(PSY AGING)
This is a must-read book for anyone approaching or entering retirement, especially right now as many people unexpectedly must plan due to COVID19 disruptions.

This is a great read alongside the author's first two books, Retire Smart, Retire Happy and Revitalizing Retirement. An unprecedented number of Americans will soon be 55 or older. More so than ever before, the question is on our minds: How do I age well? In this accessible and upbeat guide, Schlossberg builds on the concepts she pioneered in her smash hits Retire Smart, Retire Happy and Revitalizing Retirement with an engaging take on positive aging. Looking at the basic issues of aging - health, finances, and relationships - readers will learn to think about and develop a deliberate plan to age happily.

Using her own inspirational life as a backdrop, and applying her considerable experience as a psychologist, Schlossberg looks at aging through the lens of Positive Psychology. By taking a broad and comprehensive view on aging issues combined with an approachable discussion on psychological theories, this title will help teach readers the principles of aging well, including:

- Resolving your love-hate relationship with aging;
- Addressing and dealing with ageism;
- Embracing change;
- Diversifying your coping skills;
- Creating your retirement fantasy;
- Coping with health challenges;
- Understanding your family transitions;
- Handling intimacy and romance
