About the Author:

Dave Bernard is a California born and raised author and blogger with an extensive 30 year career in the Silicon Valley.

Dave has written more than 300 blogs for US News & World "On Retirement" and his personal blog "Retirement-Only the Beginning".

Candid feedback and thousands of comments from readers has given him a unique glimpse into the realities and challenges that all retirees will ultimately face, inspiring his book "I Want To Retire!-Essential Considerations for the Retiree to Be."

He recently published his first venture into fiction with "Tales from Technology Gone Wild", a collection of four creepy short stories.

His other works include "Are you Just Existing and Calling it a Life?" and "Navigating the Retirement Jungle."

Dave was a contributing writer for the books "65 Things to do when you Retire" ("Positive Aging - Old is the New Young") as well as "65 Things to do when you Retire - TRAVEL" ("Travel to Discover your Family Heritage").

He has been quoted in numerous articles and magazines including The Times of India, Prevention Magazine and Erickson Tribune.

Dave lives in sunny California with his wife, two cats, and a passion for the San Jose Sharks hockey team.

Review:

In just fourteen short chapters Dave Bernard again is the cheerleader for the reader as he or she approaches retirement.  I've followed Bernard's blog, Retirement-Only the Beginning for about a year and find this book condenses a long series of blogs about retirement into essential topics. The ultimate goal of the book is to help the future retiree find his passion.
What is on your list?  Read Dave Bernard's "I Want to Retire!" and use it as a guide to create passion and meaning in your retirement years. ~ Warren Lieberman, author of 65 and Alive 

I heartily recommend Dave Bernard's I WANT TO RETIRE! It's a practical handbook that shines at raising the non-financial retirement questions everyone needs to answer. A positive, matter-of-fact tone prevails throughout. My favorite pages were simply lists of questions to help the reader discover personal truths about him- or herself, to help design a retirement life that suits. Be sure to add this book to your retirement bookshelf. ~ Andy Landis, author of Social Security: The Inside Story

I particularly appreciated that the book puts the focus on the psychological aspects of retirement rather than the financial aspects--there are plenty of books that cover that already. Because the author is also contemplating retirement he appears to be especially suited to asking lots of questions about what is to come--and then providing a decent amount of answers to those questions to help guide us readers to find our own. ~ Kathy Gottberg, Author, Writer, Adventurer
