The world including india is the beneficiary of advances in medical science which means that many of us are going to live longer than our ancestors. The downside to this is that as we age, managing our second innings is going to throw up several new challenges.

Literature on dealing with retirement is hard to come by in India and thus Reboot.Reinvent.Rewire.: Managing Retirement in the Twenty-first Century (HarperCollins) by Ashutosh Garg is a welcome initiative in this space. As the book succinctly remarks, do not regret getting old; it is a privilege denied to many. With experience in the corporate and aviation space and then as an entrepreneur, Garg goes about putting together what seems like a checklist to enjoy the most of your retired life.

The book is an easy read with short chapters dedicated to the issues that are likely to confront the retired person like how to plan what to do next, managing one’s health, dealing with children, dealing with loneliness, financial planning and creating a will.

Reboot.Reinvent.Rewire. is meant to be a handy read. Sure, this objective has been met. However, a deeper understanding of the pointers in the checklist would help the reader, especially if he or she is new to the concept of financial planning and investment.
