An extremely well-written, understandable, and comprehensive book on organizing and managing your retired life in an increasingly complicated world. The practical advice on mental and physical fitness, as well as nutrition, makes this an essential reference book for today's seniors. --Herbert M. Schub, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine
I've had the good fortune to travel with the Parkers who are, in the classic formulation, boon companions. The travel chapter alone is so laden with useful (and often overlooked) money-saving tips, a single trip would likely save many times the cost of the book. I make this recommendation from a background of a quarter-century of ownership of a chain of Chicago travel agencies and as travel editor for ABC Radio, San Francisco. The Parkers know how to enjoy life! --Lee Rodgers, ABC/San Francisco
