CONTENT OF BOOK: Basically, it includes an Introduction and is organized in Three Parts: Introduction: background of book, including a very clear guide on how to begin a simple, self-reflective, personal process for analyzing your own life journey for aging and retirement.
Part 1: (Chapter 1 and 2) walks the reader through a self-reflective life story of the author as both an example and method for identifying how success is defined meaningfully in an individual’s life. The psychological assumption is success consists of very personal meanings and passions for most individuals, “learned” in early life experiences, not something primarily defined by our external culture, unless you allow it to be.
Part 2: (Chapters 3-10) presents methods for identifying many meaningful areas of life to examine for the purpose of planning for aging and retirement. Since most retirement books focus primarily on financial planning, this book can be supplemental and integrative to other financial advising. Part two is much more comprehensive in one’s other life areas for planning.
Part 3: (Chapter 11 and 12) discusses in-depth issues about Success, Contentment, and Retirement.
