The Library Journal gave The Successful Retirement Guide a "starred" review, commenting:
"The beauty of retiree Price's book is its simplicity—one can pick a chapter and find a latent interest that could be developed, from building a bird house to quitting smoking. Price gives the reader the opportunity to do that by providing the idea, the opportunity potential, and the resources for getting started. . . . it's an inspirational guide that will provoke people of all ages to engage in new ventures and discover what life can offer."
