Reviews - What do customers think about Beginning Anew: Reflections for Retired People (Reflections for the Family)?
An inspiring and funny book--a must for any retiree! May 13, 2002
Kevin Axe's short reflections on retired life are wonderful! I keep this book at my bedside and no matter what page I open up to, I read exactly what I need to hear that day.
A few of his stories brought tears to my eyes like the one about a prayer he found in his mother's prayer book after her death. Many others made me laugh like his story of one of his professors who learned to snow ski at age 74. All of the stories are filled with practical, non-preachy advice about retirement. I highly recommend it for retirees and those who love them.
Mr. Axe has a gift for challenging our paradigms about life Feb 12, 2002
I am not even retired and I found this book very interesting and inspiring! Mr. Axe truly has a gift for weaving together humor, insight and thought provoking quotes to challenge our paradigms about life over the hill. I highly recommend it for anyone at a crossroads in their life or who knows someone entering their golden years. Buy this book, you won't be disappointed!
