This book addresses the second reason why we go into veterinary medicine - to be able to retire and enjoy the benefits of our years in the profession. Long-term planning is not an easy task. Few can accomplish this without professional help, and even then, one needs to know something about investments and planning so the right decisions can be made along the way. In addition, medicine (both human and veterinary) is changing and advancing at an ever-increasing rate. Discoveries not yet announced may have major influence on our future in just a few years. The veterinarian needs to be able to make the necessary adjustments in training and practice while economic trends must be watched and evaluated so as to know how to best utilize one's financial investments.

This book is an eye-opener for the clinician who is plodding along in daily routine, not yet concerned with where he/she will be in five years, and only occasionally thinking that planning for retirement is something to do soon. After reading this book, I can tell you that it is something to do now. The authors have condensed the information obtained from recent studies of social and technological trends to help the clinician steer the practice through the next quarter century. This information is combined with easy-to-follow plans and possibilities that will educate and enlighten the veterinary professional.
