The Couple's Retirement Puzzle

 The Couple's Retirement Puzzle:
10 Must -Have Conversations for Creating an Amazing New Life Together
Dorian Mintzer & Roberta K. Taylor
Retirement is something couples look forward to long before it arrives. But often after retirement arrives the couples find themselves in situations that they didn’t anticipate. Retirement isn’t just about quitting your job. It is about a complete lifestyle change. This book will take couples looking at retirement through 10 questions that will start conversations and help prepare the couples for what is ahead.
I was impressed with the depth and thought put into the questions and presentation of this book. The questions are all across the board and are about topics such as financial, health, family, new hobbies, and downsizing. Each chapter begins with a story that illustrates the question that will be discussed. The chapter is then filled with stories, advice, and thoughts surrounding the question. Each chapter ends with a special section designed to make the chapter more personal. It starts with “talking it out”, has several exercises, and ends with a puzzle piece and fun work. While I am quite a few years from retirement, I enjoyed reading the book and learned a lot. I will be keeping this book for the future and think everyone nearing retirement should read it.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
