A Holistic Guide to a Happy Retirement

(8 customer reviews)


“A Holistic Guide to a Happy Retirement” is all about enjoying this new stage of your life to the fullest.


“A Holistic Guide to a Happy Retirement” is all about enjoying this new stage of your life to the fullest. It’s different from most retirement books because it takes a big picture view of retirement rather than just focussing on financial planning. There are lots of great opportunities out there, but there are also some challenges that most financial advisers don’t talk about.

This book helps you to consider subjects like :

  • creative leisure
  • health and wellbeing
  • travel
  • purpose in life
  • handling change
  • your relationships
  • part time work
  • your attitude and emotions
  • your finances

It’s far more comprehensive than anything else you’ll find on the market.

As well as suggestions based on our 10 years experience in retirement lifestyle issues, there’s lots of practical advice from over 25 experts from a wide range of relevant fields.

This book has been used by two of Australia’s largest super funds to better prepare their members for retirement.

We also offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied


This is the perfect book for anyone who wants to get a heads up on potential future issues in the second half of their life. This e-book is not only great reading but the video links and resources that come with it make it invaluable.

  1. Janette Watson

    Before I read this book I thought that retirement planning was largely about having enough money to see us through. After reading the book I realised that all the elements that make up our preferred lifestyle are just as important as our money, or more so. Thanks for opening my eyes and encouraging me to think about the bigger picture

  2. Vic Fairy

    I was struggling with the adjustment to retirement until a friend recommended this book. It really was a game changer and helped me to realise that retirement is the beginning of a new and exciting stage of life. Since reading it, we have realised that this is our time. As a result, we have been getting out with our friends and having a lot more fun. Thanks for your help.

    My superannuation fund gave me a copy of the book about being healthy and active in retirement and after reading it I decided to buy this book. Both books were full of good,practical advice for anyone thinking about retirement.Thanks for opening my eyes.

    I must congratulate you on the way this book has been presented. It is a good guide on how to plan your future life without someone telling you what you should be doing. I have gained more confidence that the life ahead is good

  5. Mario Borsato

    I thought that after 60 year’s experience at living in all kinds of situations, retirement would be easy and I wouldn’t need advice from anyone. Well I got quite a shock when I had 7 days of spare time every week. It wasn’t as easy as I thought to be retired if you were used to be an active, busy person.
    Your book was a real help and it was encouraging to discover that the problems I was having with the adjustment were in fact pretty common. The advice given was easy to follow and very practical. It made a real difference for us.

  6. Richard Sorelenko

    A very useful book. Instead of the views of one author, the publishers of this book somehow managed to get articles from over a dozen different experts from a variety of fields, all related to making a success of retirement.. It has given me a lot of confidence as I approach my retirement.

  7. Margaret Stenson

    I have recently retired and I purchased this book on the recommendation of a friend.
    This books aims to get us thinking about some of the potential challenges that we can encounter as we age, such as, where to live, how to remain healthy as we age, the pressure that spending 24/7 can have on a relationship and the issue of sexual intimacy, to name a few.
    It also provides a very comprehensive run down of the financial aspects of retirement such as superannuation, taxation and maximising your age pension entitlements.
    It was easy to read and contained lots of good information about a variety of topics.
    Definitely worth 5 stars.

    A fried recommended this this book after I complained about being bored with retirement. While I thought I had done a reasonable job of planning for retirement, I had really only considered our financial situation and was bored with not much to do and no real challenges. Reading this book gave me a new insight on what retirement was really about. It certainly helped me to appreciate and enjoy this new, more flexible lifestyle
