The New Retirement
The Ultimate Guide to The Rest Of Your Life  
By Jan Cullinane and Cathy Fitzgerald

     This is a book about what people should be reading when they are thinking about the future and how to stretch their money to be able to do the things they want to do. There are many options and ideas given about how to handle moves, health issues, taxes and personal finance for the years of the future when you really don’t want to think about them at all. Retirement sort of sneaks up on the majority of people, and this book will open the eyes of even the most denial prone person to the realities and possibilities of what the future can hold. Ms. Cullinane and Ms. Fitzgerald did their homework and cited places to live, cost factors, housing options, even down to and including climate breakdowns for the discriminate mover.

    The New Retirement will let the reader and soon to be retiree have ideas, hopes and the ability to plan for a future that they can enjoy. I know that some of the things that are brought up were even new to me, and I am nearing that retirement age. Overall, I would recommend this book to any of the newest boomers and others who are starting to think about how to live the rest of their lives fully and completely. Good thought and lots of research went into this reference book. My hands off to the duo for writing this book. Nice Resources and CheckList and WorkSheets sections that are very helpful to the potential retiree.
