Robert J. Bruss with Inman News says that If the book has a bias, it seems to be toward college towns as retirement destinations. Included on the “top 60” list are State College, Pa.; Madison, Wis.; Hanover, N.H.; Ithaca, N.Y.; Charlottesville, Va.; Chapel Hill, N.C.; Gainesville, Fla.; Fayetteville, Ark.; Austin, Texas; Boulder, Colo.; Tucson, Ariz.; San Luis Obispo, Calif.; Chico, Calif.; and Eugene, Ore.

University of Nevada in Las Vegas.
Oh well, let the race continue.
