The air around is filled with anticipation, as it is time to embark on a new stage in life: not in anticipation of college life, married life, or creating a family - rather for retirement. In Shaping a Life of Significance for Retirement, the authors explore the transitions, opportunities, and challenges of facing retirement through a series of interviews addressing the personal dimensions of the transition from working full time to retirement. Up until this point retirement experts have mainly given advice about finances and health but have had little understanding of the more personal transitions that occur in relationships. It is clear that moving from full-time work to retirement involves important and sometimes painful adjustments in key relationships and in sources of self-worth. Shaping a Life of Significance for Retirement becomes just that, a tool for instilling significant personal growth in one's retirement life.
