5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational reading for those about to retire, 3 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free: Retirement Wisdom That You Won't Get from Your Financial Advisor (Paperback)
With eight weeks to go before retirement, I needed some help! My financial plans were in place (sort of. as much as they can be these days), but I had no idea about how would I cope with colleagues no longer around, missing the workplace water-cooler moments and no longer having a very busy 24/7 work schedule. I felt pretty foolish that I'd had 40 years to prepare for this, but had no plans about how to spend the next phase of my life. This inspirational, funny and very readable book by Ernie Zelinski has given me a template for how to get the most out of my retirement. The premise is that not to plan for an active retirement is to set yourself up for a difficult one. To be bored is to retire from life, so the book takes you through practical planning to establish a lifestyle that is adventurous, rewarding and exciting. One minor downside is that it is written for the North American market, but the basic wisdom is pretty much global. Anybody about to retire should read this book.
