- Still decades away from ever hoping to retire and the whole idea just makes you vaguely uneasy.

- Only a couple of years from retiring and you have begun actively fearing the prospect. What the heck am I going to do all day? Maybe I can never retire. I am too much of a Type A!

- Finally retired and your worst fears have been realized. A fish out of water, you are bored, anxious, and terribly unhappy.

You no longer need to worry or struggle! Tim McIntyre, a hard-core Type A who retired in his mid-forties from a high-powered career, still brimming with energy, has navigated those waters for you and is sharing his experiences so you can be prepared for this exciting phase of your life.

About the Author:

Tim McIntyre retired in 2004 from his position as president of Applied Systems after facilitating a successful sale of the company. At only forty-six years old, he made the unusual decision to fully retire to pursue other interests and simply enjoy free time. As a hard-driving Type A personality, this turned out to be a significant challenge. Visit Tim at Type-A-Lifestyle.com.

Review:

Debut author McIntyre is well-positioned to counsel the hard-charging, goal-oriented, perfectionist Type A personalities his book targets...What follows is his account of taking a very early retirement...and finding ways to fill his time with things that give broader meaning to his life. Along the way, in Type A fashion, he lays out a practical method for structuring the transition...(With the book) his good-natured, helpful nature wins out. --Kirkus Reviews
