This book tells readers everything we need to know about retirement besides the usual advice to save money...like how our relationships, emotions and mental health are affected by the life change that is Retirement. Most retirees don't think about how challenging these changes can be but this book offers support, real life stories and concrete advice on how to make the rest the best.The book looks at whether or not to move to a new or warmer location,how to volunteer, developing a new passion, and how retirement affects your family. It is full of great ideas for those of us who haven't thought to 'plan' for retirement.

This ebook has a lot of good advice, but there are a lot of gaps in it. You will get to the end of a page, in the middle of a sentence, and when you turn the page on your Nook, you get the title of the next chapter, and the previous thought is never concluded. This must happen 15-20 times in my copy of the book, and I can't imagine mine being different from anyone else's. I'm sure this is not the author's fault, just technical problems and non-existent quality control. Don't waste your time and money.
