This book includes 65 essays, with practical advice from noted authors, retirement experts, and people who have used their retirement as an opportunity to turn their personal dreams into a reality, whether it s starting a nonprofit, writing a novel, or inventing new technologies to help others.

Zelinski ("BE Happy While You're Alive Because You Are a Long Time Dead"), Jeri Sedlar and Rick Miners (Don't Retire, REWIRE!" ®), Nancy K. Schlossberg ("Will You Pass or Flunk Retirement?") and former President, Jimmy Carter. For everyone reaching this milestone stage of life, this book celebrates the idea that the best is yet to come!
