Not Dead Yet: ...and One or Two Other Good Things about Retirement

3.6  ·  Rating details ·  5 Ratings  ·  1 Review
From a man who has written more than his share of feel-good self-help books, Not Dead Yet, a wry, perceptive, and hilarious account of the retirement years, debunks the AARP-originated myth of ruddy-faced seniors grinning and golfing their way into a golden sunset, and offers some helpful (if cynical) advice about finding a new purpose in later life.

Recommends it for: Older folks.
Recommended to Rich by: Son.
Most excellent. He calls it bathroom reading, I used it to go to sleep for several nights. Quite funny (some laugh out loud and wake the wife) thought provoking and in my case appropriate. Couldn't recommend it more for soon to be or already retired. The younger folks might not appreciate it as much.
I'm keeping it for browsing through again.
