To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Thank you Ernie, I have always been excitable and consider myself a bit of an adventurer/explorer for the world - so I was worried that people might not “See me” anymore when I retire next year at 60, and that I might just become the old lady up the road. You have reminded me of all the things I have back-burnered over the years and you have given me lots of great tips and advice - so watch out world I am going to treat my new job (translate that as life) as the “University of Dora” (my nickname ) and I shall go kicking, laughing, hang gliding , modelling (read life model!!!!) etc. etc. through the next 50 years and see just where that gets me.........
Before leaping into the void of retirement it's an alternative view to help you decide what you want, but not necessarily if you can afford it. You may have guessed that I've not yet decided whether to stay or go, but it has opened my mind to partial retirement. Plenty of tips from the American author, so here's one from me, if you need to fill your time volunteering, what's the difference with working? Start planning it 5 years before you go. Anyone seen a UK version, I've another 3 years to hang around?
I bought this book for hubby a few years ago. He gave it away, so I bought the Kindle edition for myself as I approach retirement. Lots of great ideas and inspirational quotes! I have 59.5 working days do go before I retire and am looking forward to putting some of his ideas in to practice.
I needed to do some research before considering retirement. This is the perfect book to help you plan for life after work. I would recommend it anyone who needs great advice on how to enjoy a happy & fulfilled retirement, it has loads of brilliant ideas.
This is a fabulous book that’s a pleasure to read. It reaffirms all that you know to be true about enjoying life while you can and the importance of those you love. I’ve bought 2 friends this book now to encourage them to make the decision to retire early and run free!!
