9780071702478: How to Retire Happy: The 12 Most Important Decisions You Must Make Before You Retire

"Want excellent insights on retirement planning from a professional who’s actually experienced retirement himself? You’ll get just that from Stan Hinden’s book, How to Retire Happy, now in its third edition. Stan was a Washington Post financial reporter for 20 years, and after he retired, he wrote the Post’s 'Retirement Journal' column for which he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. What I like about Stan’s book is that it combines good financial planning information with his story about his own retirement. He’s candid about the mistakes he made and how he’d do things differently with the benefit of hindsight."
--Steve Vernon, columnist, CBSMoneyWatch.com

“Everyone in the workforce today should read this book!”
—Horace B. Deets, former Executive Director, AARP
