‘Who's Packing Your Retirement Parachute?’ is a self-help book that offers the key to happiness and bliss in retirement.

The transition from hectic daily living to retirement is now made easy as author C. William Creighton shares the self-help guide, Who's Packing Your Retirement Parachute?: Your Special Escape Plan from Daily Grind to Golden-Year Bliss. Released through Xlibris, this book is perfect for readers with plans to retire over the next few months.

In seven chapters, this book helps readers focus on how to make life meaningful. It provides guidance on how to make the most from life through the maintenance of physical health, emotional well-being, and a sound financial portfolio. Each chapter offers common sense solutions to help a person focus life on the issues that he or she thinks are most important. It is basically a motivation and time management concept.

This book is also about life objectives that were not achieved during the course of one’s daily life, but can be fulfilled in the “golden” years. Reading it should give them the desire and discipline to attain any objective that they have ever dreamed about. It provides a road map to success that golden agers may have thought was part of their past and never to be seen again.

“Many people would challenge the ‘gold’ in the golden years because along with the freedom of choice and ability to enjoy the rewards of our lifelong efforts comes the illnesses and maladies of old age. We are all familiar with the bad ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, and kidney and heart problems that come with aging. However, these obstacles can be overcome with replacement surgery and raw desire (intestinal fortitude). The primary objective of this book is to overcome obstacles and challenges to live a life of happiness and bliss in retirement,” the author says.

Who's Packing Your Retirement Parachute? will be featured at this year’s Frankfurt International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany on October 6 to 10, 2010. For more information, log on to
