About the Author

Mo Wang, Ph.D., is Associate Professor, Department of Management, Warrington College of Business Administration, University of Florida.


"This book is a stepping stone to more study and research on the topic of retirement. Many of the books on this subject for practitioners like me are typically how-to books with minimal insight into the scholarly research that has gone into what is being offered. As a practitioner that appreciates a "scholar-practitioner" model, I found this handbook to be very helpful, especially about areas with which I am less familiar or in areas in which I might want to augment my knowledge." -- Doody's
