How important is retirement to you?

You are living in one of the most exciting, opportunity-laden periods of your life.

Your generation is reaching retirement at a rate of ten thousand per day. This so-called second chapter of life presents a host of possibilities and challenges that can serve to enrich your life.

     “There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries.” Shakespeare

I am writing a book geared to your interests and unique status in life. Before I publish this gem I want to be sure that the issues in the book are relevant. So I’d like to hear from those of you who have opinions, ideas or feedback.

The book contains strategies, techniques, philosophies and tools for living a full, rich, satisfying second chapter of life. I gathered the material from a large number of interviews with selected retirees.

It is being written in a fictional format because research show this is the most effective way to reach the people most affected by the impact of the changes taking place at the traditional age of retirement.

It is the story of a group of people participating in a retirement seminar on a luxury cruise ship, sailing from Miami to Barcelona.  

Please send your comments to

In appreciation, for your help I’d be happy to send you a copy of “5 Keys to Retirement Happiness.” which has some of the preliminary ideas in the book.
