“Get this [retirement] book if you look forward to a retirement with 'zing!' ”
- Nancy Paradis, St. Petersburg Times, Florida

"A truly upbeat read! His seven-page list of
 'Activities for Your Get-a-Life Tree' will help you
 start and keep you active for a very long time."
- Life Planning Network

"I would not hesitate to share this
book with friends, colleagues, or clients"
- Nancy Miller, Quintessential Careers Book Reviews

"How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free:
The advice ranges from "move to a college town"
to "plant your get-a-life tree and watch it grow and grow".
But the real enjoyment comes from the cartoons, and
the quotes such as, "the time you enjoy wasting
is not wasted time".
- The Telegraph, Calcutta, India

“To be sure, retirement books are a glutted field, but most focus on
money and financial planning. They view the finish line as the last day
of employment. That’s where Zelinski’s [retirement book] begins.”
- Jonathan Chevreau, National Post

"Next to the Bible it may be the most inspiring book I have read."
- Richard Thibeault, Pointe Claire, Quebec
