Books and Magazines

My recommendation is to copy and paste the following links into a program on your computer such as Notes, Pages, Word, Excel - you get the idea. Click on one link at a time and make a note of what is most useful for you. 


I'm an Amazon partner and if you purchase an item through my link, I will receive a small sum. Over the years, I've gathered enough for a small cup of tea. Whoot! Whoot! I have read some of the following and others were recommended by people I trust.

Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End was recommended as a good book to explore what medicine can do for us to help get us healthy and how it helps in the end. Check out the description on Amazon.

How to Retire Happy, Wild and Free is a great book with exercises for you to complete. This helps you focus on things you like to do, how to add meaning to this stage of your life. This is not a financial guide.

How to Say It to Seniors: Closing the Communication Gap with Our Elders - this book was recommended as a fast and easy read to choose your wording and expression so your elder doesn't feel like he or she is being "bossed around" or controlled, that you are making suggestions so they can make their own decisions.

The Adult Years: Mastering the Art of Self-Renewal - I stumbled upon this book and was hooked by the Prologue! Check it out and see if you'd like to read it. 

The Single Woman’s Guide to Retirement by Jan Cullinane - a friend is reading this one and said she'd recommend it.

This is Where You Belong: The Art and Science of Loving the Place You Live by Melody Warnick was recommended by several people on a forum I read.

Working Identity: Unconventional Strategies for Reinventing Your Career was suggested by a retirement coach. The chapters cover changes in personal identity and how to handle your own reinvention.


Grand - a lifestyle magazine for grandparents but some of the articles are interesting even if you are not a grandparent

NextAvenue - a good general magazine for Baby Boomers and up
