Don Draayer addresses the issues about retirement that haunt those of us who are still serving as education leaders, but know that we are approaching the time when we will walk a new path. The insights of 300 educators help us to consider the practical and philosophical issues we all need to face as we look forward to this next phase of our lives. 'Retirement Straight Talk' is a must read for senior education leaders!

Dr. Draayer's new book, Retirement STRAIGHT TALK, is a most impressive work. It is comprehensive in that it covers all aspects of retirement, and the anecdotal material gleaned from over 300 educators gives the reader much food for thught--particularly with regard to setting our priorities and maintaining a healthy life balance. We do indeed 'create and live our own retirement stories,' and Dr. Draayer's book helps to make the retirement journey a little easier (and more enjoyable) for all of us. Highly Recommended!
