      It was okay, but nothing special. I'm glad I checked it out of the library and didn't waste my money on it.The advice was pretty obvious - you'll have a better retirement if you have friends and hobbies and stay healthy. And the author's bias was clearly toward "adventure retirement" - you're supposed to bicycle through New Zealand and run 5 miles a day and so on. Also, lots of nightlife - he was quite derogatory about the "early to bed, early to rise" lifestyle - yet, at the same time, he kept [...]

      This book inspired me sign up for a 2 week perfume making class in France! To volunteer at a great art festival! To get off the couch & "Just Do It!" I love the 300 ideas too! Great book.

    3. Gina says:

      I'm ready! Good advice and words of wisdom! Retirement her I come!

    4. Karenlambrecht says:

      This book started off well, but quickly devolved into blahblahblah. The author gets quite preachy about lifestyles for healthy living, without any medical qualifications. Much of this book you or I could have written based on health news of the last 20 years. Although there were a couple of nuggets of good in there, the book isn't worth the price of admission. It also isn't really for retirees, but more for the 30-40 age group. Sorry I spent my money on this.

    5. KG says:

      This was a really/REALLY helpful and inspiring book! All of the information was pretty common-sense, but it needs to be said and heard over/Over/OVER.cially if you are thinking of moving away from the traditional work-force. Some aspects sounded (I listened to the audiobook version!) like material was copy/paste repeated - but again - over/Over/OVER never hurts! I'd recommend this book to anyone who would like to give themselves permission to get out of the rat-race!

    6. Steph says:

      A bunch of this was common sense, but it’s still nice to have the reminder that retirement can begin at any age as long as you moderate your expenses. See, common sense. The author has a way of getting you motivated, but it’s clear he’s not hurting for money. Not everyone can spend all of their retirement traveling the world and biking through Europe - more’s the pity.

    7. Dave Erhard says:

      How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free (ISBN-10: 096941949X, ISBN-13: 978-0969419495) by publisher VIP BOOKS and author Ernie Zelinski is truly, as the subtitle states, "retirement wisdom that you won't get from your financial advisor." Retirement does not have to mean the end of life — in fact retirement can mean a whole new beginning to the life you never had time to explore. Author Ernie Zelinski shows that the key to enjoying an active and satisfying retirement is dependent on much more than [...]

      I’ve closely followed early retirement blogs and writings over the years, and had seen Zelinski’s books mentioned quite often. I finally got down to reading one. I was expecting something transcendent, having built up my expectations for a few years. What I got was a mixed bag. “How to Retire” was an excellent rah rah early retirement is good for you book. Zelinski lays out a lot of reasons for early retirement, focused almost entirely on how to spend your time. I most appreciated his li [...]

    9. Stephanie says:

      This book does not focus on the money aspect of retirement. It focuses on providing inspiration & motivation to dream about doing something significant for yourself and others when you actually become your own boss and march to your own drummer. I really appreciated that aspect of the book and could recommend it because of that alone. Chapter 9 was my favorite chapter, in fact I liked it so much I highlighted the pertinent points to go back and review over and over so I could remind myself t [...]

    10. Stephen says:

      I feel like Ernie Zelinski wrote this book just for me! Of course he did write it for people just like me. We’ve been carefully saving money and planning the financial part of our retirement for over 20 years but have given almost no thought to the question “what am I going to do with this all this money and all this free time once I do retire?” In recent years, not being able to answer this question well has been my main reason for staying in the workforce. There are countless financial p [...]

    11. Delores Thomas says:

      Ok you are going to retire sometime. We can assume you have some finances already set up. But what are you going to do with your time then? This book attempts to answer that question. He does a very complete job of showing how others have filled their time. And he has a very unique and funny view. To quote his closing chapter: The rest of your life begins now. It can be more than it has ever been. Your goal should be to enjoy everything in life that you can. It is a mistake not to. Let it be a w [...]

