"Bruce Manners knows more than most Australians about living a fulfilling and purposeful retirement. His new book, Retirement’s Gift is full of wisdom and acumen about how to best live our ‘fourth quarter’ retirement years, which can be the most fraught period of our lives. His insights into living as a person of faith during these years are especially helpful."
- Paul Arnott, Executive Director, Q4: Rethinking Retirement
"Reading Bruce’s book is more like having a comforting yet challenging chat with a friend—you laugh a lot but there’s lots to think about afterwards. His stories are nicely balanced with research, interesting facts and interviews with experts. I was most intrigued about what my 18-year-old-self might say about where I’d ended up and finding purpose for the future."
- Professor Joanne Earl, Researcher in Retirement Planning and Adjustment, Macquarie University
