Several times a year, The Wall Street Journal publishes Special Reports about active living for those fifty-five and older. And with the number of older Americans at an estimated 45 million and growing, it's no wonder these reports are one of the most popular features of both the print and the interactive versions of the Journal. Here, in Focus on Retirement, is the best of these Special Reports. As you might expect from the nation's preeminent business publication, here are tips on how you can stretch your retirement income, when you should pay your estate taxes, and how many players you really need on your financial team. Here are the best stories from the popular If You're Thinking of Retiring In... feature, medical news on combating heart disease and other illnesses, and ideas on what to do with all that free time. In Focus on Retirement you will
Meet Barbara Barrie, a 68-year-old actress who has turned her battle against colorectal cancer into a crusade for public awareness;
Ride the rails with Ira Lomench, who organized an 18-day transcontinental charter train trip for a few friends;

Collected and presented here for the first time in e-book format, Focus on Retirement is a searchable, portable, and hugely valuable resource from the award-winning staff of The Wall Street Journal.
