I bought this as a joke present, for Dad - IT IS NOT - It is a really useful fact book that i know he will find very useful. I havent given it to him yet as I am now reading it every night as the contents are not limited to retirement only, alot of really usefull stuff I am learning about now. TOP BUY...and I rarely say that.

Bought this for my Dad as a jokey retirement present - while we've also had a good laugh over it, it was a bit more serious and somber than we expected (particularly the chapters on "dealing with changing emotions" and "planning your funeral"). Bit of a strange book in the sense that it's a bit too serious (and depressing) at stages to be too much of a joke gift; but at the same time, I'm not sure I can entirely see the market for a book for older people about planning their funeral and dealing with their own dementia...

Probably too serious for a joke present- bought for my Dad as a retirement present. Didn't see the funny side really but is working his way through it. Not sure residential homes and choosing your coffin is what you want to think about at 65!!

This was brought as a gift and it was meant to be funny. It turns out to be very practical though. :-)

I bought this as a gift. I thought it would be about doing things and enjoying yourself. It's filled with practical advice about growing old, caring and which is the best coffin. Fortunately my brother-in-law saw the funny side.

A brilliant idea from Haynes. Have not yet read this book thoroughly but I like the contents and style of the publication. Have a few questions about retirement that I want answered. 4 stars and not 5 as should come with online resource CD/DVD that might expand the use of this interesting publication.

I like the style of writing, which is humourous on occasions and obviously written by someone who knows. The content is very comprehensive and although sections are not long, there is sufficient information to reassure and provide points of reference. Much more readable than some books on the market

I wanted to give a retiring colleague something useful, so that he can prepare for his retirement in just over a hundred days time. This is a great gift.
