(Reuters) – I can’t say it’s been a great year for investing books. It’s been hard enough to keep up with the gyrating stock market and European crisis. Fortunately, there are a handful of books that manage to tell good stories or give you timeless advice. Here are my picks:
1. “Get Your Act Together. The Big Shift: Navigating the New Stage Beyond Midlife” by Marc Freedman
If you’re hitting the sweet spot between middle age and retirement, you need to read this book. Freedman is a master at defining what could be done to make your life meaningful while living the best part of your life.
“Our culture needs to do more to send signals about this emerging period, marking its existence and establishing a vision for it,” he writes.
This is also useful for those searching for a working ecology between work and life.
