Marvin Tolkin is the kind of neighbor you wish for - a man so comfortable with where he is in the realms of post working years - that he is able to take away all of the anxiety about thinking about those years when most people think they must stop working. But in today's economy, when elder people are being sought for the work force to replace those holes created by the untrained or the unenthusiastic or the victims of our multiple wars, this little book is a special guide for making those plans for a life of leisure a reality.
Tolkin has been there and knows how to guide us all there - to that place where health and finances are secure in the time when most people are facing near poverty of thought and finances. He does this not by a series of rules and regulations, but by sharing his own common sense approach to 'retirement planning'. He is a fine writer with a terrific sense of humor - a factor that helps the non-believer jump on his wagon and reap the benefits. This is a dandy little book that likely will become a best seller - given the fact that the baby boomers must cope with the messages within the covers of this book. Read this for enjoyment, for wisdom, and for sound and caring advice! Grady Harp, April 10
