This book apparently is intended to help persons to look forward to retirement and to plan for it. Many wait until the day for retirement arrives before they give much thought to it. As a result, they often feel lost and unhappy. Those who have planned for what can be one of the most enjoyable parts of the span of life can find many things that can keep them busy and happy and perhaps as productive as at any time of their life. The author of this book sets forth some interesting philosophy on this subject, and he makes his points with few wasted words and yet with a style of presentation which is interesting and provocative.
