Book Review: Jokes for Retirees and Seniors (That You May Not Want to Tell the Boss) by Bohdan D. Shandor

Retirement is very much a “good news-bad news” event in one’s life. The “good news” is that you’re retiring – the “bad news” is that you’re retiring.​

How the story of retirement unfolds depends on how each individual person looks at retirement. We at DOWNSIDE UP™ think retirement is a positive event because it is the beginning of a new chapter in one’s life that has yet to be written and YOU are the one writing the book, screenplay or narrative – whichever metaphor you prefer.​

At DOWNSIDE UP ™ we believe that no matter what the lifetime event is, the glass is always full– frankly, we don’t even know what an empty glass looks like! One reason for this view is the overwhelming importance of laughter. How one views life is very much a question of perception; and, humor and laughter can and do affect perception in a very positive way. This is in fact the reason why DOWNSIDE UP™ was formed as a publishing firm specializing in Joke Books.


My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I’m closing in on retirement and to being labeled a senior, so I had a feeling I would enjoy these jokes. Not only was I right, but I was pleasantly surprised. Some of these jokes are laugh out loud funny. I’m sure anyone will like this book, senior and retired or not.

This author has written several joke books. I like this one so much, I may have to check out more of them. If you like to laugh, you can’t go wrong with this book.
