Noted Canadian retirement expert Barry LaValley examines the non-financial aspects of your transition into retirement. This retirement book focuses on preparing your mind for retirement and helps you understand the retirement psychology, retirement health, retirement relationships and the role that money plays in retirement planning. The goal of the book is to give readers a retirement planning tool that can be updated on an ongoing basis by both pre-retirement planners and retirees. Special information is provided for both Canadian pre-retiree planners and Canadian retirees who seek to understand what successful retirees do. The author looks at the best retirement research available in Canada and throughout the world and uses that Third Age research to help readers devise an effective Third Age Retirement plan. Note, this retirement planning book contains many retirement planning exercises for readers as part of the book along with many "Did you know's?" and "Have you thought about's?" relating to your retirement.
