I have just finished reading your book How to Retire Happy, Wild and
Free for the second time.
It was recommended to me by a coworker who retired a couple of years
ago, since I also hope to retire as soon as possible.
I must say that considering the subject matter of your book I didn't
expect to find so much more than instructions or suggestions on how to approach
Next to the Bible it may be the most
inspiring book I have read.
I read a lot and I usually highlight passages that I find inspiring
and wise. Well this book has more colour and scribbled notes in it
than any other.
I also love the way you share some of your reader's letters and comments
and as you seem to appreciate them which is also why I've decided to write you this note. I
hope to put in practice much of what I've learned from your book and read others as I enjoy
the way you write as well.
At the very end of the book you wrote, and I wrote at the bottom of that
Of course you have given me many good ideas and one of them is writing.
I have always had a desire to write more and hopefully get something published one day
(many false starts so far) but haven't yet found that I have sufficient material or
inspiration to be able to complete anything worthwhile.
Anyway I look forward to read more from you - even this book for a third
Thank You and God Bless.
