From the Back Cover
- Nancy Paradis, St. Petersburg Times, Florida
"To be sure, retirement books are a glutted field, but most focus on money and financial planning. They view the finish line as the last day of employment. That's where Zelinski's begins."

That said, this book is different and I feel compelled to sing its praises. The book's title indicates it is about how to be happy in retirement but it really is about so much more. How to be happy in general (not just in retirement), how to live the life you always wanted to live, how to live life in general and, most of all, how to find one's self and be true to it. And much much more. There are more nuggets of wisdom in this short simple book than in all the business books I have read over the past 30 years combined. Most of this wisdom we all are aware of already (though we forget or ignore it most of the time) but it is good to be reminded and to have it laid out so succinctly and in one easy to reference book.
If you are retiring or if you are in your 40's or 50's, read this book. Now. It could be life-changing.
The author could say in one paragraph what he takes to say in four pages.
He repeats himself over and over and over.
It was a good thing that it was a cheap book so I did not waste so much money.
