Book Review

This week, we're highlighting books that stand out as great sources of information on how to make the most of your lifestyle. While there are many resources online, these books may offer more in-depth strategies for having fun, planning ahead, and (of course) hunting down senior discounts.

Unbelievably Good Deals and Great Adventures That You Absolutely Can't Get Unless You're Over 50, 2007-2008, by Joan Rattner Heilman.

This book provides many tips for saving money for the physically active and travel-oriented senior. It is well-organized and gives tips for big and small budgets alike. The book focuses primarily on those discounts related to travel and its widespread offerings can be used to do adventurous things near home, as well as when you're on the road. Heilman also includes information on clubs and travel programs that can help you increase your savings.

The Savvy Senior: The Ultimate Guide to Health, Family, and Finances for Senior Citizens, by syndicated columnist Jim Miller.

Jim Miller has turned his column into a comprehensive guide to aging. Covering topics from social security to estate planning to grandparenting and avoiding scams, Miller brings together his sense of humor and knowledge to create an informative guide. Though his tone is sometimes light, the information he brings to the table is always useful. This book is a great place to start if you find yourself confronted by a myriad of questions about aging and your future.

Retirement on a Budget, by John Howells.

John Howells' book provides seniors with information for retiring comfortably. This guide includes information on topics such as; tapping your equity, affordable retirement locations at home or abroad, qualifying for Medicare and Medicaid, finding fun and low-cost recreational and cultural opportunities, mobile home and RV living, trimming utility bills, and thriving as a single in your retired years.

Invent Your Retirement: Resources for the Good Life, by Art Koff

Art Koff has created a "user-friendly" guide for those preparing for retirement. The book touches on subjects such as; where to retire and how best do it, keeping fit both mentally and physically, working in retirement or creating a new home business, becoming computer savvy, protecting your credit, estate planning, assisted living, long term care and social security.

When researching books to purchase, particularly those on senior discounts, be sure to check the publishing date, as the information in these books can be out of date in a couple of years.
