Bob - I have the new edition of your book. It's a honey...very well produced - Pretty Cover picture!

I think the new sub-title makes sense.

We're an early retirement audience so we see it thru our prism, but I think for most people ER is either beyond their reach or is too scary.

I know this will come as a surprise to some here but there are people who enjoy working and to be able to on a reduced level and on their own terms - is appealing to them!

Also, I think it jives well with what you are and reflects the main title.

That being said, I guess you could tweak it to something like "The Way to Semi or Early Retirement". or devote a new book for ER - "Retirement - It's not Just For Old Geezers Anymore"

Wish you much success...Got a book tour this time?

Thx, Danny.
I like the new title idea: ER - Not for Geezers Anymore... I'll see if I can get it past Marketing!

No tours this time around -- I think that is reserved for newbie authors and superstars. Still we did get some good crowds in the last time. Frankly I'd rather be home sculpting in the studio than braving the airports these days...

No new books for me, though. They're a ton of work and if I get a new idea I can just add it into the next edition. Nolo wants one every 2-3 years -- that's plenty for an ER/ESR's schedule!

Glad you found the book helpful. You've probably realized by now that most of the good ideas in the book came from people here.
