A well thought out and well written resource. I found the self directed quizzes useful and insightful. Clearly, the author knows his business and has provided advice and direction to a multitude of retirees from various backgrounds, each with varying degrees of self insight. Retirement can be a bit of a shock to some and is a major transformation for most. After reading this book, I'm certain many will find the transition just a little smoother.
