<<For comparison, two books that made a big impact on me, which I really enjoyed, were "Your Money or Your Life" and "Die Broke".

I don't want to die broke. It would be horible to reach the last month of my life with one month of living expenses worth of money, and hope to die so that I don't run out. Maybe that's not what the book is about, but I've seen written on retirement boards "I want to die as I spend my last dollar.">>

My recollection is that the Die Broke book recommends judicious use of annuities. The general plan is to buy annuities to insure you will have an income for life and to use up assets in the process.
