My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great practical tips for figuring out who you are at your core after the life-shifting change of retirement. I’m not nearing retirement myself but I can see how these tools and exercises, with foundation in Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, will be useful in that circumstance. Additionally, Cameron’s advice in this book is also practical for anyone who has had a huge change in their life and feels the need to examine the question, “Who am I now?” The stories of how others have used Cameron’s practices are inspirational and geared toward keeping the reader on track. This book would make a great gift for someone on the cusp of retirement.

As we search for a sense of purpose in retirement, we do well to get in touch with the small things that matter to us. Many times, the larger answers that feel elusive are actually closer than we think, present before us in many small clues.
