Buy This Book - You won't regret it
on April 29, 2008
I have purchased several retirment planning books and this is the best book on the subject I have found. There are a lot of good books that cover the financial aspect of retirement, but what makes this book different is that in addition to covering the financial part of retirement very thoroughly, it also deals with the emotional side of retirement. Specifically, how you are going to spend your time in retirement. It is the non-financial aspect that is most thought provoking. Topics such as: developing interests and hobbies now for your retirement years; nurturing current friendships and making new ones; the value of improving family relationships, etc. The book is written in plain language with just enough emphasis on each topic to cover the subject matter adequately without going into unnecessary and boring detail. This book has really opened my eyes about the emotional side retirement. Prior to reading this book, I thought retirement happiness just came naturally simply because you were no longer going to work five days a week. I couldn't have been more wrong. If you buy just one book on how to retire happy, both financially and emotionally, this is the book!
