"Written in a friendly, understanding tone, this volume is both inspirational and realistic. It addresses practical issues like money and provides an extensive list of resources for getting started and formulating ideas... The authors also explain what is perhaps the ultimate incentive for staying engaged and active: it's good for health and longevity. And they offer a host of tips for staying as healthy as possible so would-be-retirees can fully enjoy this fantastic stage of life."--Publishers Weekly
