Reviews - What do customers think about The Spirit of Retirement: Creating a Life of Meaning and Personal Growth?
Great pre-retirement or post-retirement reading! Dec 5, 2007
Whether you are nearing retirement or recently retired, this is a great book if you are wondering about how to spend your retirement years. The book includes some wonderful James A. Autry poems and is very consistent with his other works such as "Love and Profit, the Art of Caring Leadership" which I also recommend. As the title suggests, this book really is about the "spirit" of retirement and really is focused on the psychological challenges of retirement rather than the financial issues.
