Editorial Reviews


Sections on developing a retirement portfolio and a withdrawal strategy are certainly valuable for those who have already retired. (Lynn O'Shaughnessy 2009-01-01)

Very highly recommended for everybody seeking an alternative to their currently dissatisfactory career and better, more fulfilling lives. (Midwest Book Review 2009-01-01)

In 2001, Bob Clyatt retired at the age of 42. But then the stock market tanked. After a year of fretting, he found his solution: part-time work that he actually enjoyed. In his new book, Work Less, Live More, Clyatt writes about how others can semi-retire early, too. (Motley Fool, Rule Your Retirement newsletter 2009-01-01)

[Bob Clyatt] reconsidered his withdrawal rate, revised his spending plans, reconsidered part-time work and wrote about the whole process in his book, Work Less, Live More. (MSN Money 2009-01-01)

Clyatt backs up his advice on investing and spending during retirement with solid academic research. (San Diego Union-Tribune 2009-01-01)

A guide about living outside the suffocating culture of consumption and overwork. (The Columbus Dispatch 2009-01-01)

Offers intelligent and practical tips on systematic savings, sensible spending and rational investing to make retirement money, even if it is not a fortune, last a lifetime. (Tribune Media Services 2009-01-01)

Terrific advice on how to safely reach semi-retirement while still in the prime of life. (Mark Goines 2009-01-01)

About the Author

Bob Clyatt pursued a 20-year career in information services and the Internet before semi-retiring at age 42 in 2001. Since then, he and his family live principally off income from their savings in the manner described in his book, Work Less, Live More: The New Way to Retire Early. He continues to work on a part-time basis and is an avid cruising sailor, amateur sculptor and a serious student of yoga. This rich set of activities is only possible because of the large amounts of time freed by working less.
