From Publishers Weekly
As a couple approaching retirement age, the authors came to the realization that "retirement was a great place to visit, but who in their right mind would want to live there?" And so they skipped the Sunbelt retirement and set out to start a new chapter in their lives, which involved the creation of a website (2young2retire.com) and the writing of this book to encourage others to stay in the workforce after 65. Written in a friendly, understanding tone, this volume is both inspirational and realistic. It addresses practical issues like money and provides an extensive list of resources for getting started and formulating ideas. Each chapter also includes a "try this" section, which provides simple and doable ideas for making small life changes on the way to achieving goals. And, indeed, the book does include 101 specific ideas for vocations and avocations to pursuecake decorator, computer tutor, ghostwriter, nanny, park ranger, wedding planner and many more. The authors also explain what is perhaps the ultimate incentive for staying engaged and active: its good for health and longevity. And they offer a host of tips for staying as healthy as possible so would-be-retirees can fully enjoy this fantastic stage of life.

I would recommend reading this book even if you think you have a life plan, it can only help make it better. I know my review is light on the substance of the book, go read it the investment is worth it, my point is money is important to retirement but if you don't know what to do with yourself then what's the point. This book helps you discover how to actually enjoy this time of your life.
This book is simply a list of potential jobs. You can get the same list at your local employment office or in your imagination. It's too lightweight and doesn't address the core issues of frustration and expansion, not diminishing of abilities.
