If you’re thinking of retirement in the near or even in the far future you might want to check out “The Changing Landscape of Retirement” by Mark Singer.

While books on retirement are a dime a dozen, this slim volume sets out the reasons so many people fail to have the retirement lifestyle they want and it details the steps to defining and achieving your retirement goals-make the time to learn about financial planning; paint a picture of what you want retirement to look like and put a plan in place.

The fact that people are living longer and outliving their money is a real concern.

Planning for inflation, taking out the right amount of money, updating beneficiary forms, avoiding IRA rollover mistakes, transitioning into retirement and understanding the time frames are issues to be aware of, according to Singer.

The book also points out common investment mistakes and how to avoid them.

Singer is a Certified Financial Planner with 25 years experience in financial planning.

He created the “Retirement Roadmap” and the “Financial Organizer System.” He was host of “Your Financial Future” on Blogtalk Radio and the long-running television program, “Your Money Matters.”

He teaches as a Certified Financial Educator and founded the Greater Boston Corporate Wellness Forum.

Six crucial planning musts like how to reduce the impact of taxes and dealing with the emotions of retirement; how to navigate through the new realities of retirement; what to look for in a financial planner and flexible models for retirement planning can be found in “The Changing Landscape of Retirement.”

Retirement issues particular to women are addressed as well. Women’s lack of financial literacy despite their increasing control of wealth; being afraid to ask about financial planning or knowing who to ask; and defining and planning for their needs and covered.

To carry the book further, free interactive planning worksheets can be downloaded from on Singer’s Website at yourretirementjourney.com to help define your retirement vision, establish a cash flow for it and organize your finances. Singer’s blogs on the Website also provides a wealth of advice.
