By Steve Ramm TOP 100 REVIEWER on July 8, 2014
At the huge Book Expo America trade show in New York in May I stopped by the booth for Sellers Publishing – the publisher of this book - their display of “age specific” titles caught my eye. This was one of the series which relates to decade or half-decade birthdays. Each has its own focus with short essays from folks you’ve heard of, and many you haven’t. Because I have friends who are now on social security, as well as those turning 70 this year, I chose two titles to review when I was offered review copies by the publisher. (The other title was “70 Things To Do When You Turn 70l”. You can see my review under that title here on Amazon.)

This volume (65 things) is 400 pages long. Ironically, the “70 Things to Do” book is just 304 pages long. I guess the publishers assume that the older you get the less time you have to read, since you should be out “doing” the things listed in the book!

Unlike the more-generic “70” book, this one concentrates on “Travel”. The 65 “experts” whose essays are here include actor Andrew McCarthy (best known as part of Hollywood’s “brat pack” in the 60s – who is only 51 years old but has a new career as a travel writer), Ed Perkins (who seems to be quoted in every travel article you read in a newspaper) and Andrew Collins, whose specialty is travel for LBGT folks. Most of the others were not previously known to me. Some of the short essay talk about permanently relocating while others talk about unusual places. And some are about the “attitude” of travelling. Don’t come here expecting many “place specific” ideas. And many discuss “world travel” which –if you’ve priced it lately – you know may not fall into the “affordable” category.

Most of the essays in THIS book are about “attitude” and doing things to make your life meaningful.

This book is full of ideas for those who are approaching retirement or who are already retired. The editor has done a really fine job of locating true authorities -- recognized and unknown -- and obtaining their participation in his book. First-person accounts of the joy of travel and discovery make up this book but what makes it really worthwhile is the broad diversity of ideas, many of them at low- or no-cost. It's up to the minute now (2013) providing the urls of blogs and websites of the contributors.

The only drawback is the format of the text. Perhaps it was designed for the Kindle and not reformatted for paper, but the large type and double spacing gives the misimpression of the book being less worthy than it actually is. There's a great deal of good information here!

Bought this for my mom who is quite the spunky retiree and she LOVES it! She tells me almost daily of the advice that she is putting into practice from the pages of this book!

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, why not make the most of it and if you like to travel...travel! Like any worthy endeavor, it is wise to do your homework first...learn from others, go to the professionals. I especially liked Sharon O'Neill's description of her "Thin Place" as a 13-mile strip of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. "Celtic tradition suggests there are places where the physical world and the spiritual world come so close that the distance between them is thin." We all need to find our own "Thin Place".

Interesting tidbits. Not all the stories relate to my situation though. Nice gift for a retiree but don't pay too much for it.
