 The Couple’s Retirement Puzzle, by Roberta K. Taylor and Dorian Mintzer

This is the best book I have found that covers the issues couples should be talking about as they examine their values, identify and compare their dreams for the future, and plan their retirement. This easy-to-read book is loaded with stories and case studies, and it’s full of practical advice.

How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free, by Ernie Zelinski

Ernie Zelinski is arguably the leader in retirement lifestyle books and philosophy.  Ernie has great advice on topics such as how to find your true purpose, make the best use of your leisure time, pitfalls to avoid, traveling, learning, and overall life happiness.  The book is subtitled “Retirement wisdom that you won’t get from your financial advisor,” and I can believe it.  Some of his case studies and reader stories do leave me wondering how people financially support themselves doing some of the things they do.  But that aside, the book is full of wisdom, good humor, and refreshing new ways to look at retirement and leisure time.
