Another woman with a "Masters in English" (which she emphasized) trashed my book How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free.
I suggested that the woman search "best retirement books" and look at the Number 1 retirement book that appears on left in the images.
According to these images How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free is the best retirement book out there. Note that my The Joy of Not Working is also in the top 10 of best retirement books.
I also suggested that the woman refer to my website How to Retire Happy where on the homepage I list 30 major websites and blogs that have written about How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free in a positive way.
