Item description for Retire in Style: 60 Outstanding Places Across the USA and Canada by Warren R. Bland...

Seventy-six million American and 10 million Canadian "baby boomers" born between 1946 and 1964 are moving toward retirement in an era of increasing affluence and mobility. Providing information on 60 of the communities that are most rich in amenities across North America, this handy sourcebook guides retirees toward outstanding places to spend their golden years. Careful consideration was given to the final 12 criteria covered for each place---landscape, climate, quality of life, cost of living, transportation, retail services, health care, community services, cultural activities, recreational activities, work/volunteer activities, and crime---and each review includes a discussion of each characteristic as well as a city map and climatic table. Structured regionally rather than alphabetically, this revised and updated edition enables readers to search similar options based on general areas in both the United States and Canada.

Reviews - What do customers think about Retire in Style: 60 Outstanding Places Across the USA and Canada?

More of the same  Jan 12, 2008
These retirement books all make the same assumptions about the readers. When you assume you make an.....
Very limited in scope, the title says it all. A good conversation piece for those who desire that lifestyle.
The small folk cannot retire in Style  Sep 16, 2007
1. The American cities reviewed are unaffordable for a middle-income person unless one is ready to accept less safe locations.
2. We ended up retiring in style in South America where our pension makes us live in comfort, without snow or extreme summer temps and relative safety.
There are many locations outside the USA where one could retire in style, modernity and safety with from- modest-to-average pensions. (Including medica facilities)
Pretty good, but ...  Sep 4, 2007
Limited number of places, reduced even more by the number of Canadian sites included. I like the format -- all the data grouped together. Would like to see this expanded into several regional books, with more cities added.
Lot of good info  Jan 4, 2007
This book is very comprehensive about the information it includes such as the quality of factors such as mass transit, health care, the arts. I enjoyed reading about many of the places it included but wish it had photos of the places. Also, it seemed like almost every place in it was a college town like Madison, Fayetteville (AR), Austin, State College, etc. It also would have been nice if it included all areas of the country. They seemed to be grouped like 3 in Arkansas, several in central Texas, none in most of the plains states. Also, when it gave costs for 3 bedroom homes, it didn't include the square footage. A 3-bedroom home could be a 900 square foot home or 2500 square foot home. Without square footage, it was hard to know how expensive homes really are.
