PLEASE NOTE: Only because I can't give this book a 3.5 rating, I have given it a 3. FTC Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via in exchange for a fair and honest review. Opinions expressed are mine. Because I had not read Len Richman’s previous memoir, Raindrops Glimpses Moments: An Unconventional Memoir of an Unplanned Journey, I didn’t know what to expect from reading Shivers & Signposts: The Journey Continues. One thing I now know: I wish Len Richman had written Shivers & Signposts before I hit the road on my retirement journey. So many gems of wisdom, expectations, truths, and more fill the pages. Len’s writing style is comfortable and shines with a sense of integrity in everything he believes about his journey thus far. Yet, now and then, the educator in Len manages to squeeze between the paragraphs and you sense a classroom is opening up. I believe this is part and parcel of Len’s excitement about helping the rest of us as we advance through the years to the point of retirement and beyond. I highly recommend this book to anyone considering their future beyond the workplace. Some ideas for enjoying this book on many levels: --Purchase it (or win it in the giveaway) for yourself even if you’re not close to retirement. It would be good to read with some planning for retirement in mind. --Buy as a gift for a friend or relative who is planning to retire near term. They will thank you! --Without reading the first of Len’s two books, I’m going to suggest both as a college graduation gift for someone. That way they can ease into the idea of working several years before needing either one.

Experienced taught us to be us I LOVED to read real stories. There is something so special to learn more about the authors if the book is based in real story. Shivers & Signposts taught us experienced that the author shared about his past life and who become today. I always LOVED to learn the humble beginnings. It is uplifting to read and learn from their experienced. This book is different from the books that I usually read but I still enjoyed my moment while reading Shivers & Signposts. It is a short story but full of knowledge that we can apply in our daily life. It is also gives us motivation to achieve our goals and dreams in life. This is one reason that I LOVED reading real story. I hope you get a chance to read this short but amazing book. Disclosure: I received the paperback copy of the book for read. My review is 100% honestly mine.

Shivers and Signposts is an entertaining story. This book is a memoir but to be honest it is also more. Many situations the author goes through, many of us can identify with. The author is very opened and honest about his feelings as he goes through the journey of growing older On the more critical side, I found this book like reading a textbook. It could be dry and very boring at times. I did have trouble reading this book. It was great that it was a clean book. Nothing inappropriate in it. Overall I believe this is a good three star book. It has both positives and negatives. I received this book from the author through iReads book tour in exchange for an honest review.

This is a completely different kind of book for me .. the cover drew me in. The tale of Len’s life which continues on from his previous memoir Raindrops Glimpses Moments … it really gives us a vision into his thought processes. Is age just a number or a state of mind? It’s an interesting concept that he get’s a ‘shiver’ as the regular thoughts of getting older strike and then ‘signposts’ appear to guide him in another direction. There are lots of words of wisdom and quotes. The enthusiasm with which he lives his life is quite staggering, whether he has accomplished everything by means of good luck, privilege or sheer hard work I’m not sure but he seems to have travelled extensively. He is determined to have a rewarding, enlightening life .. no doubt he will continue to do so. It creates a basis from which to start a discussion on the merits of good health .. there are many things in life we may like to accomplish but that isn’t always in our own hands .. good luck to Len for the future. Thanks to the author and iRead Book Tours for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.
