I own and have read each of these books. I'm one of those people that the likes the feel of a book in hand, however, I also own my absolute favorites in kindle editions so I can have discretely read on a plane, or during my lunch break.
The first two books are by Ernie J. Zelinski and I actually bought both these books over 10 years ago and still enjoy reading these for motivation. Yes, I've been thinking about retiring for a very long time. :-)
