How to Love Your Retirement,” .... outlines core tips for helping people prepare for the next stage in their lives....[it] contains 10 chapters that offer wisdom on topics such as feelings and attitudes about retirement, creativity and brain fitness, finances and technology. There are also exercises that readers can complete to gain further insight, and then perhaps apply the lessons to their own lives.
As is the premise of the Hundreds of Heads’ Survival Guide series, the best way to answer these questions and many more is to mine the hundreds of heads of real people’s hard-earned wisdom and advice. Barbara and her team conducted hundreds of interviews with boomers and older adults, collecting the best advice from them on a range of topics relating to aging and retirement. In addition to the hundreds of regular people interviewed, contributors include experts in the areas of finance, health, career, psychology, education and business.
The book also includes coaching exercises readers can complete to gain further insight into how to apply lessons to their own lives. This ensures readers are asking themselves the right questions and taking all the steps to achieve their retirement-based goals. The book serves both as a quick reference guide and as a workbook.

This book is special because it's readable, is not focused on "golden years," but the next vibrant stage in our lives, and it's practical. I walked away from a quick read with many good ideas, approaches to consider and tricks to try. It was a great gift and is an excellent book.
I've heard some of the advice before -- plan your finances, look after your health, and keep your mind working -- but have I always listened? Somehow it makes a difference when the words come from personal experience rather than an academic study. As far as I know, no study has come up with down home wisdom like, "The most important thing is to eat prunes," or "There is a temptation to become an alcoholic, so we have to watch that." There's a section on life coaching exercises and plenty of web site references on a variety of subjects.
I'm planning to give it to several family members who are approaching retirement age.
What I love about the book is that it does not take the topic so seriously that it scares the reader, and yet, is not too casual about serious issues that the reader will be facing.
A great balance!
