Reviews

“The main part of the book contains nine chapters which focus on the experiences of pre-retirement and post-retirement entrepreneurs in a number of developed countries … . will be particularly valuable to early-stage researchers, experienced academics, policy-makers and anyone interested in advancing the field to yield new insights into the retirement process in the 21st century.” (Ewa Sadurska-Duffy, Work, employment and society, Vol. 30 (6), 2016)
