Editorial Reviews

Deborah Bigelow
The beauty of retiree Price's book is its simplicity—one can pick a chapter and find a latent interest that could be developed, from building a bird house to quitting smoking. Price gives the reader the opportunity to do that by providing the idea, the opportunity potential, and the resources for getting started. . . . it's an inspirational guide that will provoke people of all ages to engage in new ventures and discover what life can offer.
Book Review Editor
...a wealth of information to help identify the activities that will help you remain intellectually, socially and physically engaged with life ... ideas and opportunities to explore ways to make your retirement a successful one....It is a book about learning, appreciating, growing, playing, making and giving back....
Mary Wilcox
For those who have the time, retirement can be a time of exploration of things we've always wanted to do, as well as the discovery of things we never imagined. This is the 'handbook' for new adventures in life long learning.
Mary Alice Wolf, Ed.D.
Kevin Price has put together a realistic yet creative guide to titillate even the most committed couch potato among us. First, he rightly points out that it is a "job" to use our cognitive, affective and physical capabilities lest we lose our stamina and the continuity of life flow. Even 90-somethings define their older years as a time of connection and vitality....There is no question that this is the most creative overview of potential interests to tweak your mind, body and spirit.
Axel Freudmann
Kevin Price has put together an extensive and thoughtful overview on how to leverage your past experience and combine it with your future aspirations so that you can take your life to another level. It is not really about retiring - it is a "how to" about rewiring your life so that it remains as or more meaningful than before.
