Act III is a step by step guide, helping people plan for anti-retirement. The book is based on the premise that today's retirees want to stay active and have goals to achieve during their hopefully long and healthy life. The book highlights changes in our lifestyles and helps people plan for the goals, interests, relationships, health, work and financial issues for ages 50+ so they can live lives of fulfillment and choice.
I'm a ways off from retirement, but I enjoyed reading this book. The book describes the kind of retirement I want to have. I don't want to just stay at home, I want to travel. I want to be active in the community, and I want to support causes that are important to me. But it takes planning ahead to do all that, and this book provides clear advice to get there.
