EARLY BIRD: A Memoir of Premature Retirement.
Edition: 1st trade paperback printing.
New York: Simon & Schuster, (2006). A book which is both funny and sad. The author, burnt out at twenty-eight, decides to retire early. He travels to southern Florida, where he moves in with an elderly piano teacher at a retirement community that is home to thousands of senior citizens. This is "an irreverent, hilarious, and ultimately warmhearted account of Rodney's journey deep into the heart of retirement. Rodney struggles for acceptance from the senior citizens he shares a swimming pool with and battles with cranky octogenarians who want him off their turf." Includes a brief epilogue not found in the hardcover edition. 241 pp. ISBN: 0-743270584.
Condition: Near fine (some toning to the pages)
