The book provides an insightful look at the challenges and joys of embracing a new stage of life, and it is especially relevant to an audience of over 50s considering retirement.

As a financial planner specialising in retirement planning, I found it to be an invaluable resource for comprehending the mindset of those approaching this stage of life.
