This book may be the most significant tool you will find to guide you into what we believe should be the most enjoyable and productive years of your (and your spouse's) life. We confidently state this because to our knowledge, this is the only complete work presenting the combined financial and psychological provision necessary to produce a successful retirement.
After decades of working independently, and a year of interviews with pre-retirees and retirees like yourself, we have discovered some important truths about today's baby boomer generation. The very best of these interviews and our reflections on the interviewees' insights are what you are about to read.
Be forewarned. If you have been working under the premise that the financial aspects of retirement will somehow just work themselves out on their own, you are in la-la land. Or, if you think that by having a million dollar nut on your last day of work (without making psychological preparation for your retirement) will properly point your life where you wish to go, you will find yourself woefully underprepared.
In order to live out your retirement dreams you cannot afford to simply live in the moment. No matter how chaotic your immediate life is, decide today to plan for your future, both financially AND psychologically. This is not your father's retirement, this is yours. You determine its trajectory!

I discovered a book that addresses issues I have been concerned with. While having enough money is a huge part of retirement, what really hit home was how the authors address the changing dynamics of a husband and wife's relationship. It is something I've thought about since my husband and I have spent significant amounts of time apart due to the demands of work and children. Now I realize that he and I need to take a proactive approach, sooner rather than later, to find our niche together so we can have a happy, fulfilling retirement. Thank you for an honest and candid book! --Lisa Muzycka, Los Angeles
Mr. Brown and Dr. Gursky have created a valuable, holistic approach to preparing for and living in retirement. My wife and I retired five years ago and thought we had done sufficient advanced planning. But this book offers so much useful insight into the whole process, I wish we had it when we got started in our lives together 45 years ago. The financial sections offer memorable examples of the principles at work for young people and successful retirees, such as why purchases early in life are translated into enormous losses of future savings by the effect of compound interest NOT earned. The personal, psychological parts of the book are transformed into absorbing documentaries by four detailed case studies that the authors present through their interviews with three married couples and a single woman. This book will be a gift I send to both our grown children. --Tony Rogers, Washington, DC
My wife and I knew we needed to prepare financially for retirement but, after reading this book, we realized that in order to have a fulfilling retirement, we need to be prepared on all levels including those involving life circumstances and psychological issues. What we read was thought-provoking, effective, and very pertinent to real life. We actually could see ourselves (and our friends) in the couples that were interviewed. Thanks for opening our eyes. We are looking forward to our quest. --Robert J. Breitenbach, Woodbridge, VA