    12. Marcie says:

      This book offers great advice on how to ensure that your retirement years are happy and productive. It provides great advice on how to enjoy life doing what really matters to you, and encompasses all the things that make life worth living (interesting and creative pursuits, physical well-being, mental well-being, and the importance of having a network of people in your life. This book is worthwhile reading for anyone who is contemplating retirement.

    13. Gary says:

      This book would have been pretty good. He has some good quotes, humorous cartoons, as well as good advice. There are good lists of questions. The problem is that the book could have said the same thing if it had been about a third of the length. Consequently, you feel like you are having to wade through the book, rather than taking away nuggets.For more on this book, see my blog.

    14. Frank says:

      He could have made his point in a short magazine article. Anyone can pick examples to support their point of view, while ignoring examples that don't. The quotations in the margins of every page were distracting and annoying.

    15. Lynn says:

      Great non-financial retirement book. Definately a good read if your thinking about retirement.

    16. Cyndi says:

      I think this book had some good ideas, but it's really hard to tell due to the lack of organization and general need for editing.

    17. Mike says:

      Might as well admit it, I'm not going to finish this book. "Happy, wild, and free" is not really me anyway, so why would I become it in retirement?

    18. Cathryn Conroy says:

      This retirement book by Ernie Zelinski is different from most others in that it does NOT focus on how to save the ungodly amount of money you will need to live a life of leisure for potentially 30+ years. Instead, it focuses on what you will do with your time for those 30+ years. And that's exactly why I bought it because there are hundreds of books that deal with the money and very few that deal with the big question that we all must one day ask and answer: What the heck am I gonna do all day w [...]

    19. Karl Bloss says:

      While not a literary masterpiece, Zelinski engages the reader to think more about what he or she will do in retirement rather than whether one has enough money to do so. He also encourages the reader to consider retiring early. For me, it opened up a whole new thought process about retiring early. My wife and I even did the "Get A Life Tree" exercise and found it quite illuminating and exciting. If all you have done is put away money for retirement and not really thought seriously about what you [...]

    20. Frank says:

      I read the other reviews that are mixed and I guess I understand why. This reads more like a textbook / manual for the rest of your life so it is a bit detailed for some. I personally enjoyed it and found it to provide great advise and good blueprint for life in returement. I especially found the advice for spending your money unique and refreshing and on point. It's yours spend it and enjoy it, your kids will be fine and better off making there own way through life!Although it can drag at times [...]

    21. Betz Steichen says:

      It's never too early to be reading about retirement. It isn't just something that happens, you have to plan for it. Lots of insightful and practical ideas. This book has been around for a while but it is relevant and provides a practical approach. Ask yourself this, do you really want to work forever? Get started.

    22. Frances says:

      This is an eye opening book for those who don't think too much about retirement. It asked many relevant questions about what you really want out of the last years of your life and gives plenty of suggestions for those who need an idea where and how to start planning. The emphasis is not so much on money but on finding happiness.

    23. Carol Aselton Benoit says:

      Excellent book. Well worth reading for the soon to be retired. It deals with attitude and not the financial aspect. Let me quote from the final page of the book, ". . . retirement life is a game. Happy people are the players. Unhappy people are the spectators. Which would you like to be?" If you are close to or seriously considering retirement, turn you tv off and read this book.

    24. Elaine Jackson says:

      A great read for anyone at any age who may one day retire. Zelinski provides an optimistic viewpoint to retirement that will relax your financial anxiety and awaken the adventure and hidden youth within you. Read and enjoy.

    25. Glennie says:

      This was an excellent book on retirement. Not the financial aspect of it,, as in how much to save, and so forth. But the day-to-day, how will I fill my time, part of retirement. Lots of great advice, and many questions/exercises for you to think about what you really want to do for your 3rd act.

    26. Peter Atkinson says:

      Lots of good advice for new and soon-to-be retirees.

    27. Chris says:

      Good perspective, but got somewhat repetitive.

    28. Jim says:

      I found much of this book to be redundant, but there are many good ideas. The last 8 pages, in particular, were very worthwhile.

    29. Michael says:

      Great book. Very interesting indeed.

    30. Ellen Krohne says:

      Fun read for newly retired persons
