Reviews - What do customers think about Retirement Is Not for Sissies?

THERE IS LIFE AFTER RETIREMENT  Jan 22, 2009
Thank you David for a Inspirational, Insightful and Instructional walk into and through retirement. I give your book Retirement is not for Sissies 5 stars and highly recommend it to others. I have joined a small group of retires and the book will be a resourse to us.

Mearl L. Bradley,
 
Looking to retire  Aug 27, 2008
This book was different that I anticipated. It was more preachy and less "how to" than it's ilk. I don't think I'd recommend it to others. It certainly did not reflect the title.
