The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) indicates that “complete retirement leads to a 5-16 percent increase in difficulties associated with mobility and daily activities, a 5-6 percent increase in illness conditions, (and) 6-9 percent decline in mental health.” Along this line, author Peter K. Rimbach, Ph.D., explores the difficulties of retirement through his book, RETIREMENT: Life’s Mt. Everest, to provide today’s retirees with insights and suggestions on how to face the new challenges.

This practical book gives readers an in-depth look at “man’s journey through psychological hell.” RETIREMENT: Life’s Mt. Everest aims to study this phenomenon and discuss the events that take place because of the unprepared quantum shift that takes place. In addition, this book discusses about the aging individual, about identities and egos, references and research, providing a perspective, and describes the “Inner Man.” Furthermore, it shares why retirement affects men much more than women, and relates the author’s own viewpoint of this phenomenon. Most importantly, it shares what retirees can do to make their journey a meaningful one with the help of suggestions and tips by the author.

Meant for today’s retirees or readers who are approaching the “third age,” RETIREMENT: Life’s Mt. Everest, will guide them to embrace a life-changing phase with much excitement and enthusiasm.
