Book Description

This is about career change and early retirement. The death of my best friend at a young age made us (my wife and I) reflect on the many other things in life we wanted to do besides work. Thus at age 55 I resigned from my successful academic career and started working intermittently in many different cultures in the US and abroad. This was the best decision we ever made and we have never looked back. It is hoped that the book will inspire others to get off the beaten path and possibly even motivate those with similar experiences to write about it. The book is meant for medical as well as non medical people. It is written in chronological fashion as a series of anecdotes, some medical, some non-medical, some funny, some not so funny, some in the USA and some in different cultures abroad. These anecdotes are interspersed with some philosophical considerations. I hope you will enjoy it and convince others to read it. You can download it for free.
