Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“His rambling is marvellous, and clearly brought him pleasure.”  (International Psychogeriatrics, 1 January 2014)

“As such, the book is not a source for researchers; the book is, however, a valuable addition to the self-help retirement literature that is mainly focused on financial planning for retirement.”  (Australasian Journal on Ageing, 17 June 2013)

“In his clearly-written and thought-provoking new book, recently retired clinical psychologist, Derek Milne, helps to explain the issues facing those in retirement and presents practical solutions to deal with the sometime traumatic aspects of having a lot more time on our hands .  . . The result is a book that is both intriguing and instructive.”  (Mature Times, 25 February 2013)

“Incorporating the author’s personal experience, real-life case studies, the latest research and well-established theories, The Psychology of Retirement provides many insights and much food for thought concerning the nature of retirement and the new challenges and opportunities it represents.”  (In My Prime, 1 February 2013)

“This book explicitly reframes retirement not as the retreat from the world of work but as a transition from paid employment to a new life phase, with new challenges and opportunities. Milne makes the point that it is important to take the transition to retirement seriously. He estimates that approximately one quarter of people who retire will experience it as a stressful, complicated transition and the book is intended to provide a ‘recipe’ for managing this.” (Therapy Today, June 2013)
