If you want to get the best out of your retirement, it is essential to undertake both practical and financial planning. Making provision in both areas, whether you are a pre-retiree, in the process of retiring, or a post-retiree, is invaluable. Talking About Retirement consists of interviews conducted by the author with people at different stages in their lives. These interviews are coupled with the author's expertise on the financial side – as former female financial advisor of the year she gives advice on pensions, investing and financial planning in order to provide a blueprint for a successful, fulfilling retirement. Each chapter clearly states the areas it covers and gives detailed advice and relevant quotes from interviewees about their hopes, expectations and experiences. With an interesting and wide-ranging questionnaire at the beginning and a list of helpful websites at the end.
