire</i>, writes with wit and insight as he urges people to examine the life they want to lead, not just how much money they need but what they need it for. While not a how-to book, <b>The Number</b> is designed to help people examine their goals, anxieties and dreams so they can better determine their number and create a financial plan for achieving it.
