Boomer women are about to pass yet another milestone--RETIREMENT! The first wave of women to enter the workforce in significant numbers benefited from the feminist revolution and fought for a place in the world of work. Now these women are leading the rush for the exits. As they near retirement age, they're wondering what was gained, what was lost, and what comes next. They're stepping out into trackless territory. This is the book that will show them that retirement is not the end of a productive life. It can be an exciting gateway into a future that is challenging and rewarding, always provided that we plan for it.

Written by two successful professional women, a lawyer and a psychologist, the book explores the practical, personal and psychological issues surrounding retirement. With clear-eyed vigor and enthusiasm they look at what retirement will mean for Canadian women, and offer concrete strategies for gaining control of the retirement process. The book offers practical advice on such topics as:
how much money you really need to retire, and how to manage your money now so you can get there sooner how to discover what you want out of the next phase of your life, and how to get it how to deal with health and aging how to manage our 'sandwich generation' issues, and maintain satisfying, mutually nourishing relationships with family and friends
