The Retiring Mind : Book Giveaway

April 15th, 2010  |  Published in Retirement  |  13 Comments

The Retiring Mind: How to Make the Psychological Transition to Retirement is a new book written by Robert P. Delamontange, PHD. As you can tell from the subtitle this book focuses on the psychological component of retirement rather than the financial component. In the book the author details several self-analytical processes to help you identify your personality type. He then offers suggestions based on your personality type on how to solve problems adjusting to retirement.

I am a ways off from retirement but it makes sense to me that your retirement planning shouldn’t only be focused on your financial needs. Although this blog will remain focused on the financial aspect of retirement one should plan for the aspects of retirement as well. This book can help you plan how you will adjust to retirement.

I am giving away a copy of this book. To enter all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. There is a limit of one entry per person and the book will only be shipped to a U.S. mailing address. The winner will be chosen at random Thursday April 22nd.

    an important topic. My financial advisor told me some years ago that I had done the “heavy lifting” required for retirement and now it was time to focus on the mental aspects of retirement. Now it’s only 3 months away….

    Hubby retires next month. I still have several years. The book sounds like one we would enjoy.

    As I’m busy “running the numbers” and thinking about retiring in a year or two, I realize there’s more than just the financial side to retirement. Thanks for the giveaway!
