I agree the book spends more time in focus for married couple's strategies regarding benefit options. Since I'm married, that is of interest to me. Your response tells me you have already put much thought into your options. I also am planning to convert as much of my and my wife's IRA(s) to Roth(s) between retirement and drawing SS benefits. The book has explained the benefits of waiting longer to draw retirement benefits, by using spousal benefits instead. That option is not explained well by SSA, and many (most?) retirees don't understand it well. This book has influenced my approach to how I will draw SS benefits, so to that extent it has been a good investment.
