Who Will You Be in Retiurement

Looking within yourself and analyzing your personality is key to figuring out not just what you want to do in reitirement but who you want to be. This is what this book is all about. The authors have real-life experience with this subject, having helped many people through this difficult transition, and it comes through loud and clear in the various chapters. Too many books on retirement are full of platitudes. Not this one. Part II, "Understanding the seven personality traits that determine your best retirement" provides a good stgructure for meaningful self-analysis. As the suthors point out, too many people confuse retirement with a permanent vacation, and wind up miserable as a result. Anyone reading this book and doing the exercises will not make this mistake, and will be better prepared for their future life. John Trauth, Author, Your Retirement, Your Way

Retirement 101

You just may "flunk retirement" without this book. The authors say there is more to preparing for retirement than just accumulating a nest egg. My Next Phase is a non-financial handbook that will guide you to a better retirement by addressing your psycho-social profile. The authors undertake to help you in the discovery of self-understanding that is critical to a successful retirement. Seven short quizzes address 7 personality traits that tell you about you. Each one gives a score, tells what that score means, and the affect it will have on your retirement planning. You will find out things about yourself that may be surprising. It is these unknown traits that will trip up a happy retirement. This book is aimed at the `baby boomers' but it will help those already in retirement to make beneficial changes. Even though this is a non-financial guide, the authors state that having a clear plan that considers all facets of a person, his life-style, needs and personality traits, will also have a favorable bearing on his financial future. This is not a book to read quickly in a weekend but a handbook to take in slowly and give thought to the points being made. Each chapter with its self-discovery quizzes is a building block in your retirement planning. At the end of the book is a planning template to write goals for your retirement. With lots of examples and cartoons scattered throughout, My Next Phase is easy to read and understand. There are over ten pages of Resources listed under subject headings such as Travel, Health, Mental Challenge and Work Support. These headings are also the headings in the template for goals in retirement. Overall, this book is for the ready-to-retire to the already retired. It will make you think about areas of your life that you did not realize would be issues in retirement. Armchair Interviews says: Highly recommended for a successful retirement.
