“Williams offers solid retirement planning advice using examples from the life of Michelangelo. His advice is easily digestible without being dumbed down. Appendices include questionnaires that will likely aid those ready to start planning. An engaging guide aimed at retirees but packed with practical advice that even 20- and 30-somethings might use.”
--Kirkus Reviews

“This well-written, comprehensive guide paints retirement in a new light. Williams has done a masterful job of presenting an elegantly constructed, comprehensive, unbiased view of what readers need to think about, personally and financially, as they head toward retirement.”
--Foreword Reviews

“Gary Williams has successfully tackled a daunting task in his book The Art of Retirement. In an easy- to-understand way, he addresses the significant financial issues many of us will face as we go through life into retirement and, equally important, how to enjoy the quality of life that truly counts. It is both as simple as anyone could ask for, and through many cross-references, as sophisticated as anyone could want. This is a terrific resource told in a very reader-friendly, yet powerful, storytelling way!”
—Colin Brown
President and CEO, JM Family Enterprises, Inc.

In addition to being a great book, there is a charitable component that inspired Gary to write the book: 100% of the book’s profits will be divided amongst four charities, the Brigance Brigade Foundation, Augie’s Quest, the Maryland SPCA, and the Y of Central Maryland. “I look forward to the book signing and continuing to raise awareness for the causes that are important to me,” Gary says of the upcoming book signing.
