Delightful and Insightful
Dr. Randy Birken | on Amazon.com August 5, 2007

Dr. Keith Barton's delightfully insightful book, Retirement is For Sissies, or How I Survived My Job, is a must read for baby boomers, a generation of Americans given great opportunities for education, enlightenment, and introspection. With retirement as a reality or contemplation, those born between 1946 and 1961 must make hard decisions, whether to live on their assets or remain productive within a social-economic society filled with new possibilities. Using his intuitive psychological background, Dr. Barton challenges traditional perceptions about retirement, and encourages a new attitude and philosophy to "become stewards of our time, talents, and resources and impart by example a legacy of selflessness and philanthropy."

Blending humor with perspicacity, Dr. Barton tackles topics with terse yet sprightly chapter titles such as "Maturity is not Mediocrity," Leap Before Your Creep," Don't Quit and Sit," and "I'm Not Old, I'm Bold." A boomer himself, Dr. Barton doesn't criticize those who get off the train of life to earn their "place in the sun," but encourages those to stay onboard "until the last whistle blows." A great read for a great generation.
