    I have watched several friends retire and be miserable. They were going to travel, play golf and sleep late–that sort of thing. One was back to work in 3 months (same job, less salary), the other is still unhappy he retired and trying to find meaning in this new stage of life. I’m not quite ready to retire but planning is important. This book gave me a lot to think about–what to do in retirement, how to find meaning, how to blend some type of working to supplement income with lots of fun!! The many different authors with different points of view was refreshing. I am buying copies for my over 55 friends. I loved this book. It even helped me decide where to live in retirement!

    If you’re looking for 65 ideas of things to do in retirement, this book isn’t it. It’s a collection of very short essays, none of which have much substance. Further, there’s no coordination between the content, so a lot of the material is repetitive. There were a few slightly useful insights, but I could have done better with a google search. Save your money.

    It seems the only way to have a successful retirement is to tell other people how, April 19, 2012

    This book did nothing for me. The vast majority of the chapters were written by other people who have written books on how to have a good retirement. I thought it would be interesting to read about other people’s journeys, but the chapters are so short and superficial they don’t say much. And since in most cases the authors found their retirement bliss by writing retirement books or coaching other retirees, the whole thing feels like a big sales job for their books.

    Maybe if you haven’t really thought about retirement at all or read any other books on it, then it will mean something to you. But I suspect reading individual books will be more satisfying than this summary book. For example, one of the better chapters is Ernie Zelinski’s, which summarizes his books The Joy of Not Working and Retire Happy, Wild and Free. I have read these books and they are excellent, so I’d skip this one and start there.

    I truly liked the mug and thought it was very pretty and meaningful and a perfect gift that I needed. I was dissapointed to see that the print of the saying, was crooked on the cup. I would have returned it if there was ample time.

    This is a good sized, very colorful creative mug. It is very sturdy & would make a lovely gift. I ordered it for myself as a retirement gift to enjoy my morning tea. I am very pleased with this mug & would order another one as a gift.
