My feeling is that you should never retire! In order to stay alive you should work until you die! Successful and timely planning, not for retirement but for rechargement is the main thrust of this book. It will show you step by step how I did it, along with dozens of intriguing case examples of 'others' experience. When The Anti-Retirement Book does its job, it will help you structure a plan tailored to your personal circumstances and needs that will, as you get older, make you more productive, exciting, and have fun filled years in the future. You can design your own destiny on your own terms and within your own time frame. This book is geared to people well in advance of the so called "retirement" age. It makes it clear that the main problem for most people heading there is not financial. At least equally important is how to occupy one's time in an organized way with productive physical and mental activity. And most important, how to plan well to make this happen. Norman Mailer put it simply enough: "Boredom slays more of existence than war." If boredom is retirement's arch enemy, its antidote is diversity. Studies bear out repeatedly that variety sparks interest and excitement. It also presents the challenge of change. Excerpted from www.babyboomers-seniors.com, review by Anita Finley: Many Years ago, I met Robert Levison and was quite impressed with him and the powerful influence he had in his community of Boca Raton. After he wrote this book, I knew why I admired him so much. This is his philoshophy: "My feeling is that you should never retire! In order to stay alive you should work until you die!" ...In writing the retirement book, Bob approaches the project with missionary zeal. "It has long depressed me" Levinson says, "to see so many fine people who could be happily and productively employed wasting what could be the best years of their lives." This in a nutshell is the basic theme of the book. Bob's vast experience qualifies him to review, assess and help readers tailor to their personal needs and desires . . . the wealth of fruitful options accessible. Bob Levison is a management and marketing specialist. But more than that, he is a RETIREMENT specialist. "When you get the urge" he believes, "follow it." This explains why he has many careers. Excerpted from a column by Humberto & Georgina Cruz Driving from Vero Beach to Port Everglades to go on a cruise, we had only 30 minutes to stop in Boca Raton and see Robert Levinson at Lynn University. ...as he talked, his brown eyes gleaming, we could sense he was right in his element, feeling just enough pressure to get a thrill out of it. I've talked to doctors about this. In order to live a good life you must always have a degree of pressure on you," said Levinson, who at 78 - he turns 79 on Friday - has served as a vice president of the Boca Raton shcool for more than 12 years. What Levinson refers to as "pressure" other people might simply call "structure," or having a specific activity at a specific time. And many retirees may find enjoyment in leisure activities and hobbies Levinson doesn't much care about. But none of this takes away from the wisdom of his advice: Always be thinking of what you'll do next, including when you reach the traditional "retirement" age. Even if it isn't work, know what it is you want to do, or you may find yourself without a reason for living.

RETIREMENT IS NO LONGER THE STORY OF OLD AGE. IT IS THE STORY OF LONG LIFE. According to US census data, the average person spends nearly twenty years in the post-career phase of their lives. Luckily for those currently entering this phase, the traditional concept of retirement is quickly becoming outdated. We are at the dawn of the anti-retirement movement--a movement that assumes participants bring the same energy and enthusiasm to their post-career life that they brought to their career. But every movement needs leaders, and the anti-retirement movement is finding two of its leaders in authors Patti and Milledge Hart. In The Resolutionist, Patti and Milledge identify twelve resolutions that can provide a framework for your continued growth, engagement, and adventure after you've left the workplace. Using examples from their own sometimes-bumpy journey from C-suite executive to a relevant and fulfilling anti-retirement life, Patti and Milledge suggest options for how to invest your resources--time, energy, wisdom, finances--to find your passions, develop new metrics for success, and surround yourself with kindred spirits. You'll walk away from this book enthusiastic about becoming a Resolutionist and inspired to make the next phase the best phase of your life. Welcome to the anti-retirement movement!
