Retire Happy helps you prepare for retirement — not just financially, but in every aspect of your life. In addition to financial life, it advises you to make personal preparations for life after work, including:
A great retirement isn’t just about having your financial situation in order.
It’s easy to be preoccupied with stock portfolios, 401(k) balances and saving options, but true happiness in retirement comes from simpler, more enjoyable things like an active social life, family time and leisurely travel.
In Retire Happy: What You Can Do Now to Guarantee a Great Retirement, author Rich Stim and Nolo co-founder Jake Warner show you how to become rich in the ways that matter most. They encourage you to balance financial concerns with a lifestyle you always envisioned for yourself.
The book advises you on how to estimate real retirement needs and create a workable savings and investment plan. Even more importantly, it advises you to make personal preparations for life after work, including:
cultivating interests outside work
leading a healthier lifestyle
revitalizing family relationships
spending more time with spouses
embracing spirituality or meditation
nurturing friendships and making new friends
All the money in the world won't make for a happy retirement unless you're satisfied with the rest of your life. So start today.

Ralph "Jake" Warner, a pioneer of the do-it-yourself law movement, founded Nolo with Ed Sherman in 1971. Nolo began publishing do-it-yourself law books written by Jake and his colleagues after numerous publishers rejected them. When personal computers came along, he added software to many Nolo books. When the Internet arrived, he championed the move online, where Nolo published huge amounts of free legal information.
