Silences the worry financially successful people have over retirement while offering them exciting new ways to think about and plan for a life after work Moving beyond the world of work can be an anxious, fearful time for accomplished professionals fraught with uncertainty and indecision. Do I have enough money to live the life I want? Will I be healthy and able to manage any health problems that arise so that I can live the life I want? Will I be lonely? What kind of life do I want to live? These are the pressing questions they ask themselves and seek answers for. Yet most books on retirement focus mainly on the financial aspects of life after work, offering little of value to those who are financially secure. Beyond Work was written for accomplished people who feel financially secure enough to retire, but who are at a loss when it comes to planning their futures. It gives them the tools to think about all the other important aspects of retirement, so they can make a successful transition to and find meaning and satisfaction in retirement. Explores the four challenges that must be met in order to have a fulfilling retirement: financial, physical, social, and personal Packed with inspiring and instructive real-life retirement stories and practical tools that assist readers in making the transition to life after work
This book is intended to bring comfort to those who are experiencing, or about to experience, the rite of passage known as retirement. Told from the unique perspective of one who has made, with a leap of faith, and survived the transition from career professional to retiree. Holub's reflective approach in evaluating and conveying the experience and changes awaiting the retiree-to-be makes this book a delightful and humorous account of an extraordinary journey.

We face a lot of choices as we cross the threshold into the wide-open but sometimes-scary world of retirement. That's why some five years ago Tom Sightings started the blog, Sightings Over Sixty, which covers "health, finance, retirement, grown-up children and ... how time flies." He has now collected the best and brightest of the posts, adapted them and organized them into ten categories focused on retirement. The information and advice go beyond the obvious. The observations are amusing and a little offbeat. As Sydney Lagier of Retirement: A Full-Time Job says, "Sightings Over Sixty is my favorite blog. As a fellow retiree, I appreciate his often humorous take on retired life. And as a fellow writer I appreciate the wonderful writing." Sightings is a baby boomer, one of millions who are now starting to retire. Boomers are hitting their 60s. They will live longer than any previous generation and have 20, even 30 more years ahead of them. Some Type-B boomers may simply want to hang around home, read books, putter in the garden. And as Sightings says, "There's nothing wrong with that. You've earned it!" Those who are a little more wired might continue to work -- or volunteer, help raise grandchildren, hike the Pacific Crest Trail. As long as they have the energy, they'll just keep charging ahead. Welcome to the world of retirement. Remember, you only retire once, so you might as well do it right, and live long and prosper.
Sunny days and heady nights await you in retirement, not just for two weeks each year, but forever! You have been looking forward to this and have an endless list of things to do, but only once you have sorted out your other half and got him out from under your feet. 101 Things to do with a Retired Man is designed to inspire and tease your retiree into having the time of his life and to fill his days (and yours) with sometimes silly, sometimes useful, but always interesting things to do, which do not include lying on the sofa, watching daytime television, tidying the garden to within an inch of its life or stacking and restacking the dishwasher in the most efficient fashion, as apparently only a man can. Retirement is the perfect time to learn a new skill, get in touch with old friends, and explore the great wide open, so get out there and get started! This hilarious look at retirement is cheaper than marriage counseling and makes the perfect tongue-in-cheek gift for anyone facing their (and their husband's) retirement with excitement but more than a little wariness.
