Publisher's Summary

Retirement has changed, and Robin Ryan, America's most trusted career coach, is here to guide you through your retirement reinvention.

In Retirement Reinvention, America's most trusted career coach shatters the myths that retirement is the end of work, that it is a time of decline, that new career opportunities are for young people alone, and that people work during their retirement only because they need money. 

The old model of retirement is changing, and now the majority of today's retirees intend to keep working in the next phase of their lives. In this helpful new career-focused guide, Robin Ryan offers practical advice for the next act of your life and career. Robin Ryan has been helping clients land their dream jobs for over 20 years. Now she shows you how to take the skills that you have been honing for your entire career and put them to use to lead a more meaningful and fulfilling retirement. 

Full of actionable advice, Retirement Reinvention provides step-by-step instructions to help you leave your old career behind, pinpoint interests and skills, and define new, satisfying opportunities that will fit within the balance you want to strike between work and leisure. From starting a new business to shifting to the nonprofit sector to volunteering, Robin Ryan will guide you through your own retirement reinvention.

Includes a bonus PDF with exercises

Redundant and unhelpful

It makes its one valuable point ("stay active and involved") very early on-- then repeats it over and over. One would expect the author to know her material well enough to make it interesting, but whatever the author's other skills, she's not a natural reader.

Annoyingly Redundant

Although it liked the ideas and stories of retirees, I could not complete because the author continually repeated the same concepts and explanations.
