    Practical Planning for a Creative Retirement, December 13, 2008

    For years, as a long-time family therapist and as a Presbyterian minister involved in parish ministry, I have dealt with clients and parishioners facing approaching retirement who didn’t have a clue as to what they want to do with the rest of their lives. Some of them have become traumatized by indecision, while others have acted precipitously in relocating somewhere else without having any basis for choosing this particular location…..only to quickly discover that the choice they made was disappointing of wrong. In his new book, The Joy of Retirement, author David Borchard, a professional counselor with 30 years of experience in career management and transition counseling, has provided a means of helping those facing retirement to examine their own talents and dreams in creating happy, productive futures. Borchard does this by challenging those in their 50’s and 60’s to intentionally assess and define the pertinent issues, priorities and goals which will help them make intelligent decisions in establishing vital futures. The author provides charts, raises questions, and gives examples of how others have traveled the successful road to retirement. I heartily endorse this excellent, common-sense, challenging and very warm and human little book which offers a practical course of action for those looking to gain a hope-filled vision of what creative retirement can hold for them!

    Covers what many retirement books don’t–the personal journey, October 13, 2008

    David Borchard and Pat Donohoe have created a must-have guide for those 50 and older as they shape their “retirmenent” years. There are plenty of fine books and sources about the financial,geographic, and recreational opportunities of our later years, but The Joy of Retirement is unique. It explores the internal journey, our stories, our true passions, our unfinished business, and how we make behavioral shifts as our senior years. The assessment tools designed by Borchard give a whole picture of the self in retirement and his experience with hundreds of clients in retirement brings interest and depth to his major points.

    I love this book.

    Perhaps aging is really very simple. Because most of the guidance this book offers is just common sense solutions to the problems of growing old. And since one of the by-products of aging is (one can’t help hoping) common sense, then it goes without saying, why bother to read this book?

    Sorry, but the authors’ rather simplistic style and approach put me off.

    hmmm….lots of words that don’t say much. Reminds me of the education textbooks of my youth. Not a good thing!

    Seriously, look before you buy. You may find more useful content than I did. From my perspective, this book had little to offer.
