Plan Now for the Life You Want

Today's economic realities have reset our expectations of what retirement is, yet there's still the promise for what it can be: a life stage filled with more freedom and potential than ever before. Given the new normal, how do you plan for a future filled with prosperity, health, and happiness? As a companion to What Color Is Your Parachute? , the world's best-selling career book, What Color Is Your Parachute? for Retirement offers both a holistic, big-picture look at these years as well as practical tools and exercises to help you build a life full of security, vitality, and community.

This second edition contains updates throughout, including a section on Social Security, an in-depth exercise on values and how they inform your retirement map, and the one-of-a-kind resource for organizing the sea of information on finances and mental and physical health: the Retirement Well-Being Profile. More than a guide on where to live, how to stay active, or which investments to choose, What Color Is Your Parachute? for Retirement helps you develop a detailed picture of your ideal retirement, so that--whether you're planning retirement or are there already--you can take a comprehensive approach to make the most of these vital years.

I just retired. Of the books I have read about planning your retirement (3), this was by far the best. This is a comprehensive look at retirement planning, with exercises to complete. I think the authors do a great job of summarizing social science/psychological/medical/financial research about retirement. Doing the exercises was really helpful to clarify my interests, strengths, and priorities.

I've seen several books of financial planning for retirement, but this one is a nice holistic view of how to plan for retirement.

It focuses on early retirement where I will hopefully have several years of happy, active and meaningful life.
