Lynn is the author of three publications for Carswell, a Thomson Reuters business:
The Boomers Retire
is not about retirement planning.
It’s a reference for those who are working with a retirement-age clientele who need
to know how to make the most of their financial resources,
including government benefits, employer pensions, and personal savings.
The book also deals with topics such as choosing a place to live in retirement,
medical and health insurance needs in retirement, and estate planning.
Although designed with financial advisors in mind, the book is written in
an accessible style that appeals to consumers as well. Click on the title

The Boomers Retire
is also available through Chapters and Indigo (on-line and in larger stores across Canada), and Books for Business (Toronto).
The Guide to Personal Financial Planning
is a three-volume loose-leaf
subscription publication that is designed to keep financial planners
up to date in all aspects of their work, including tax planning,
estate planning, investment strategy, retirement planning, marketing,
and regulatory issues. Click on the title for further information

The Fingertip Guide
is a pocket-sized soft-cover publication designed to provide financial planners
fingertip access to key financial planning information. As a highly portable item, the
can be taken to client meetings as a ready reference. For financial planning students,
can serve as a highly portable study aid, summarizing the key facts and figures
they would be expected to know for testing purposes. Click on the title for further

Comments from Reviewers on The Boomers Retire:
“Although this title is aimed at financial advisors, all prudent investors will find this book jammed with practical advice. It is one of the best retirement titles available today.”
Canadian MoneySaver, May 2009
“Too often, retirement books focus on the superficialities instead of providing the meat of how to get to financial freedom. Biscott takes a refreshing, all-encompassing approach, and provides in layman’s terms all tax and insurance considerations, severance options (very timely in these economic conditions), pensions and investment choices including the guaranteed minimum withdrawal product category.”
Advisor’s Edge, March 2009
“[The Boomers Retire] is a serious financial planning book, aimed at financial advisors in Canada, but also their more financially literate clients. There’s no fluff here and the serious factual tone is what you might expect from an established publisher like Carswell. Biscott has written what amounts to a financial planning textbook for advisors whose aging clientele are starting to shift their focus from wealth accumulation to – gasp! – drawing down on their wealth.”
