About Us

The Retirement Books web site and the 50Plus Books range have been created by Baby Boomers Life Change, which in 2007 introduced the first web site in Australia to serve baby boomers heading towards retirement.

The objective of this web site and our range of 50 Plus Books hasn’t changed much since 2007. We are here to give you information about life in retirement that your financial advisor is unlikely to provide and to help you achieve a happy, healthy and satisfying life in retirement.

While there are dozens of books and web sites that provide retirement advice, most of them focus on the financial issues. While we believe that getting your finances properly organised is very important, it’s only one part of the retirement planning story. It’s just as important to consider the range of lifestyle issues and opportunities that most people have to manage in retirement.

While our own editorial team have acquired a great deal of knowledge and experience about life in the 50s, 60s & 70s that’s only one source of our information. Instead of depending on our own resources, we have obtained specialist advice and contributed book articles from over forty leading experts from a variety of relevant fields including-

Change management, relationship counselling, lifestyle planning, travel, financial advice, superannuation, psychology, dentistry, health and wellbeing, physical fitness, sex therapy, legal planning, grand parenting, spirituality, and mature age employment. There’s not much about living in the 50s, 60s and 70s that’s not covered in our various books.

As well as our own books, we are offering a range of other quality books by respected authors about retirement and lifestyle issues. Our objective is to have a web site which makes it easy to obtain good quality information and advice about what retirement is really like and how you can make it a great period of your life.

Since 2010 we have sold thousands of books to individuals and have supplied bulk orders of our books to 4 major superannuation funds.
