The author provides a very good overview of "how we got here" concerning social security and private pensions. My only criticism is that he has a few biases that come through strongly, even when the data he provides seems to contradict his analysis in a particular area. However, that's a bit of a nitpick - I definitely recommend this book, just not all of the author's conclusions.
