Author(s): Bill Jamieson
When many of us think about our retirement years, the problems facing us are unique. We have become used to a lifestyle that is wildly extravagant compared to that of only a generation ago. Houses are bigger, cars are faster, entertainment includes a vast variety of dining out, shopping, exotic holidays and designer clothing. In this book, the author traverses the whole gamut of retirement, from life expectancy, to investment strategy, health matters, home computers, and even the normally taboo subjects of sex and impending death. First published May 2008
