"This little gem of a book offers sage advice." —The New York Times

With Americans living longer, healthier lives, the conventional idea of retirement is obsolete. Millions of Americans are working past the age of sixty-fiveónot because they have to, but because they want to. Many, like Marika and Howard Stone, discover second careers, start their own businesses, or go back to school.

Based on the popular website www.2young2retire.com, Too Young to Retire offers inventive and exciting retirement alternatives to help readers find their labors of love, inner activists, or how to make a home away from home. Enlightening exercises and workbook pages as well as a comprehensive list of publications, home exchange organizations, and websites are included to assist readers in making meaningful choices. For those who arenít ready to throw in the towel, Too Young to Retire is the essential resource for discovering what comes next.

This little gem of a book offers sage advice. (The New York Times)

Written with wit and invincible optimism, Too Young to Retire offers resources of the intellect, conscience, and soul to turn the last half of life into the reward we spent the first half working to find. (Theodore Roszak, author of Longevity Revolution)
