Boyd Lemon shows you how he secured the best time of his life in Retirement and how you can do it too. Learn how to take life more slowly, notice and revel in the beauty of the world around you, most important, how to find and pursue your passion and live fully. Married or single, discover how to avoid the loneliness or episodic depression that many retirees suffer from. Too much leisure time is often an expressway to boredom, frustration and unhappiness. The author tells you how to avoid this unhappiness through a few steps that anyone can take. This Second Edition includes substantial new material based on new interviews, research and the author’s personal experiences: new chapters or sections on nutrition, preparing for the death of a spouse or partner, buying versus renting a home, building a retirement home and setting aside time to do nothing. The author has expanded substantially the chapters on Dealing with Loneliness, The Importance of Place, Controlling the Mind, Meditation, Learning and Growing, Spirituality, Adult Children, Friends and Establishing a Structure. What Reviewers Said About the 1st Edition “...thought-provoking tips.” “...reveals the ways we can all find meaning and joy in our golden years. This unique use of memoir makes the book a much more interesting read than the common guide.” “...so much helpful information on having a fulfilling life after finishing work.” “... amazing the insights in the book....” “One of the best books on this evolving and elusive destination! You will enjoy Boyd's engaging style, and learn from his experiences.” “I loved this book. Mr. Lemon is a wonderful author and shares his experiences in a very thoughtful and thorough way. I hope he follows this work up with another book detailing additional retirement and life experiences. BTW - My father loved the book too!” “Lemon gives very practical advice to his readers on many subjects.” “I found every page to be filled with inspiration and guidance.” “I found Boyd's book both thought provoking and freeing.”

About the Author:

After a stellar 40-year career as a top and nationally recognized attorney, Boyd Lemon discovered his passion, writing, and pursued it in the idyllic coastal town of Ventura, California; the literary, art and music scenes of Boston; a Bohemian year on the Left Bank in Paris; and finally by the bucolic rivers and forests of St. Marys, Georgia, where he lives with his dog Penny.

Review:

Retirement: A Memoir and GuideBy Boyd Lemon
5 out of 5 Stars"With heaping helpings of common sense, the author describes his own foibles honestly, and suggests ways for the reader to avoid falling into the same predicaments that he did.... The book contains seven sections, divided into 34 chapters, with a summary Guide for each section....You'll find suggestions and other possibilities to help steer you to a happier lifestyle. You'll have fun in the doing.... Having learned from his own inexperience, Mr. Lemon willingly shares his knowledge with the rest of us." San Francisco Review of Books
