Item description for The Coming Widow Boom: What You And Your Loved Ones Can Do to Prepare for the Unthinkable by James F. Thomas...
"The Coming Widow Boom" by James F. "Buddy" Thomas, Jr. is a proactive financial handbook for familes. It is well established that women live longer than men. According to the 1999 U.S. Census, nearly 700,000 women lose their husbands each year, and will be widows for an average of 14 years. The average age of a widow is only 56, and 25 percent are under the age of 45. These numbers are expected to rise dramatically as the "Baby Boom" generation moves into old age. THE COMING WIDOW BOOM, written by experienced financial planner, James F. "Buddy" Thomas, Jr., is a comprehensive guide for couples who want to prepare for the future, and for the recently widowed and their trusted advisors. Preparing for the "unthinkable" will also help couples make more money in the present. This book can help lead widowed spouses out of the depths of sadness and confusion following the death of a loved one, and into a new life of financial awareness and stability.
Every widow asks, "What should I do now?" THE COMING WIDOW BOOM outlines a three-phase, eight-step path designed to facilitate confident financial decision-making, meeting fiduciary deadlines, and saving time and money, while also allowing for the natural grieving process and healing. There is a magnitude of issues that must be dealt with in order to maintain independence, income, and family integrity and wealth. This book provides answers for both men and women, and the professional advisors who guide them.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Coming Widow Boom: What You And Your Loved Ones Can Do to Prepare for the Unthinkable?
Much more than "how to" & "what to do" Jun 21, 2008
The guidance offered in "The Coming Widow Boom" is of value to anybody interested in a balanced and common sense approach to financial planning, retirement and/or "the inevitable." Mr. Thomas takes into account the whole person in a book that on the one hand gives comfort and confidence to the grieving, and on the other, serves as a gentle reminder to the professionals who guide those who have faced a loss, that behind the wills, trusts, bank accounts and IRAs there are real people, physical, emotional and spiritiual beings.
Offering sympathy as well as solid strategies for coping. May 13, 2007
Written by James F. Thomas, Jr. CFP, CLU, The Coming Widow Boom: What You and Your Loved Ones Can Do to Prepare for the Unthinkable is a no-nonsense guide to practical financial planning, especially for women, and especially in the modern era when women inevitably tend to outlive men. Chapters discuss how to determine who to trust (advisors who finish one's sentences or talk too much about themselves are best avoided), empowering oneself emotionally and financially, constructing a vision for the future, and more. The Coming Widow Boom is unique in that it addresses both the monetary and the emotional impacts of losing a spouse, offering sympathy as well as solid strategies for coping. Highly recommended for widowers as well as for widows.
