If I were to judge the book by its cover, I'd say it contains the answers I am looking for! (I've read a few other books by Larry and his co-authors; they are very solid.)

If you went by the cover, you should have been able to stop reading these books at:

Thanks Larry, looking forward to the read. Great having a book focused on those of us just a few years out for retirement and then the transition.

I'm about half-way through the book, and IMHO it is the best book thus far from Larry (and Kevin Grogan).

Many retirement books give great info on the financial side of retirement, the nuts & bolts of accumulating, then withdrawing from your retirement portfolio, but this book starts out on the "mental" side of retirement. First couple of chapters addresses that aspect of retirement. In reading this forum, it is evident to me that many questions about retirement actually have nothing to do with the finances of retirement, more the mental issues about a new adventure. That area is addressed in the book.

Glad enjoying. Here's a piece that appeared in my local STL paper today on the book and making the same point you made.

From Larry's link above:

".....Swedroe himself, who’s 67, is not ready to put his feet up just yet.

“I’ll retire the day it becomes work,” he said. “For me, the job is fun and it keeps me intellectually stimulated, and talking to people about their goals is very rewarding.”

He says he has told Buckingham that he expects to work full-time at least until age 72. With luck, he’ll distill his sound advice into another book or two before then...."


Good to know you aren't retiring soon, Larry!

I went to my pulmonary doc today, and he said he will have to work until he is 85 because he married a woman who is 20 years younger. He is currently 78, so he will be around awhile. Seems like some doctors and academics can work well beyond the norm. Doc said he will retire when wife qualifies for Medicare. I think honestly he likes the challenges. Dang guy has more hair on his head than I had when I was 40! Better genes than mine, I suppose. A lot smarter, too.

Just ordered the kindle version! I've been looking forward to this one.

I hope I don't find it too disturbing though, since I just retired a couple weeks ago.....

I've placed a hold on the book for when it comes in at my local library. I'm looking forward to reading it.
