Retiring with Attitude.

Bookmark of Spalding has selected Retiring with Attitude as its book of the week.

Retirement these days is no longer simply a case of being presented with a carriage clock on your 65th birthday, then heading off to play golf for the next 20 years.

Changes to life expectancy and pension provisions have meant people are now expected to work longer and need to think more proactively about their future.

Alongside this are the challenges of ageism and financial insecurity, the demands of family, and the stress induced by this time of transition.

If you are feeling daunted by all the options and implications then this is the perfect book to help you.

Caroline Lodge and Eileen Carnell are both recently retired from academic life at the Institute of Education, University of London, and run courses on writing and retiring.

Their book Retiring with Attitude: Approaching and Relishing your Retirement, will help you find your way to an active and fulfilling future.

With an RRP of £12.99, Bookmark is offering this book at £3 off plus an extra 20 per cent discount with the voucher contained in the Spalding Guardian of July 31.
