Here is a single-sit read than can change the course of your retirement. Written by Dr. Teresa Ghilarducci, an economics…professor, a retirement and savings specialist, and a trustee to two retiree health-care trusts worth over $54 billion, How to Retire with Enough Money cuts through the confusion, misinformation, and bad policy-making that keeps us spending or saving poorly. It begins with acknowledging what a person or household actually needs to have saved—the rule of thumb is eight to ten times your annual salary before retirement—and how much to expect from Social Security. And then it delivers the basic principles that will make the money grow, including a dozen good ideas to get current expenses under control. Why to “get rid of your guy”—those for-fee (or hidden-fee) financial planners that suck up valuable assets. Why it’s always better to pay off a loan or a mortgage. There are no gimmicks, no magical thinking—just an easy-to-follow program that works.

<p>Not long ago everyone knew what the word “retirement” meant. The expectation was that you worked until age 65—and then…coasted through your golden years courtesy of a comfortable nest egg. <p>Today, when living to 90 is common, when savings are slim, when people work longer and change jobs frequently, clinging to an outdated concept of retirement gets you nowhere. The changes ahead require an incremental approach to planning—and you better begin now. <p>The new After 50 Lifestyle calls for more than money: it demands conscious engagement, diverse interests, and the ability to adapt. <i>How Do I Get There from Here?</i> helps you plot your direction for the coming decades. The first step is to acknowledge where you are—reviewing your assets, both the tangible (e.g. finances, health, relationships) and intangible (e.g. unfulfilled ambitions and new intentions). Then self-reflective questions and exercises walk you through imagining your future, identifying skills you'll need, and preparing for inevitable twists and turns along the way. <p>A retirement of nonstop leisure is not just unreachable, but for most, undesirable. <i>How Do I Get There from Here?</i> guides you toward a dynamic future...designed just for you.</p>
