    Review quote
    "offer(s) exercises to help you map your future." "--SmartMoney" magazine, 2/1/11 "Nelson and Bolles provide worksheets galore, and lots of introspective exercises, but this is more than a feel-good read. There's also some substantive financial and healthcare information--including a section about fiduciary advisors--making this book a great gift for clients and prospects in midlife who may be getting ready to think about next steps." --"Financial Planning Magazine", 10/1/10 "so relevant to today's maturing workforce. Grab a pen and complete the many questionnaires included in the book as you explore the financial, geographic, medical, biological, psychological and social aspects of your perfect retirement." "--Better Investing", 10/1/10 "an excellent book. ...Both "Parachute" books provide useful insights and a number of exercises to help you make the best choices for this new stage in life." --Steve Vernon, blogger, CBS MoneyWatch "it should calm your fears and put you in the right frame of mind to pursue a fulfilling retirement despite all the new challenges." --David Carpenter, Associated Press "A useful, practical roadmap for anyone thinking about retirement, no matter how distant." ""--"USA Today" "Filled with exercises and resources on such matters as making lasting friendships, evaluating medical treatment plans, and finding the ideal place to settle down." ""--"Employee Benefit News ""Retirement researcher and writer John Nelson argues that there are at least five other key components of a successful retirement, in addition to the financial one."" "--"Investment Advisor" ""Parachute for Retirement" isn't just a book--it's a step-by-step guide to planning your retirement life." "--Wall Street Journal" "A nice compliment to the more typical IRA-intensive school of retirement planning." "--Washington Post"
