Ready, Steady, Retire!

A meaningful retirement is worth planning for, but it doesn’t happen by accident.

Co-authored and published in 2014 by MFP’s Justin King, Ready, Steady, Retire! Plan Your Way to Success in a Redefined Retirement deals with the misnomer that retirement is exclusively an economic event.

The book guides those thinking of retiring through the minefield of planning for a successful and fulfilling retirement, and coping with the unforeseen.

Ready, Steady, Retire! is available to buy from Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions.

Ready, Steady, Retire! is likely to encourage retirees to create a more comprehensive plan for the years after work.

The authors also look beyond the financial elements of retirement by encouraging readers to think about issues such as relationships, health and fulfilment.

It features case studies and interviews with industry experts, and sets out practical solutions to deal with the challenges facing retirees.

As a baby boomer approaching retirement, I found the book fascinating and also very thought provoking, relevant, and comprehensive about issues facing me and my family.

Lots of good advice and lots of topics raised to think about. A pleasant reminder that at 60 we could have 30 or even 40 years left; and this book could help make that period more secure and enjoyable.
