Details: Product Description 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. Review "It's one of the most thoughtful, engaging retirement planning books available because it lays out a specific, valuable planning model called the Retirement Well-Being Model." --Mark Miller, RetirementRevised.com "Useful insights and exercises to help you make the best choices for this new stage in life regarding work, leisure, health, and where you'll live." --Steve Vernon, CBSmoneywatch.com "Can help Americans sort through the retirement lifestyle they want and need, instead of the one that Madison Avenue wants to sell them." --Robert Powell, MarketWatch.com "A useful, practical roadmap for anyone thinking about retirement, no matter how distant." —USA Today "Filled with exercises and resources on such matters as making lasting friendships, evaluating medical treatment plans, and finding the ideal place to settle down." —Employee Benefit News"Retirement researcher and writer John Nelson argues that there are at least five other key components of a successful retirement, in addition to the financial one." —Investment Advisor “ Parachute for Retirement isn’t just a book—it’s a step-by-step guide to planning your retirement life.”   —Wall Street Journal   “A nice compliment to the more typical IRA-intensive school of retirement planning.”  —Washington Post From the Inside Flap You may be wondering what's new in this revised edition of What Color Is Your Parachute? For Retirement. First, you'll notice that it captures the continuing evolution of retirement as a life stage. Society is irrevocably remaking the old retirement into a new retirement--even though no one knows yet, for sure, what that will mean. This book helps you prepare for that momentous shift. Second, you'll notice that this edition provides you with additional planning tools and techniques. Even with all the uncertainty, you'll still have more freedom in retirement, than in any other stage of life. This book helps you design, and take concrete steps toward, the life of your dreams. The emergence of the new retirement has been hastened by economic turmoil. Rather than being an anomaly, the Great Recession is representative of a long-term shift. It wasn't simply a deviation, and then a return to normal. Instead, it reset the expectations for what normal is. (The new normal?) How does all this affect you, and your plans for retirement well-being? Financially, we've seen our retirement accounts and home values take the roller-coaster ride of a lifetime.
