He also analyzes how a range of personality types cope with retirement and suggests necessary modifications, as well as probes the unique problems of those forced into early retirement. He addresses financial issues with specific formulas for maintaining standard of living, steps for saving and investing, and tips for handling retirement resources. The lifestyle sections cover creating a dynamic plan for retirement living, the importance of setting up routines, keeping your mind engaged, daily exercise, and making the necessary preparations for a successful transition into retirement living.
